Arises from the combination of the second . . " 10 These are regrettably terse, but taken together with the obvious implications of the modal categories themselves, they provide a suggestive basis for analysis. The critical reader will note immediately the disparity between the arrangement of modalities in the Table of Categories and the logical arrangement in my articulation, above, of what I understand to follow from Kant's own discussion of the Table of Judgments.

In confronting this question one hundred and fifty years after the death of its author, we have the advantage of a long perspective which ought to lend to our vision some measure of detachment. But before we can answer we must first clear away the narrower and more exclusive conception held by those enthusiastic Kantians who, considering Kant's framework the largest possible, try to fit everything into it. They identify the philosophy of Kant with the greater scheme. Are they rendering justice in this?

Before we close we shall endeavor to look ahead of him, which is to say, ahead of ourselves with the advantage of what we have learned from our study of him. Kant extended to his unborn followers all the courtesies of equivocation and thus guaranteed two sets of adherents whose vigorous conflicts have continued to elicit from all observers the recognition that his influence is still very much alive.
