The goal of this study is to reveal to the reader of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason a course he might choose to follow through the text in his journey of interpretation--if, that is, the reader is content to accept as his (temporary) destination the chapter on "schematism." It is here suggested that this chapter can only be understood as belonging to one overall argument which begins as early as the Preface and concludes much further on in the Analytic of Principles (if it can be said to "begin" or "conclude" in the first Critique at all). This study presents the overall argument and offers a "making-sense-of" the schematism as one of its necessary steps.
