Logica naturalis, Healthy Understanding and the Reflecting Power of Judgment in Kant's Philosophy. The Source of the Problem of Judgment in the Leibniz-Wolffian Logic and Aesthetics

Kant-Studien 103 (2) (2012)
Abstract
The aim of this article is to explore historically the origin of the difficulty of founding the reflecting power of judgment as Kant outlines it in the Preface to the third Critique. Despite that a foundation of the power of judging in the system of Transcendental Philosophy was only established in 1790, we must interpret it as a critical solution for an old problem, which Kant had already recognized around 1770. Through his comprehension of the meaning of healthy understanding he already confirms the impossibility of determining the correctness of our judging activity from the use of rules. This insight of the problem must be understood in the context of the controversy about the relation between logica naturalis and logica artificialis as it occurs in the Leibniz-Wolffian aesthetics and logic. Although Kant had not yet developed the transcendental critique of taste around 1770, he already elucidates the problematic of judging through the model of taste and in close conjunction with this tradition.
