Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In a not often quoted letter to LH Jakob, in 1787 Kant briefly and clearly summarizes the relationship between ontology and the concepts of space and time (in a non-specific sense), as it can not be found anywhere else in his works. The critical introduction about which Kant speaks in his letter to Jacob seems to be identifiable with the role of ontology as an analysis of pure reason. However, this position, which is very firmly linked to the method of metaphysics by reference to Baumgarten, opens up the problem of the nature of space and time and its relation to the categories in the new meaning of ontology. But this is only one aspect of the great tradition of interpretation, which since the first decades of the twentieth century has emphasized the perspective of supplementing epistemology and the theory of science in the construction of experience. The renewed interest in recent years, an ontology in the Critique of Pure Reason (though in it the term is present only three times) and in critical philosophy in general, has taken on the role of space and time in the Limiting this doctrine oriented. That is also the aim of this article.
