In this paper, I examine the nature of self-consciousness in the writings of Kant, particularly in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Anthropology, and the interaction between these two. This work looks at the connection between Kant’s notion of a logically simple subject and the activity of synthesis. From the implications of this analysis I ask whether there are multiple syntheses in the Kantian system and what sort of significance Kant’s system gives to embodiment. Throughout I consider the significance of our use of ‘I’ as the most intimate referral to oneself.
