Without considering a distinction between objective and purely apprehensive transcendental unity, Baiasu (, p. ) applies this to the “I” of (objective) transcendental unity. One possibility is perhaps precisely that, while neither involves a distinct targeting consciousness, the latter involves a “sense of self” without an “I” at all.  This is most convincingly argued in Waxman . See e. g. p.  –  and ch. .  One might agree with this last point but take it that Kant’s here unarticulated view is that any sort of synthesis of apprehension is parasitic upon properly objective synthesis.

Only through the recognition of its limits can philosophy be true to its own idea and thereby secure the conditions that will enable metaphysics to establish itself as a science. This critique, he cautioned, cannot be a critique of “books and systems”, one philosopher’s critical examination of the doctrines of others. Every school and every party to the controversies speaks in the name of reason, yet every claim is contested. So it is reason itself that must come under scrutiny, and by the same token it is reason itself that must carry out the investigation.
