Kant and the Subject of Critique: On the Regulative Role of the Psychological Idea

Overview

Immanuel Kant is strict about the limits of self-knowledge: our inner sense gives us only appearances, never the reality, of ourselves. Kant may seem to begin his inquiries with an uncritical conception of cognitive limits, but in Kant and the Subject of Critique, Avery Goldman argues that, even for Kant, a reflective act must take place before any judgment occurs. Building on Kant’s metaphysics, which uses the soul, the world, and God as regulative principles, Goldman demonstrates how Kant can open doors to ...

Overview

Immanuel Kant is strict about the limits of self-knowledge: our inner sense gives us only appearances, never the reality, of ourselves. Kant may seem to begin his inquiries with an uncritical conception of cognitive limits, but in Kant and the Subject of Critique, Avery Goldman argues that, even for Kant, a reflective act must take place before any judgment occurs. Building on Kant’s metaphysics, which uses the soul, the world, and God as regulative principles, Goldman demonstrates how Kant can open doors to reflection, analysis, language, sensibility, and understanding. By establishing a regulative self, Goldman offers a way to bring unity to the subject through Kant’s seemingly circular reasoning, allowing for critique and, ultimately, knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

David Farrell Krell

"Kant is strict about the limits of self-knowledge: our inner sense give us only appearances—never the reality—of ourselves. Avery Goldman shows lucidly and brilliantly how the regulative use of a psychological idea—the idea of a critical, thinking self—can resolve this paradox." —David Farrell Krell, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität

Bernard Freydberg

"Original and expertly executed.... the regulative idea of the soul both makes possible the undertaking of critique and follows from it." —Bernard Freydberg, Duquesne University

"Goldman deserves credit for providing a sustained and resourceful argument that shows the importance of the notion of the subject for comprehending Kant’s transcendental method. For this reason, the present volume should interest both Kant scholars and those interested in the German idealist tradition." —Journal of the History of Philosophy
