    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;This essay investigates the transformation of the faculty of understanding in Kant&amp;rsquo;s &lt;em&gt;Transition from Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science to Physics&lt;/em&gt; drafts found in &lt;em&gt;Opus postumum&lt;/em&gt;. I argue that in fascicles X and XI Kant implicitly reverses the architectonic order of sensibility and understanding. Without an account of this reversal, Kant&amp;rsquo;s critique of Isaac Newton&amp;rsquo;s conception of phenomena and the so called &lt;em&gt;Selbstsetzungslehre&lt;/em&gt; (doctrine of self-positing) in fascicle VII fall apart. I argue that what is at stake is a challenge Kant makes to his own presuppositions and a challenge to the Kantian philosopher who wishes to stay with a strictly &amp;lsquo;critical&amp;rsquo; Kant.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
