Example text

19 This “transcendent” (KdrV, A845/B874) sense of nature I take to be already anticipated in Metaphysik L1: “But the sum of the particular natures alone, and the natures of all parts, does not yet constitute the entirety of nature; rather to that must also be added the unification” (AA XXVIII, 216, 37). 20 In this sentence I take Kant to claim that there is a sense of nature in its entirety that surpasses the meaning of nature as the sum total of all the objects given in experience and that this, which will later become the “transcendent” sense of nature in its entirety, is related to the Idea of nature as a unified system in accordance with a certain teleological principle of reason.

The judgment that proceeds in its investigation of nature according to reason’s principle of purposiveness is called teleological judgment, which, furthermore, belongs to the class of reflective judgments. For Kant, determinative judgment is “the faculty for thinking of the particular as contained under the universal” (KdU, AA V, 179), or the “ability to subsume the particular under the universal” (EE, AA XX, 202). Reflective judgment is a type of a non-determinative judgment that seeks the universal that is not yet given.

Such a principle, namely, opens up for our reason, as applied to the fields of experience, entirely new prospects of connecting up things in the world in accordance with teleological laws, and thereby attaining to the greatest systematic unity among them. (KdrV, A686-7/B714-5) It is questionable again whether Kant’s assumption of a single supersensible ground of nature adds anything to our representation of nature as a systematic unity. 39 But, on Kant’s view, it is in the nature of reason to be dissatisfied with the idea that nature’s amenability to our rational ordering can be explained by nature’s contingent mechanical unity.
