3 The regress argument and its solution: heautonomy and the a priori principle of reflective judgement as a subjective principle In the Preface to the third Critique Kant argues that there must be an a priori principle for the faculty of judgement. As usual, Kant holds that where there exists a standard of appraisal, something ‘necessarily’ and ‘universally required’, there must be an a priori concept involved. ‘Ought’ comes not from ‘is’. In everyday life we engage in criticism of one another’s judgements.

For Kant the nature of human judgement always functions in this way in the empirical sphere. In general, intuitions are brought under concepts in judgements. 16 So the choice of which concepts are most suitable or relevant in a given context must be left to the faculty of judgement to discern. Neither reason nor the understanding can dictate how best to conceptualize and order objects in nature by means of empirical concepts. 17 It is merely to say that, in any given empirical judgement, reflective and determinative elements of judgement are simultaneously at work.
