Philosophy - Colloquium - Patrick Leland

"Kant on Inference as Judgement"

In previously unnoticed remarks that span four decades, Kant consistently classifies inference as an act of judgment. I explain why Kant originally held this view and then examine what this implies about his account of the nature of judgment.  I present evidence for a surprising implication: namely, that, for Kant, an act of judgment necessarily coincides with other, inferentially-related acts of judgment.
