Abstract/Artist's Statement

The essay considers the role of Heidegger’s interpretation of disclosure in phenomenological method. It asks how the transcendental problem of validity can be grasped prior to metaphysical formalisms and probed in terms of phenomenal structure. We undertake a methodological deconstruction of the synthetic a priori concept of causation in Kant, followed by a re-interpretation suggesting that the Kantian synthesis presents a crucial structure for interrogating the problem of validity. Finally, we set forth a notion of transcendental genesis cored on the relation of synthesis to horizonal temporality.
