This is a tricky notion to understand, involving as it does mysterious faculties such as the "transcendental imagination," which is discussed in the most difficult section of the book, the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories. We will begin our examination of the construction of objects with intuitions. And once again we run straightaway into a puzzling situation. For it is to intuition that objects are given to the mind. Yet in order that there be a priori synthetic judgments true of those objects, the obejcts must be constructed . The solution is to distinguish between the form and matter of intuition. It is the matter of intuition which is given to the mind, while the mind supplies the forms of intuition. The matter is a "manifold" that
