A Daring Adventure of Reason

(p.146) Epilogue
Kant’s Organicism

Jennifer Mensch

University of Chicago Press

This chapter argues that Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason was meant to provide a new logic, a transcendental logic capable of moving beyond the merely analytic conclusions of syllogistic reasoning and capable of securing the claims reached by way of induction. For these reasons, Kant secured Bacon’s inductive practices. The choice of Bacon—father of the “New Science”—was, in fact, a case of subversive appropriation on Kant’s part and that what it announced, more than anything else, was his specific intention with respect to a redefinition of empirical science altogether.

Keywords:   new logic, transcendental logic, syllogistic reasoning, induction, bacon, inductive practices, empirical science
