Transcendental Techniques

Let’s gather the concept of “transcendental techniques” through the mutual determination of its terms:

TODO Look at “technic/technique” in Kant

(FI p. 200, p. 7). He illustrates the distinction by redescribing the imperatives of skill and prudence presented in GMM as ’technical’ imperatives. He then extends the concept of technical judgement to include a technical procedure which is followed by the power of judgement, and argues that this procedure is followed when judging natural objects. From this he derives a ’technic of nature’ which consists in judging natural objects ’as if their possibility rested on art’ (p. 201, p. 8). The concept of a ’technic of nature’ is crucial for Kant’s philosophy of nature developed in the second part of CJ and subsequently extended in OP.
