This chapter deals with what is perhaps the most important part of Kant's thought from the standpoint of transcendental objectivity: his doctrine of practical reason, with its three postulates of freedom, God, and immortality, all of which assures us of the real existence of objects that transcend possible experience, and of which the first is even said, in a number of passages, to provide us with actual knowledge of such existence.

Keywords: transcendental objectivity; practical reason; freedom; God; immortality
