The chapter lays out the goal of the book, which is to present an account of Kant’s theory of the cognitive subject that is both historically situated and illuminating for issues of contemporary interest. The latter include the efficacy of ‘transcendental’ argument, the nature of rational cognition, the nature of consciousness, and the ability of thinkers to self-ascribe their states and to understand the states of other thinkers. It also presents the book’s interpretive framework in terms of Kant’s project of developing a ‘scientific’ metaphysics.
