Modern Philosophy 2:109-113 (2008)

In this paper, the imagination in Kant's critical philosophy in the inconsistency of expression, imagination and reason from the perspective of the universal law a comprehensive review of Kant's imagination position on the issue of consistency. In the field of knowledge, imagination played a comprehensive role; in the practice areas, creating imagination played a role; in the field of aesthetic, imaginative play the role of free association. In either case, the universal law of all rational imagination was fundamental to the statute. In face of the inconsistent expression of imagination throughout Kant's critical philosophy, this thesis aims at a reexamination of Kant's consistent stance on the subject of imagination from the perspective of the universal principles of reason. In the domain of epistemology, imagination functions as a synthesizing force ; in the practical domain, imagination is chiefly intended for creation; in the aesthetic domain, imagination functions as free association. In any case, imagination is subject to the constraint from the universal principles of reason
