Kant's Transcendental Imagination

The position and position of transcendental psychology in Kant's Critique of natural cause has been a resource of a few competition. This paintings offers an in depth argument for restoring transcendental psychology to a crucial position within the interpretation of Kant's Analytic, within the strategy supplying a close reaction to extra "austere" analytic readings.

It concerns our inability to hear a chord from abovespecifically, our inability to hear the minor chord generated by C as C minor instead of F minor. * The hypothesis I have to offer underlies the theory exposed in this paper. Here it is: The first and most important condition into which we are born is telluric gravity. Gravity permeates our whole beingfirst of all and totally, our imagination. Now in the Pythagorean table there is no such thing as telluric gravity but only gravitation around generatorsa sort of a compound planetary system with the monas as its center.

About the multitude of tones we may say that they are different from one another, but we may not say that they are different in pitch, because no concept of altitude has yet entered the system.

About the multitude of tones we may say that they are different from one another, but we may not say that they are different in pitch, because no concept of altitude has yet entered the system. A triad pair sprung from the same generator in such a system is to be described as a pair of identical chords developed in opposite directions.
