KANT A FUNKCIONÁLNÍ TEORIE PREDIKACE
Kant and the functional theory of predication
Languages of publication
This paper focuses on the roots of a functional theory of predication, which is represented primary by Frege and Russell. After a brief presentation of the theory of Frege, the author concentrates on the philosophical motivation of this theory. The example of the influence of F. H. Bradley on Russell’s conception of the categorical judgements shows a common epistemological position of both authors, which he recognizes also in Frege. The point of the article is to find common grounds in Kant noetics, especially in his conception of synthetic judgement. Replacement of the problematic Kant’s notion of transcendental schema by the functional application subsequently allowed flourishing of the theory. In conclusion, the author outlines potential problems associated with the challenge of philosophical assumptions on which this theory is based.
