Obgleich die "Kritik der reinen Vernunft" nicht durchgängig als Grundlegung einer kritischen Metaphysik bedacht und anerkannt wird, entspricht diese Auslegung den ureigenen Intentionen Kants, die durch die verwickelte Interpretationsgeschichte aus dem Blickfeld gerückt waren und danach additionally neu entdeckt werden mußten. Auch um dieses Zieles willen beschränken sich die meisten Beiträge nicht auf die jeweils zu kommentierenden Passagen, sondern weisen immer wieder auf Zusammenhänge im Gesamttext der Kritik der reinen Vernunft, auf Anknüpfungspunkte in früheren und späteren Werken Kants, in seinen Briefen, im handschriftlichen Nachlaß und überdies bei seinen Zeitgenossen und in der älteren und neueren Philosophiegeschichte.
