290-7 Graduate Seminar: Kant’s Transcendental Deduction Warren F 2-4 234 Moses

We will discuss some of the central themes of Kant’s metaphysics and epistemology by closely examining the argument of the “Transcendental Deduction of the Categories” and related texts in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Prolegomena, as well as some of the relevant secondary literature. The topics in Kant that I plan to cover include consciousness and apperception, the unity of the self, the character of conceptual representation, the notions of a category, of judgment, and of the form of a judgment, and the concept of an object.
