Kant’s view on causality - the principle of causality and its proofs- are based on debates addressed by Hume who believed that the notion of cause is fictitious and illusory. Criticizing Hume’s view of causality, Kant attempts to develope a coherent and comprehensive perspective that explains how theory of causality was born and applied in human cognition. Understanding kant’s theory of causality depends on understanding the other elements of his philosophy.
According to most of his commentators and interpreters, to grasp the causality theory in Kantian philosophical system one has to understand the transcedental dialectic in Kant’s critique of pure reason - which is not an easy task to do. In this article we attempt to give a simple account of transcedental deduction to the extent it concerns to the causality debate. It should be noted that Kant’s thoughts on causality have evolved through different phases. Anyway, this article deals only with the era after the critique of pure reason.
