But remember also that Kant provided a deduction only of the pure concepts of the understanding, on the grounds that it was only there that we needed to worry about objective validity and empirical adequacy.

Heidegger, for example, insisted that the imagination shows up in the Critique of Pure Reason as an inassimilable ‘rogue faculty’ that challenges Kant’s initially clean dichotomy between spontaneous understanding and receptive intuition, and he claims that if Kant had followed his own line of argument, he would have been required to rethink the critical project at its very core, scrapping some of its central tenets such as the a priori necessity and security of the 16 17 See, for instance, Strawson (1966) and Bennett (1966).
