Of all major philosophical works, The Critique of Pure Reason is one of the most rewarding, yet one of the most difficult. Norman Kemp Smiths Commentary elucidates not only textural questions & minor issues, but also the central problems which arise, he contends, from the conflicting tendencies of Kants own thinking. This Commentary by Kants foremost translator into English continues to be in demand with Kant scholars.Preface to the 1st EditionPreface to the 2nd EditionINTRODUCTIONI TEXTUAL PAGEKants Method of composing the Critique of Pure ReasonII HISTORICALKants Relation to Hume & to LeibnizIII GENERAL1 The Nature of the a priori2 Kants Contribution to the Science of Logic3 The Nature of Consciousness4 Phenomenalism, Kants Substitute for Subjectivism5 The Distinction between Human & Animal Intelligence6 The Nature & Conditions of Self-Consciousness7 Kants 3fold Distinction between Sensibility, Understanding & Reason8 The place of the Critique of Pure Reason in Kants Philosophical SystemTHE CRITIQUE OF PURE REASONTitleMottoDedication to Freiherr von ZedlitzPREFACE TO THE 1ST EDITIONComment on PrefaceDogmatism, Scepticism, CriticismPREFACE TO THE 2ND EDITIONThe Copernican HypothesisINTRODUCTIONComment upon the Argument of Kants IntroductionHow are Synthetic a priori Judgments possible?The Analytic & Synthetic MethodsPurpose & Scope of the CritiqueKants Relation to HumeMeaning of the term TranscendentalTHE TRANSCENDENTAL DOCTRINE OF ELEMENTSPart I THE TRANSCENDENTAL AESTHETICDefinition of TermsKants conflicting Views of SpaceSection I SPACEKants Attitude to the Problems of Modern GeometrySection II TIMEKants Views regarding the Nature of Arithmetical ScienceKants conflicting Views of TimeGeneral Observations on the Transcendental AestheticThe Distinction between Appearance & IllusionKants Relation to BerkeleyThe Paradox of Incongruous CounterpartsPart II THE TRANSCENDENTAL LOGICIntroductionI Logic in GeneralII Transcendental LogicIII The Division of General Logic into Analytic & DialecticDivision I THE TRANSCENDENTAL ANALYTICBook I THE ANALYTIC OF CONCEPTSChapter I THE CLUE TO THE DISCOVERY OF ALL PURE CONCEPTS OF THE UNDERSTANDINGSection I The Logical Use of the UnderstandingComment on Kants ArgumentStages in the Development of Kants Metaphysical DeductionSection II The Logical Function of the Understanding in JudgmentSection III The Categories on Pure Concepts of the UnderstandingDistinction between Logical Forms & CategoriesPart II THE TRANSCENDENTAL LOGICChapter II DEDUCTION OF THE PURE CONCEPTS OF THE UNDERSTANDINGAnalysis of the Text: the 4 Stages in the Development of Kants ViewsI Enumeration of the 4 StagesII Detailed Analysis of the 4 StagesKants Doctrine of the Transcendental ObjectIII Evidence yielded by the Reflexionen & Lose Blätter in Support of the Analysis of the TextIV Connected Statement & Discussion of Kants Subjective & Objective Deductions in the 1st EditionDistinction between the Subjective & the Objective DeductionsThe Subjective Deduction in its initial empirical StagesObjective Deduction as given in the 1st EditionThe later Stages of the Subjective DeductionThe Distinction between Phenomenalism & SubjectivismTranscendental Deduction of the Categories in the 2nd EditionThe Doctrine of Inner SenseKants Refutations of IdealismInner Sense & ApperceptionBook II THE ANALYTIC OF PRINCIPLESChapter I THE SCHEMATISM OF PURE CONCEPTS OF THE UNDERSTANDINGChapter II SYSTEM OF ALL PRINCIPLES OF PURE UNDERSTANDING1 The Axioms of Intuition2 The Anticipations of Perception3 The Analogies of ExperienceA 1st AnalogyB 2nd AnalogySchopenhauers Criticism of Kants ArgumentKants Subjectivist & Phenomenalist Views of the Causal RelationReply to Further Criticisms of Kants ArgumentPart II THE TRANSCENDENTAL LOGICC 3rd AnalogySchopenhauers Criticism of Kants Argument4 The Postulates of Empirical Thought in GeneralChapter III ON THE GROUND OF THE DISTINCTION OF ALL OBJECTS WHATEVER INTO PHENOMENA & NOUMENARelevant Passages in the Section on AmphibolyAlterations in the 2nd EditionComment on Kants ArgumentAppendix.
