This may well be the case, but so long as empirical realism has no consistent relation with Kant’s arguments in the deduction, especially with regard to the role of the understanding and its relation to intuition, it ends up as a mere assertion: empirical realism is ultimately equated with the assumption of the ‘things in themselves’, and, consequently, does not essentially intervene in the understanding–intuition relation, despite Kant’s permanent efforts to incorporate empirical reality in his cognitive enterprise and render legitimate – by delineating the limits – the concepts of the understanding.

For both the synthetic and the analytic Kant’s Transcendental Deduction 21 approaches derive from Kant’s higher standpoint, namely, that of transcendental logic. Deduction from the ‘objectivity of self-consciousness’ The CPR, though the texts of both editions provide a much more sophisticated exposition of the Deduction than the teaching version of the Prolegomena, contains many sections that allow a reading in terms of the Prolegomena. In the Critique, Kant’s path is the reverse of that found in the Prolegomena: instead of assuming the a priori knowledge of objects and seeking to justify the employment of the categories by means of this original assumption, he puts at the centre of his enterprise the necessity of the subject’s self-consciousness as the source for the justification of the employment of the categories.

As Kant clearly states, They are concepts of an object in general, by means of which its intuition is regarded as determined in regard to one of the logical 20 Challenges to German Idealism functions of judging. , all bodies are divisible. Only in regard to the merely logical employment of the understanding it remains undetermined which of the two concepts one is to give the function of the subject and which that of the predicate. For one can also say: something divisible is a body. Through the concept of substance, however, if I bring the concept of body under it, it is determined that its empirical intuition in experience must always be considered only as subject, never as mere predicate; and so with all the other categories.
