Prauss suggests that objective validity for Kant means simply the capacity to be true or false. But this capacity depends upon the determinateness of the perceptual judgment as possibly true or false of this particular object. Otherwise put, Prauss’ solution falls prey to the criticism by Hoppe, which can be summarized as follows: private perceptual judgments are objectively determined prior to the functioning of the unity of apperception. A private perception is of some definite object; it is not a Gewühl (A111) of random sensations (Hoppe, 109, 149).
In short, the analysis or explanation of how we perceive a dog is equally valid for the perception of any four-footed animal, and hence it is no explanation of any particular perceptual act whatsoever. , of empirical science, and so as constructed by the full transcendental machinery, that is also a contingent, historically changing being, and more specifically, of deriving a definite phenomenological look, the look of the dog, from rules on the one hand and chaotic sensation on the other. In short, the object of experience is an interpretation from the standpoint of experience, and a transcendental construction from the standpoint of the critical philosophy.
Kant’s strategy, so understood, has two noteworthy features. First it makes room for a proper understanding of both science and metaphysics. It argues, for example, that mathematics cannot contain only analytic truths, and that metaphysics cannot aspire to establish truths which transcend experience. Beck provides a clear summary of Kant’s developing thought on these issues from the 1760s to the 1770 Inaugural Dissertation, but I shall not comment on those historical antecedents to the first Critique.
