Essays on Kant

Henry E. Allison

Oxford University Press

This essay contains a response to Burkhard Tuschling's thesis that already in the third Critique Kant abandoned his original “critical” view in favor of a “speculative” approach that anticipated later forms of idealism. Against this, it is maintained that, while it is true that this work contains a significant development of Kant's previous thought, it involves a deepening rather than an abandonment of “critical” principles. More specifically, it is argued that Kant's account of the principle of “logical” or “formal” purposiveness develops a line of thought that was already in place in the Appendix to the Transcendental Dialectic in the first Critique. Finally, in support of the “critical” nature of Kant's position in the third Critique, his conception of an intuitive intellect is contrasted with that of the young Hegel.

Keywords:   critical, first Critique, formal purposiveness, G. W. F. Hegel, idealism, intuitive intellect, logical purposiveness, principle of purposiveness, speculative, third Critique, Transcendental Dialectic
