    Marius Stan (forthcoming). Kant and the Object of Determinate Experience. Philosophers' Imprint 15.
    An influential view has it that the paradigm application of Kant’s categories is Newton’s dynamics.

I show here that the categories are broad enough to avoid that problem: I prove that Kant can ground basic laws for all classical mechanics, which is demonstrably more general than Newton’s theory. To make my case, I survey three brands of Enlightenment dynamics, based respectively (...)
