|Holz I 82
Consistent Definiteness/Kant/Holz: "Everything existing is defined": i.e. in order to recognize a thing completely, one has to recognize everything possible, and thereby one has to determine it, no matter if it is affirmative or negative.
The consistent definiteness is therefore a concept which we can never represent in concreto in its totality. It is merely an idea of reason which prescribes to the mind the rule of its complete use.
Kant's subject-centered solution reduces the world to phenomenality.
Its being in itself is inaccessible.
Metaphysics/Kant: therefore metaphysics is impossible! But it is also unnecessary!
Transcendental philosophy (as Kant calls the theory of constitutional conditions) is sufficient._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
