Example text

We may thus go on to the third group of judgements and categories, that of relation. This time, the table is: Judgements Categories Categorical Of inherence & subsistence Becoming within Being (substantia et accidens) Hypothetical Of causality and dependence Becoming (cause and effect) Disjunctive Of community--(reciprocity between the agent and patient) For the first two Kantian terms, the match with our terms is, on this occasion, obvious. Becoming within Being may very well be understood as inherence.

In Romanian, there is a nice example of impersonal judgement, as contained in the saying “vremea vremuieşte”

In this categorial group of the “how it is” of a thing, the problematic of Being fully emerges into the light. Perhaps in the other groups as well, those of quantity, quality and relation, it should have been placed directly in the light. Whereas the final group was the expression of the “how it is” of a thing, the first three could be those of the “what it is” of a thing, thus they too are an echo of the metaphysical terms. And it would then remain to be seen if they are indeed three independent groups – quality, quantity, relation – and not a unitary triad in some kind of dialectical movement, one of Being.
