Abstract

Our use of logic has never been given a proper justification. Contemporary analytic philosophy has failed in its attempts to avoid problems regarding epistemic justification, when it turned its attention to issues of language and logic. Kant's methodological criticism, combined with a heavily reconstructed version of his transcendental idealism, provide the only possible coherent explanation of how our possession of valid inference forms is possible.
