In the light of what people have learned about the schemata, they may be tempted to suppose that Kant's argument in the Analytic of Principles takes the form of a series of syllogisms in which the transcendental schema is the middle term. Kant's doctrine rests upon two main foundations, firstly the forms of judgement, and secondly the transcendental synthesis of space and time. It is possible that the second may stand, even if the first has been undermined. The transcendental schemata are not deduced from the forms of judgement, but from the nature of time. Kant's doctrine, if we view it as a whole, has little or nothing of that perversity commonly attributed to him by his critics. His fundamental contention that judgement as such requires a synthesis of the given manifold is perfectly sound, and it is not unreasonable to suppose that judgement as such requires certain definite kinds of synthesis.
