Summary/Abstract: The paper sketches out an approach to an analysis of Kant’s specific notion of ‘Kraft’ based on the influxionist model of his Critical metaphysics. The point of reference of all provided sets of textual evidence is the triple division of the predicament ‘possibility’ outlined by Kant for his course on anthropology. My aim is to provide a sufficient reason to claim that this distinction between Fähigkeit, Vermögen, and Kraft exemplifies Kant’s ‘suspicious divisions in pure philosophy’and thus can be regarded as a synthetic partitioning of his Critical project. For this reason, I also contend that through the dynamic trichotomy in question we could recognize the ‘keystone of the whole edifice’of Kant’s philosophy.
