There are six steps to transcendental apperception:
- All experience is the succession of a variety of contents (an idea taken from David Hume).
- To be experienced at all, the successive data must be combined or held together in a unity for consciousness.
- Unity of experience therefore implies a unity of self.
- The unity of self is as much an object of experience as anything is.
- Therefore experience both of the self and its objects rests on acts of synthesis that, because they are the conditions of any experience, are not themselves experienced.
- These prior syntheses are made possible by the categories. Categories allow us to synthesize the self and the objects.
