  "description": "<p>This essay investigates the transformation of the faculty of understanding in Kant&rsquo;s <em>Transition from Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science to Physics</em> drafts found in <em>Opus postumum</em>. 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&rsquo;s critique of Isaac Newton&rsquo;s conception of phenomena and the so called <em>Selbstsetzungslehre</em> (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 &lsquo;critical&rsquo; Kant.</p>",
