Example text

Consequently: is the order in the third table not somehow the best? Should not the weakest term (which for us corresponds to becoming) not be placed first overall? Kant takes the table of judgement – which is to provide him the categories – as he finds it in the logic of the time, in “general logic”. In a usual logic, however, the order is that of exposition: the general will precede the particular, the affirmative precedes the negative, and the categorical precedes the hypothetical. Here, in Kant, there ought to be an order of “deduction”.

Does it express an original, non-derived function of the intellect, as Kant would wish for every category? Does it deserve to stand among “predicaments”? Or merely among the pure concepts derived from the first, therefore only among what Kant calls the “praedicabilia”? 44 noica 3 becoming within being Since Kant’s “guiding thread” is the judgements, let us seek the meaning of the category of community under the heading of the judgements. What is the meaning of a “disjunctive” judgement? How original is it as a function of thought?

Then could it be a confirmation of the validity of the Kantian categories, which would thus be applicable everywhere, in any field of knowledge, even in ontology? But how is it that things hold so well that the three ontological terms seem to be another facet of the categories and a new systematisation of them? How is it that it is not the categories that apply to the three terms, but rather the latter that come to envelop and “make possible” the categories? Kant says at one point (ibid. p. 123): we cannot know why we have categories and why they have that number; (just as little as regards time 53 54 noica 3 becoming within being and space).
