This chapter penetrates to the general solution which Kant offers as to how any metaphysical principles whatever may be verified. Kant contrasts the manner in which metaphysical principles can be verified with the way in which geometrical judgments are verified. No metaphysical principles can be verified without taking account of what is found of portions of space or time by representing them in pure intuition. Kant holds that a judgment by which we get such knowledge is verified a priori by representing in pure intuition the configuration of which we are thinking in the judgment. Kant argues that metaphysics can enlarge our knowledge only by informing us of the properties which things generally must have in order to enable knowledge of them to be obtained by the categories. Metaphysical principles can then be verified only by recourse to conditions of obtaining empirical knowledge of things generally. Empirical knowledge is obtained only by making out the truth of empirical judgments.
