Deleuze and the Kantian Problematic
Unformatted Document Text:  17 In his book on Kant, Deleuze tracks Kant’s elucidation and justification of common sense across the three Critiques. 16 In each Critique, Deleuze shows, Kant specifies a form of the sensus communis that corresponds to one of our interests as rational beings. In the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant identifies the form of logical common sense (sensus communis logicus) that corresponds to our natural interest in knowledge. In logical common sense, there is a proportion between our three active cognitive faculties and our passive faculty of sensibility: the understanding legislates over objects of nature (through the categories); reason reasons (by forming regulative ideas); and the imagination synthesizes and schematizes the phenomena presented by our sensibility. In the Critique of Practical Reason, Kant identifies the form of moral common sense that corresponds to our natural interest in freedom. In moral common sense, there is also a proportion between our three active cognitive faculties and our faculty of sensibility: reason legislates over things in themselves (through the moral law); the understanding judges and symbolizes (through the typic of pure practical reason); and the imagination works upon our sensibility in order for the sensible world to appear fit to receive the effect of the supersensible (through aesthetic judgment). In the Critique of Judgment, Kant identifies the form of aesthetic common sense (sensus communis aestheticus) that corresponds to our natural interest in feeling pleasure before the beautiful and the sublime. In aesthetic common sense, there is not, as one might expect, an exact proportion between the faculties with the imagination as the legislative faculty. This is because the faculty of feeling does not have its own its domain – either the noumenal or phenomenal world – over which to legislate. In aesthetic common sense there is, rather, a free and indeterminate accord between the imagination and the understanding.

In his book on Kant, Deleuze tracks Kant’s elucidation and justification of common sense
across the three Critiques.

In each Critique, Deleuze shows, Kant specifies a form of the sensus
communis that corresponds to one of our interests as rational beings. In the Critique of Pure
Reason, Kant identifies the form of logical common sense (sensus communis logicus) that
corresponds to our natural interest in knowledge. In logical common sense, there is a proportion
between our three active cognitive faculties and our passive faculty of sensibility: the
understanding legislates over objects of nature (through the categories); reason reasons (by
forming regulative ideas); and the imagination synthesizes and schematizes the phenomena
presented by our sensibility. In the Critique of Practical Reason, Kant identifies the form of
moral common sense that corresponds to our natural interest in freedom. In moral common
sense, there is also a proportion between our three active cognitive faculties and our faculty of
sensibility: reason legislates over things in themselves (through the moral law); the
understanding judges and symbolizes (through the typic of pure practical reason); and the
imagination works upon our sensibility in order for the sensible world to appear fit to receive the
effect of the supersensible (through aesthetic judgment). In the Critique of Judgment, Kant
identifies the form of aesthetic common sense (sensus communis aestheticus) that corresponds to
our natural interest in feeling pleasure before the beautiful and the sublime. In aesthetic common
sense, there is not, as one might expect, an exact proportion between the faculties with the
imagination as the legislative faculty. This is because the faculty of feeling does not have its own
its domain – either the noumenal or phenomenal world – over which to legislate. In aesthetic
common sense there is, rather, a free and indeterminate accord between the imagination and the
understanding.
