Ars Characteristica Kantiana: Ludwig Benedict Trede's Forgotten Necessary Grammar

Kant-Studien 94 (3):333-351 (2003)
This paper discusses a nowadays completely forgotten 18th century attempt of constructing an artificial universal language in a Kantian framework. I give a brief sketch of this language and then address the continuing philosophical significance of the project, focusing in particular on the notions of predication and the copula and on the problem of psychologism.
