ABSTRACT

The second edition of the Critique of Pure Reason contains, according to Kant, only “one addition, strictly so called”, namely a “Refutation of Idealism”. (Bxxxix)1 It is this ‘addition’ which I want to examine in the present essay. Prima facie its very existence must astonish. For as every student of Kant knows, Kant’s solution to the “proper problem” (B19) of the Critique, that is, of how synthetic judgments are possible a priori, itself depends on an endorsement of idealism. On this point, there is no obscurity in Kant: “… the possibility of synthetic knowledge a priori… was properly the problem on the solution of which the fate of metaphysics wholly rests and to which my Critique… was entirely directed. The idealism … was… taken up into the system as the sole means of solving that problem (although it then also received confirmation from other grounds)”.2 More... »
