Sample text

For it, every ap-perception and every image transforms itself immediately into movement which acts into the outer world and, thereby, partakes in space, time, and matter. Therefore, for this living, that is, acting, I exists no conflict between pure duration and extended space-time, between that which becomes and passes away in the flow of duration and that which exists in space. It belongs equally to both spheres through the transformation of that which is apperceived into action. Nay more: apperception, subsumed under the powerful primacy of action, already selects among the images.

Again, if the noise grows in intensity with repetition, we experience it with a constant level of pain (judged by its cause). To recapitulate: every moment of our duration contains, as virtual memory image, all earlier moments of our I. Memory makes duration into a manifold experience and thus conditions our actual inner life. But, one may object, in how many cases does the appeal to memory fail? How little do we really remember? This objection is in no way justified, because our “experiences” are falsified, materialized, socially conditioned—in short, they are conceptual.

He formulates the synthetic unity of apperception as the uppermost principle of every use of reason and he differentiates between the objective unity of self-consciousness and the subjective unity of consciousness, considering the latter a mere designation of the inner sense. Having done this, he feels compelled to admit that the manifold must needs be given in apperception before Reason can accomplish the synthesis; it is independent of it. However, it remains undetermined (‘Kritik der reinen Vernunft’ and earlier): Because should I imagine a reason who apperceives himself, like maybe a divine one, who not only imagines non-existing objects but through whose imagination the objects themselves would be simultaneously given and created, the categories—in the face of such a realization--would have no significance whatsoever.
