Abstract

Kant is well-known for spelling out a remarkably strict conception of natural science, or “proper natural science”, as he calls it in the Preface of the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science (MAN, 4:468). A proper natural science, he argues, is any body of cognition that is systematically unified, ordered by rational principles, and known with apodictic certainty.
