Sample text

The force of this argument for the necessary role of the a priori is drawn from the cognitive achievement of mathematics in exhibiting the a priori ways in which space and time actually construct or synthesize sensations. It isolates the a priori ingredient, the ingredient that constrains mathematics and provides its axioms. It thus reflects how all synthesis is constrained or ruled by the a priori. This is clearly a huge claim concerning the nature of mathematics and relies upon a Euclidean geometry that has now been supplemented by non-Euclidean hyperbolic and elliptic geometries (Kline 1981: 446–7).

As a result the understanding’s a priori forms of response to sensation reflect the ways in which sensation has already been unified. They reflect the ‘silent work’ of the understanding that precedes its ‘noisy work’ of comparison, connection and separation. This is something that we will continue to explore because it is crucial to the complementarity or togetherness of the synthetic and the a priori in an architectonic or unifying account of experience. Understanding compares, connects and separates in order to end up with concepts that extend our knowledge of experience.

We would either lack openness to concrete situations and particularities or lack the reach that the abstract has in encompassing different aspects of the concrete. Henry E. Allison sums this up when he writes that ‘[t]he essential point is that in order to recognize the possibility of judgements that are synthetic in Kant’s sense, it is first necessary to recognize the complementary roles of concepts and sensible intuitions in human knowledge’ (Allison 1992: 325). This is the complementarity or togetherness of abstract concepts and concrete sensible intuitions in forms of judgement that are necessary conditions for the cognition of experience.
