Dissertation

My dissertation deals with the nature of space in Kant's philosophy. Some of Kant's theory of matter and some of Kant's positions on natural science in general changed during the conception of the Critique of Judgment. I ask whether changes in his philosophy during that time are grounded in a change in his aesthetic theory or can be traced to independent developments in his natural philosophy. Ultimately, the goal is to understand the notion of space and whether his aesthetic theory entails a significant change in it.
