However, the limitations of this problematic of self-consciousness, which derive from its restriction within the realm of a transcendental conceptualisation of time, suggest the need for a further rupture with precisely this way of conceptualising time and the concomitant model of selfconsciousness in terms of formal identity. 3. The above analytically distinguished sensible representations lie in need of synthesis. The latter is an act of spontaneity, performed by the faculty of understanding, which is considered as a pure self-legislating activity.

Transcendental philosophy has the peculiarity that besides the rules (or rather the universal conditions of rules), which are given in the pure concepts of the understanding, it can also specify the instance to which the rule is to be applied’ (B175, my emphasis). It is the Analytic of Principles, the Schematism and the System of the Principles of pure understanding, under the common title, the Transcendental Doctrine of Judgement, which will provide the canon for judgement. In this section, Kant attempts to solve the problem of judging power, but in fact only specifies the terms of the subsumption of the particulars under the universal, without actually addressing the issue of the instance of the subsumption, namely, the problem of how this particular could be subsumed under a given concept.

The common feature of the arguments is a firm contrast between experience of objects – which includes necessary connections – and subjective states – which are deprived of any kind of necessary connection. This pattern of argument, under the guise of the very idea of judgement itself, exists in both the Prolegomena and in the heart of the CPR. The judgements produced by the use of the categories are objective, in the sense that they assert necessary and universal validity and are distinct from subjective judgements which consist in contingent and arbitrary representations.
