It is important to note that in solving this antinomy of teleology in nature Kant is building a further argument for his resolution of the antinomy of human freedom, which he had dealt with earlier in his Critique of Practical Reason.

Freedom means that the final form is unknown. Unpredictable, truly novel change is thus possible and stability is sustained by ethical universals. In other words, identity, or organization, evolves in essentially unknowable ways. Here the unknowable whole is achieved through choice, or design of the parts. 3 Formative Teleology in which movement is to a final form, a pre-given state already contained within the formative process that produces it. This means that change takes the form of continuity of identity, with only context-dependent variations in its manifestation.

Nature and origin of variation/ change: corrective, “getting it right,” aligning, fitting designed change through rational exercise of human choice to get it right in terms of universals shift from one given form to another due to context. 1 Causal frameworks The age-old question of stability and change • 27 possible in the path toward the end state but only within pre-given limits. From this viewpoint, the source of stability is the functioning of the parts to give an enfolded final form and the source of rather limited change is the variety of ways in which the parts can relate in order to produce the final state.
