I think: the expression by I. Kant for his (narrower) conception of the "Cogito" by Descartes. “The “I think" must be able to accompany all my ideas" (KrV B 131f). This "I think" guarantees that these ideas are my ideas and creates, as a transcendental apperception, a unity in the manifoldness of ideas. See also cogito, subjects.
