General comment on teleology CHAPTER SUMMARY: Kant's philosophy defines itself as transcendental or critical philosophy. `Critique' means to determine the nature and limits of a given `faculty' or `power'; this is done by means of a transcendental method which seeks to investigate these faculties by The Structure of Kant's Book showing their role as a priori conditions of any experience.

As we saw above, its a priori principles do make possible knowledge of the world according to the categories. The understanding, however, is quite limited, because unlike reason it is not a thinking that is completely abstracted from any worldly thing. Rather, its concepts only function validly if they can be `exhibited' [darstellen] (sometimes translated as `presented' in distinction to `represented') in things that are in space and time and are thus a part of nature. That is, what the understanding understands are things that are given to us by the faculty of sensibility, by which we mean roughly `things sensed in space and time'.

Very briefly, Kant needs to find a way to make comprehensible the fact that the two different parts of philosophy (theoretical and practical) must pertain to the sensible world. This can be the case, he claims, only if it turns out that nature must be seen (from a certain perspective) as itself heading in the direction of the final purpose, the attainment of the highest good. In other words, nature must be seen as purposive with respect to the purposes given by freedom. Since judgement provides the principle of nature's purposiveness in general, it will be judgement that brings the two parts together.
