About this topic
Summary A central aspect of Kant's philosophical project during the Critical period was to set metaphysics on the secure path of a science. This was meant to be achieved by developing and defending transcendental idealism, a view that is largely motivated by considerations pertaining to the ideality of space and time. On the positive side, this project consisted in defending the applicability of metaphysical concepts, such as substance, causation and necessity to the phenomenal realm. On the negative side, it led to a limitation of metaphysics by identifying the boundaries beyond which it cannot reach, which involved to a critique of traditional metaphysics, in particular a critique of rational psychology, cosmology and theology.
Key works The key primary texts are: 1. Critique of Pure Reason (1781/1787), 2. Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science (1786), 3. Inaugural Dissertation (1770).

    Hume distinguished the principle that everything has a cause from the principle of the uniformity of nature, Viz., That like causes have like effects. In the second analogy of experience kant attempts to refute what he (erroneously) believed had been hume's explanation of our acceptance of the first principle. He did not there attempt to establish the second principle, But j dodge has shown that the second analogy implicitly contains a justification of the principle of like cause-Like effect.

    This dissertation stems from a conviction that a revised language for discussing the category of freedom would be of use to the philosophy of religion. Scholars of religion from a variety of methodological perspectives are faced with the task of analyzing the meaning of knowledge and belief claims about divine action and human response in interpreting religious experiences such as conversion, prayer and ritual. In the work of Immanuel Kant I find a model of the human will that can bear (...)
  15. Kant's Methodology: An Essay in Philosophical Archaeology.Charles P. Bigger - 1995 - Ohio University Press.
    Kant's revolution in methodology limited metaphysics to the conditions of possible experience. Since, following Hume, analysis—the “method of discovery” in early modern physics—could no longer ground itself in sense or in God's constituting reason a new arché, “origin” and “principle,” was required, which Kant found in the synthesis of the productive imagination, the common root of sensibility and understanding. Charles Bigger argues that this imaginative “between” recapitulates the ancient Gaia myth which, as used by Plato in the Timaeus, offers a (...)

    Since its 1929 publication, philosophers have been more or less unsure what to make of Heideggers Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics. Although it wielded more than its fair share of influence over the course of the twentieth century, its chief interpretive claims are mostly untenable today. Of course, it has always been recognized that the book was never intended as a straightforward piece of Kant interpretation. But neither does it appear to be a reliable presentation of Heideggers own thought. (...)

    Deep beneath the surface of Kant's theory of knowledge lies the metaphysical doctrine of noumena, things in themselves, intelligible entities . For lengthy periods these creatures are surprisingly unobtrusive and can be safely disregarded. But at certain points Kant hauls them to the surface and tries to put them to work in perplexing ways. My concern is not with these attempts, but with what can be learned, if not salvaged, from the metaphysical doctrine as it is expounded in the chapter (...)

    This paper offers two related refl ections on the questions of metaphysics after critique. The first is an analysis of the project of critique since Kant and its influence on the disputed status of metaphysics. It explores the theoretical and practical aspects of this by claiming that an understanding of thinking as negativity, whether in Hegelian form as determinate negation or in more radical deconstructive forms, lies at the heart of this disputed status. Not least, the relation of philosophy to (...)
