Chapter Summary

The content of the Vom Inneren Sinne fragment, and its central concept of cosmological apperception, is anticipated in the cosmological antinomy and the doctrine of the merely regulative status of the cosmological ideas, an extension of the paralogism of rational psychology as just treated. Each contextual element is itself contextualized not by the ideality thesis most generally, but by the heterogeneity thesis, and by the indeterminacy of inner intuition that follows from its inconstancy and aspatiality. The Vom Inneren Sinne fragment, or Leningrad Reflexion, offers perhaps the most widely-circulated reflection in the unpublished writings dedicated exclusively to (a) the formal character of inner sense and (b) the functional role of inner intuition in the architectonic of human cognition. Kant retained the Leningrad Reflection unpublished. Kant begins his reflection with a review of the basic claims of the Aesthetic. Time is subjective rather than objective, and therefore yields only appearance.
