Bir Derinlik Olarak Kant Mantığının Veçheleri
The notion of a transcendental logic is a crucial element of the famous “transcendental argument” which Kant devises in his Critique of Pure Reason to the effect that the pure concepts of the faculty of understanding, i.e. the abstract conceptual forms which are traditionally conceived as the basic categories of thought and/or reality, apply to the objective world of experience by necessity. This paper attempts to discuss and highlight various aspects of that notion with the sole intention of illustrating the fact that the idea of a Kantian logic is merely a special perspective – in both senses of the word – on traditional logic simpliciter, instead of being a variation or correction thereof. This it does without being concerned either with the validity or soundness of the greater argument to which the notion contributes, or with the exact location of the relevant division of Transcendental Logic within the corpus. The main point of this illustration is only to show that Kant's deviation – if any – from traditional logic is not in the elements but in their ordering with respect to analogical priority. The paper begins by very briefly characterizing the deviation in terms of the Early Modern notion of idea; it then tries to make sense of the special kind of abstractness or purity communicated by the two logical tables that appear in the (so-called) Metaphysical Deduction, i.e. those of forms of judgment and of the categories, with constant reminders that Kant's overall approach to logic is distinctively semantic in its nature.
