References throughout follow the Academy edition, with an abbreviation and the page number of the relevant volume being cited; for the Critique of Pure Reason the standard practice of citing A / B for the 1781 and 1787 editions is followed. Unless otherwise noted (e.g., "The Dohna-Wundlacken Logic"), translations of quoted passages are my own.
1. Four such recent works focusing on the Critique of Judgment, or the primacy of practical reason, or on both, are: Paul Guyer's Kant and the Experience of Freedom: Essays on Aesthetics and Morality (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993); Rudolf A. Makkreel's Imagination and Interpretation in Kant: The Hermeneutical Import of the "Critique of Judgment" (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1990); Richard L. Velkley's Freedom and the End of Reason: On the Moral Foundations of Kant's Critical Philosophy (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1989); John H. Zammito's The Genesis of Kant's "Critique of Judgment" (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1992).

Thus the starting point for this inquiry coincides with the conclusion which Zammito draws in his discussion of "Beauty as the Symbol of Morality": "The philosophical significance of beauty, then, is that it symbolizes morality. Kant's whole discourse regarding aesthetics culminates in the primacy of practical reason" (291). Whereas Zammito makes a case that for Kant it is such a philosophical issue, that metaphysics must be secured (288), in this paper I am exploring just how far one can get by applying Kant's account of philosophical (or metaphysical) cognition to his statement.
