After these supplemental thoughts on time in Kant, we reconstructed the context in which we are asking about time, so that we might be completely clear about how we are proceeding. To begin with, we were speaking about nature, but then we distinguished history from it because we essentially understand history on the basis of time.

Nevertheless, in intuition I represent a singular This, while in a concept I represent something that applies to many things, something that is nonintuitive and universal. Intuition is further characterized by the fact that in it I sense or perceive, while in a concept I think and construct creatively and spontaneously. For the Kantian way of discussing time, this means that every individual thing given to me in my mental processes is determined by time. I perceive the processes of my thinking, feeling, and speaking only in the succession of time.
