    Kant on causality, freedom, and objectivity by William L Harper and Ralf Meerbote, University of Minnesota Press () Kant's criticism of metaphysics by Author: Tina Plottel. The argument is given in the Second Analogy, and is very convoluted. There are competing reconstructions by Guyer and Friedman, see Watkins's Kant and the Metaphysics of Causality, p or Kitcher's Kant's Transcendental Psychology, p. More broadly, "the project of the Analogies is to show that we can apply temporal concepts to objects—we can assign them determinate places in time.

    Kant's exposition of the transcendental ideas begins once again from the logical distinction among categorical, hypothetical, and disjunctive this distinction, as we have seen, the understanding derives the concepts of substance, cause, and community, which provide the basis for rules that obtain as natural laws within our experience.

    Kant’s Moral Argument for the Existence of God ©Peter Sjöstedt-H – Immanuel Kant () – the ‘Godfather’ of modern philosophy – is generally revered for his three critical books: The Critique of Pure Reason (1 st), The Critique of Practical Reason (2 nd), and the Critique of Judgement (3 rd). Contrasts a metaphysical reading of Kant’s notion of freedom with recent accounts of freedom offered by Allen Wood in a book on Hegel and Henry Allison in a book on Kant. Wood argues that Kant’s account is more concerned with the metaphysics of causation than Hegel’s and is therefore weaker, whereas Allison proposes and defends an understanding of freedom in Kant that plays down the role.
