In the Critique of Pure Reason Kant argues in various ways that the knowledge of transcendent objects sought by traditional metaphysics is an impossibility, an ‘illusion'. The term ‘transcendent objects’ is understood by Kant to refer to the indeterminate domain of the object in general, to objects (or ‘things’) in themselves and to the three objects to which traditional metaphysicians mainly directed their attention, namely God, the soul and the world as a whole. The purpose of the workshop is to reexamine Kant's conclusion and the ways in which it might be challenged, so considering afresh the problem of knowledge of transcendent objects.
