(p.81) 7 A Transcendental Deduction for A Priori Concepts
Kant’s Thinker

Patricia Kitcher (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Kant’s theory of the cognitive subject emerges in the course of the transcendental deduction—the argument for the legitimacy of the categories. This chapter answers some basic questions about the deduction: What is the nature of the argument? What are its premises and conclusions? It also suggests a way of understanding Kant’s arresting claim that cognition contains ‘a priori’ elements that arise in cognition through the activities of the mind.

Keywords:   transcendental deduction, a priori, mental activities
