Perspective/scope of the conference. In his definition of transcendental philosophy Kant postulates shift (turn) from studying of objects to studying of [aprioristic] mode of cognition [CPR, B25] as «the altered method of our thinking» [CPR, BVXIII]. Such transcendental turn, on the one hand, leads to new metaphysics, but, on the other hand, the shift to studying of "mode of our cognition" predetermines influence of a transcendentalism on contemporary development of epistemology, cognitive sciences, and artificial intelligence.
