Its use, as distinct from sensation, throws focus on the how rather than the what of our apprehending of things.
What is to be established as transcendental provides the justification or grounding of any particular knowledge we may attain. The use of the word is itself justified because it means 'going beyond' any particular bit of knowledge to its ground, to those organizing characteristics of our mode of cognition which makes that particular knowledge possible. ' The essential Kantian meaning is retained although it is expanded as the conception of experience is expanded to include, but not to be confined to, purely cognitive experience.
There are then two elemental constituents which are synthesized in any particular human cognition: the apriori concepts or categories and the apprehended sense impressions themselves. Kant termed our mode of receiving these impressions with the German word Anschauung. Unfortunately, it is habitually trans· lated into English as 'intuition' and this standard English render. ing causes all sorts of unnecessary confusion.
