The Dialectic of the Soul and the World
This chapter focuses on Transcendental Dialectic. It examines the manoeuvres of a type of thought that is not content to use its concepts on empirical material, and to justify concepts by their empirical ability, but which endeavours rather to ascend to certain highest conceptual Ideals – that of the absolute soul or object, the absolute cosmos or sum total of reality, or the absolute divine source of all existence – and in so doing necessarily transcends possible experience. The chapter also criticizes the phenomenally empty judgements and reasonings to which they lead.
