The Legislations of Reason and Judgement What kind of `sense' might be appropriate to reason? Recall that in the list of faculties, Kant asserts that the proper legislative area for reason is not cognition of nature, but free or pure desire. Reason determines desire to follow practical (that is, moral) law, and to act towards the Good. Thus, Kant's Critique of Practical Reason attempts to discover the transcendental conditions for our practical reason.
