There is, then, no such object perfectly corresponding to what we would entitle "tree," based upon our experience. Modern quantum theory tells us this, and Kant prefigured this theory, by positing these two forms of intuition within subjectivity, and by insisting that the object in-itself cannot be known. It should be noted, of course, Kant's work does not exist in a vacuum; he had taken cues for these ideas from those who came before him, such as Berkeley, Liebniz, Spinoza, Locke, Descartes, and so on, back through the illustrious history of ideas.
At the outset, the reader of the Critique will no doubt note the somewhat strange, and certainly tidy, appearance of the arrangements and various tables, which are found throughout the analytic, as well as in other parts of the work. Since Kant uses the four groupings over and over and over, we should assume, beyond a certain organizational zealotry, they must have been very important to him, and to some extent must contribute to the full appreciation of his enterprise. However we may slice them up, though, it really matters very little toward our purpose of gaining an understanding of Kant's philosophical work in the Critique.
Let us call these representations "images" of the sycamore tree. The faculty of understanding then loads these images into the numbered sections of the list, as so many simple entries, all which in their train, detail the moments of representing the tree, just as it has been experienced. The list of these images, though is still rather long and unrelated to the rest of my experience, so my imagination will have to relate them to other representations by setting out certain sequences of these representations, perhaps several of such sequences, which are related to one another; this is determined on basis of the manifold of intuition, or collection of 57 KANT AND SUBJECTIVITY experience, which is provided, of course.
