Reflections on Kant's concept (and intuition) of space

Abstract
In this paper, I investigate an important aspect of Kant's theory of pure sensible intuition. I argue that, according to Kant, a pure concept of space warrants and constrains intuitions of finite regions of space. That is, an a priori conceptual representation of space provides a governing principle for all spatial construction, which is necessary for mathematical demonstration as Kant understood it.
