Things and Continuance

The preceding chapter has considered how in general Kant holds that metaphysical principles can be verified. This has been done by comparing and contrasting it with the way in which he holds that geometrical judgments are verified. In dealing with Kant's account of verification in geometry, examples have been employed. There is a serious deficiency in the explanation given in the preceding chapter of the way in which Kant holds that metaphysical principles can be verified. Few examples have been given. This defect will be remedied in the present chapter and in the two ensuing chapters.
