By way of a close analysis of the B-Deduction, Adam Dickerson makes the distinctive claim that the Deduction is crucially concerned with the problem of making intelligible the unity possessed by complex representations - a problem that is the representationalist parallel of the semantic problem of the unity of the proposition.

Kant then argues that such spontaneity can retain its objectivity – that is, can generate a representation genuinely deserving to be called 'cognition' – only if the synthesis is determined solely by the essential features of the subject qua cognising discursive mind, and not by any contingent features of the subject's psychology. the cognising discursive mind is essentially a judging mind, and therefore the. spontaneous synthesis must be governed by rules having their source in the essential structure of judgment – that is, by the categories.

However, Dickerson's aim in Kant on Representation and Objectivity is in one sense modest. He frequently refers to his interpretation of Kant's theory of representation as merely a "hy-pothesis" that he thinks can "make good sense" of the B-Deduc-tion

However, Dickerson's aim in Kant on Representation and Objectivity is in one sense modest. He frequently refers to his interpretation of Kant's theory of representation as merely a "hy-pothesis" that he thinks can "make good sense" of the B-Deduc-tion. Dickerson is attempting neither to argue that the Kantian interpretation presented is philosophically sound nor, more sur-prisingly, to argue for the architectonic significance of the analy-sis

Along the way he discusses most of the key themes in Kant's theory of knowledge, including the nature of thought and representation, the notion of objectivity, and the way in which the mind structures our experience of the world.

For Dickerson, Kant is a representationalist. Representations are the immediate objects of our awareness. However, imposing this interpretation appears incompatible with the objectivity of cognition. However, we cognize objects like trees neither by inferring those objects as the causes of representations nor by constructing them out of representations. The interpretation could be a fantasy; and even if we in fact use categories to interpret experience, what justifies that use as objective?
