Stella Sandford: Natural History, Transcendental Logic and Race

Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy
Research Seminar 

Abstract:
This paper examines the relationship between Kant's idea of transcendental logic and the scientific status of 17th- and 18th-century systems of natural classification. It argues that the former helps to explain the latter surprisingly well. It then considers Kant's own attempt to construct a concept of ‘race' within this transcendental natural-logical framework.
