... Carson (1997), and Michael Friedman (1992, 2000). 3 Kant distinguishes between two notions of magnitude, quantum and quan- titas. The Latin suggests that the two are related as relatively concrete to more abstract, and this is how Kant understands them. In the Axioms of Intuition, Kant provides...
