Chapter Summary

This chapter is devoted to Kants doctrine of inner sense; an element, central to Kants architectonic of human cognition and integral to the widest intentions of Kants philosophy. The thesis animating the chapter is that Kants doctrine of inner intuition is aporetic, and contains within itself an unresolved and on its own, original terms unresolvable tension. The defense of this thesis proceeds exegetically by means of an engagement of Kants first systematic exposition of the doctrine depicted famously by Weldon as an essential and yet unexplained ingredient in Kants philosophy as this appears in the Critique of Pure Reason. Throughout the chapter the author integrates received scholarly intimations and estimations of the doctrine of inner sense, in order to confirm the progress of the exegesis. It contributes to achieved scholarly comprehension of Kants doctrine, its functions within Kants first Critique, and its role within the development of Kants theoretical philosophy.

Keywords: aporia; Critique of Pure Reason; Kants doctrine of inner sense; Kants theoretical philosophy
