Transcendental Arguments II

This chapter considers reconstructions of Kant's anti-sceptical stance that highlight temporal features of one's mind: the ability to know of a series of one's mental states that have a specific ordering in time. Such knowledge, it is held, requires knowledge of outer objects — objects located outside one's mind in space. The reconstructors here are Paul Guyer and Arthur Melnick, and it is argued that they fail to provide a convincing Kantian anti-sceptical argument.

Keywords: Kant; Paul Guyer; Arthur Melnick; Transcendental Deduction; time-order
