For the past couple of weeks I have been reading Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant. Currently I am stuck at the chapter on transcendental deduction of the categories (Version B). So far my own personal interpretation is that:
1.Original apperception is some primordial sense of self which cannot be grasped because it produces representation "I think" which helps us to grasp everything else.
2."I think" accompanies all given representation result is unity of apperception which gives us information on the number of representations in our mind.
3.Synthetic unity of apperception is a particular instance of unity of apperception i.e. it is synthesis of intuitively given manifold.
4.Product of synthesis is concept. Product of pure synthesis is category.
5.Pure synthesis is combination of the manifold of time itself. This manifold is given a priori. Keeping in mind what Kant wrote in transcendental aesthetics I presume this means that "I think" can be attributed to the combination of different sequences of time in the backdrop of unified form of inner sense.
6.Result of a pure synthesis is a pure concept of a certain degree of reality and unity on which we can base empirical concepts (sun appears as 10 000 moonlights)
7.Pure concepts act as basis for empirical ones which can be used in judgments to unite many representations under one ( All bodies are divisible. General concept of divisibility related to body which relates to some appearance.).
First of all, do these 7 points make any sense? Personally I don't like it because I seem to ignore the role of interpretation in all of this. But what do you think? Thanks.
