Or, finally, we can change the first three. But the fact remains: becoming, becoming within Being and Being all find their echo in the Kantian categories. Here is the complete table, changed as we have been suggesting (see right): On what does this correspondence of the categories with the three proposed terms depend? It cannot be mere coincidence. It is difficult to ascribe the imposed match to us: it was very much apparent with what ease each of the ontological terms could be assigned to “its” place.
And, just as the category of causality results from a hypothetical judgement, with the former expressing the hypothetical relation in itself (if you posit the cause you will obtain the effect), so too mere becoming, with its instability and flux, is the chain of the infinite successive conditioning of one term by another, a progression without beginning or end, in which each term is conditioned and at the same time conditions. It is only through the uninterrupted action of the hypothetical (hypothesis), of placing one term beneath another, of sustaining one term with the crutch of another, that this becoming can make sense, a becoming which does not really “hold”, but is nevertheless not a collapse, because it is “self-sustaining”.
It is as though the Kantian categories – predicaments, as opposed to their derivatives, named by him “praedicabilia” – themselves now become a sort of praedicabilia in comparison to the deeper, more unitary, categorial functions that they might reveal: becoming, becoming within Being, Being. But this cannot be accepted, at least at first sight, by anybody who knows his Kant. How can one elevate a concept as “impure” as becoming to the rank of category? Or even more so, to elevate it to supra-category?
