Aristotle’s “principle of contradiction” is described in Metaphysics as the most “certain” and “indisputable” of principles: “the same attribute cannot at the same time belong and not belong to the same subject in the same respect”. Wolff’s statement, “something cannot simultaneously be and not be”, is a further attempt to suggest that the concept is always already defined by its predicate in a plane of temporal simultaneity. In the Inaugural Dissertation, On the Form and Principles of the Sensible and Intelligible World (1770), Kant changed the definition of metaphysics from “the science of substantial forces” to the science of the “limits of human reason”.
The function of the faculty of reason is both to submit, as well as to give itself, to the faculty of understanding. Since reason does not function within determinable boundaries, its dual operations of submission and giving are not ascribable to a munificent, divine or transcendental source. By virtue of reason’s operations, understanding obtains the right to legislate over the faculties of imagination and reason. Hence, legislation (by understanding) and the affirmation of judgement (also by understanding) are both forms of realizing reason’s gift of itself.
To obtain his chair in philosophy, Kant was required to write a thesis: On the Form and Principles of the Sensible and Intelligible World. I wrote this over the summer vacation and gave it as an “Inaugural Address” on 21 August 1770. This thesis was a pivotal work, summing up the achievements of the 1750s and 1760s and also preparing the ground for the Critiques of Pure Reason and Practical Reason. As prescribed by official university rules, Kant’s thesis, and previous ones he had submitted, were written in Latin.
