This work and the subsequent work done by Kant in the last twenty odd years of his life have enshrined his place in western philosophy as one of the greatest philosophers in that tradition, and I would say the greatest western philosopher to date. The Critique of Pure Reason was followed by two other Critiques, the Critique of Practical Reason and the Critique of Judgement, respectively on morals and aesthetics, leading to references of the Critiques by their order.

The history of metaphysics in the west is very long. At its center point are determinations of the relationship between thought, being, and the first cause of reality which we commonly call God. In particular, demonstrations of the necessity of a first cause is discussed by Plato and Aristotle; and their demonstration of this first cause had a big impact on western philosophy.

This is an important conclusion by Descartes since it holds that God would not allow us to have false impressions of the world if we use our reason judiciously.

Even more important is the shift in the order of metaphysical demonstration that occurs in Descartes.

Or to put it another way, objects conform to cognitions and cognitions do not conform to objects. All in all, our experience of the world is, basically, an experience of the operations of our minds.

Objects are necessary, but how we understand objects is ultimately dependent on our categories of thought. The latter half of the First Critique brings us into a territory where one can begin to understand why people would be unnerved by this work.

This portion, called the Transcendental Dialectic, considers the limits of our thoughts. This is where our cognitions run beyond the structuring of the phenomena of objects and deduce ideas that have no objects. Kant calls these ideas transcendental illusions.

Logical illusion, which consists in the mere imitation of the form of reasons Hence as soon as this attentiveness is focused on the case before us, logical illusion entirely disappears. This is the case because transcendental illusions arise out of the application of logical analysis to the limits of our cognitions.

Kant identified four ideas of transcendental illusion: This conclusion is worrisome beyond the impossibility of demonstration of these four ideas, since it leads to skepticism on matters which grounded the ancient regimes. The First Critique shows that humans are radically independent in establishing their claims to truth.

This intellectual stance is the enemy of the tyrant and the censor. This notion urges us to get behind our sources and find out if we are asking the right kinds of questions. Critique, and self-rulership, begin by asking, how do I know this is true? Works Cited: Kant, Immanuel.
