From the Deduction of the Categories or Pure Concepts of the Understanding, Kant proceeds to the deduction of the a priori synthetic principles that govern their application in judgements. This chapter explores how the pure concepts of quantification, of positive and negative characterization, of substantiality, causality, and reciprocal interaction, and lastly, of the possible, the existent, and the necessary, can be applied to what intuitively appears before us, so as to yield empirical or phenomenal knowledge.

Keywords: transcendental schema; intuition; perception; experience; substantial performance; causal regularity; coexistence; empirical thought; idealism; Noumena
