Immanuel Kant on Transcendentals - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments

I 81f
Transcendental Knowledge/Kant: ("knowledge a priori") conditions of possibility of knowledge - can be guaranteed only by mathematization of the given of intuitions. - Criterion for science.
Strawson V 19ff
Transcendental Analytics/Kant: 1. Experience: order - 2. unit in the same order as required for the awareness (Thesis of the unity of consciousness) - 3. experience of objects is distinguishable of experience of what about the case is, so that judgments are also possibly independent of the subjective experience (objectivity thesis) - 4. objects are substantially spatially - 5. a uniform spatiotemporal system is necessary - 6. Physical objects: need certain principles of perseverance and causality (theses of analogies).
Stra 74 f
Transcendental Deduction/Kant/Strawson: premise: experience includes a manifold that is suitable for being united somehow in uniform judgments.
V 75
StrawsonVs: the "pure" terms have no necessary application on the experience.
Stra V 134
Transcendental Ideas/Kant: 1. absolute unity of the subject, 2. the conditions of phenomena, 3. the conditions of objects.
Stroud I 153
Transcendental/Kant/Stroud: transcendental are the things independent of us, albeit every sense impression is dependent on us. - Difference: transcendent: claims an otherworldly realm of experience - transcendental/Kant: is a theory, if it has to do with the general conditions of our knowledge of things independent of experience. - This is a condition of empirical knowledge at all. - These conditions cannot be known empirically themselves - (but a priori). - Experience/Kant: shows that a thing is so and so, but not that it cannot be different.
Stroud I 162
Definition transcendental realism/Kant: sees the external things as something seperated from the senses - KantVs: that leads to empirical idealism - Problem: we are aware of our representations, but do not know whether they correspond with something that exists.
Adorno XIII 13
Transcendental/Kant/Adorno: in Kant, the concept of the transcendental is, in the first place, nothing other than the epitome of all the investigations which refer to synthetic judgments a priori.
