Example text

Ve, in a more convcntionalistic period, are usually puzzled by some of his decisions, and can only feel that Kant and his contemporaries were committing what Whitehead called the "fallacy of the perfect dictionary" -when the dictionary could not, in principle, exist for Kant at all. But the more important point is that the concepts with which Kant is most concerned, viz. the categories, are not fixed by definition and need not be fixed in this way. They are fixed because, as pure, they are not susceptible to experiential modification.

27 ReBexion 2930; see also Vntersllchung tiber die Deutlichkeit der Grundsiitze . ), II, S1; (tr. Beck, p. 262)-here. 22 23 Vorlesungen Kant's Theory of Definition 31 But in spite of the modern sound of this statement, mathematical definitions for Kant are real, not nominal. Mathematical entities are not arbitrary logical products of compatible logical predicates; the concepts have objective validity (in pure intuition) shown through the presentation of the corresponding determination. If the presentation is a product of the productive imagination, the construction is called schematic or pure, as of a figure (no matter how roughly drawn) used in a geometrical proof.

33 From this we see the following: (i) Mathematical theorems may be synthetic even if proved by the law of contradiction, i. e. by strictly logical procedure. Deducibility is not a sufficient condition for analyticity. To be analytic, in Kant's meaning, a proposition would have to be proven by the law of contradiction alone, i. e. its contradictory would have to be self-contradictory; but in mathematical proof by strict logic, the contradictory of the proposition contradicts some other assumed propositions.
