This in turn gives allowance to make claims in the practical, civil condition—claims against others regarding property that go beyond the merely intelligible domain of principles and ends, to actual situations and events. But only in the civil condition can these claims be made, and only under the condition of a civil society can these claims take place. This corresponds to the objective judgment that is synthetic a priori both subjectively and objectively sufficient , for all parties subject to the civil condition are under obligation to make claims against another in respect of property.

My claim is this: the recursive condition of raising intelligible possession to practical reality in the civil. Flikschuh, with Kant, rejects historical and temporal possession arguments arguments based on prior occupation but favours original possession arguments.

Kant and Modern Political Philosophy by Katrin Flikschuh

The issue of communal ownership on the part of nomads, which has been canvassed by many scholars e. It is probably best not to consider this ownership at all, since this already seems to imply the conditions of intelligible possession and civility. See Kant, DR , 6: I shall demonstrate this in the following section. In the Vienna Logic as elsewhere, Kant distinguishes amongst 3 modes of holding- to-be-true, and these in turn from truth.

There is one grade of objective holding-to-be-true, or truth, which entails subjective sufficiency.

The Life & Work of Immanuel Kant

In the experiential premise, the settler selects an object of her liking choice and subjects this to the claim of rightful possession. In opining, I make a claim toward knowledge objective sufficiency.

The subjective nature of belief limits my claim to the condition in which I find myself. It also concerns conditions of duty and obligation: if I am under certain obligations but not others owing to the juridical condition in which I find myself, I am limited to sufficiency of judgment in respect of that condition, but not others. In regards my practical belief, I have apodeictic certainty.

The appeal here is to a concept or condition of intelligible possession, which is an assertoric judgment. Indeed, it is apodeictic as it is a practical belief in as much as the settler declares herself for the truth. Kant, KrV , B This necessity is subjectively but still only comparatively sufficient if I do not know of any other conditions at all under which the end could be attained, but it is sufficient absolutely and for everyone if I know with certainty that no one else can know of any other conditions that lead to the proposed end.

However, the claim that she is to make someone convinced of her belief remains hypothetical as it depends on the other sharing her moral sentiments, which is precisely what is lacking in the case of the nomad. In knowing, I obtain objective and subjective sufficiency.

“Classics of Political Science”

This of course is truth in its nominal definition. Formal conditions for truth are conditions of non- contradictoriness; transcendental conditions for truth are agreement with the object or appearance. This possibility seems at least superficially compatible with what Flikschuh is calling the practical realisability condition, in which the intelligible possession of objects is made possible under a further rule, or civil condition.

This gives rise to the corollary; the moral maxim that the settler ought to enter into the civil condition.

Kant and Modern Political Philosophy

In order for a subjective and objectively sufficient holding-to-be true, in other words, the settler must be able to extend the intelligible possession of objects itself a condition of her rightful possession of objects to a civil condition, in which all are able to participate in the intelligible possession of objects. For while a settler can certainly make and does make the subjective claim that it holds necessarily for her, she cannot convince others of this without also presupposing that they have the same moral sentiment as her.

She would have to convince the nomads on the basis of their shared moral sentiment regarding intelligible possession, the civil condition, and the duty of state entrance. But of course, and as Flikschuh carefully argues, this is precisely what is in contention.
