Theory of Definitions in Kant's Theoretical Philosophy

Student: Maksim Evstigneev

Supervisor: Petr V. Rezvykh

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Philosophy (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

This work is a reconstruction and an interpretation of Kant's theory of definitions in theoretical philosophy. I suppose that Kant had an implicit theory of definitions and that this theory plays a significant role in his theoretical philosophy. Kant claims that mathematics is the only theoretical science that is capable of genuine definitions. In contrast another theoretical sciences and disciplines can not provide genuine definitions. Thus, the aim of my work is an interpretation of Kant's theoretical philosophy, philosophy of logic and mathematics that can make sence of the mentioned claims.
