Summary/Abstract: The goal of this issue is to show the implicit ontological basis of Imanuel Kant's transcendental philosophy. An important distinction is drawn, between three concentric realms of sense-datum. Each one has its own constitutive principles. The first realm is bound up with the pure natural matter, which is functioning under mechanical laws. The second, which is more concrete and subordinated to the natural whole of the universe, is the realm of the living matter. It has its own law, which may be named „teleological". And the third realm is the realm of rational living beings, which is subordinated to specific laws, which Kant names „pneumatic". These laws form an intelligible community beyond our sensible world. This distinction, which makes us able to introduce the concept of „rational living being" is used to show how this „rational living being" (e. g. the man) is at the same time phenomenal, as far as it is „living", and noumenal, as far as it is „rational".
