The concept of “Transcendental” is the most fundamental concept of Kant’s theoretical philosophy. Hence, understanding Kant’s epistemology is based on understanding the meaning, the use, and the function of this concept in his view. Regarding some instances of the concept of “Transcendental” in Kant’s Critique of pure reason, we will try in this paper, by using a descriptive-analytic method, to show that in what sense and how Kant’s theoretical philosophy, unlike all the “Transcendent-centered” rationalistic and empiricist philosophies before him , is a “Transcendental-centred” philosophy. To do this, we will try, by presenting Kant’s analysis of the logical structure and function of the judgments of understanding, to illustrate the presence of the concept of “Transcendental” in Kant’s epistemology in the form of a series of non-empirical elements, especially the element of “the unity of pure self-consciousness”.
