This chapter introduces Kant’s theory of categories and corresponding principles. It explains and evaluates Kant’s attempt to derive his categories from forms of judgment. It also discusses in detail the principles that do not depend on the Transcendental Deduction–namely, the Axioms of Intuition, the Anticipations of Perception, the Postulates of Empirical Thought–and introduces those that do depend on the Transcendental Deduction–namely, the Analogies of Experience.

Keywords: objective validity; Metaphysical Deduction; Transcendental Deduction; Table of Judgments; forms of judgment; categories; Axioms of Intuition; Anticipations of Perception; Analogies of Experience; Postulates of Empirical Thought
