RICHARDSON, John. Nietzsche and transcendental argument. Kriterion [online]. 2013, vol.54, n.128, pp.287-305. ISSN 0100-512X.

My plan is to examine Nietzsche's view of (what is I think) the most characteristically Kantian kind of argument, what's now often called 'transcendental argument'. I understand this as an argument in which a concept or principle or value is justified as a 'condition of the possibility' of something indisputable (or indispensable). I will look at Nietzsche's critique of this pattern of argument in Kant, but also at the ways he still uses such arguments himself, in all three of the sectors of Kant's critique: theoretical, practical, aesthetic.

Keywords : Kant; Nietzsche; transcendental arguments; possibility-conditions; life-conditions.
