Subjectivity not Intellectual Intuition

Interestingly, Houlgate fails to even mention what I take to be one of Hegel’s central criticisms of Kant’s position—viz.┬áthat the conception of reality as intellectually intuited is incompatible with the conception of reality as possibly thought.

For Houlgate, Hegel’s problem is that intuition and the categories are taken by Kant to be subjective, and are so partially based on an insufficiently argued position that the intellect is discursive in nature. Houlgate identifies another major problem in the fact that the derivation of the categories from the ‘I’ renders them irreducibly subjective.
