But that may just seem to make things worse. The most reasonable solution, it seems to me, is to suppose that the productive imagination that Kant has in mind in the A-Deduction does in fact consist in the provision of manifolds of associative anticipations – however, not simply as anticipations merely associated with various parts of a perceiver’s intuitional consciousness. What we might rather suppose is that those anticipations are regarded as actually incorporated into particular intuitings, as a condition for the relevant intellectual structuring.
B 160 – 161). ” Here a distinction is made between “the entire sensibility,” in relation to original apperception, and all possible appearances within that sensibility. , in the form of the inner intuition of myself. […] [This] really says no more than that in the whole time in which I am conscious of myself, I am conscious of this time as belonging to the unity of my Self, and it is all the same whether I say that this whole time is in Me, as an individual unity, or that I am to be found with numerical identity, in all of this time” (A 362).
But then, what of the further question: Without such purely apprehensive unity of apperception, and perhaps even still further conditions, what legitimacy is there to the claim that, just by virtue of the bare form of global intuiting, one is given a field for possible objects? Why not say that one is at most given the possibility for such a field? Here again, the suggestion is not that one is thereby given a field for possible objects, understood precisely as such a field. But the question may seem to remain as to what sense there could be to saying that anything is thereby given that might even in principle come to be so understood.
