Going beyond its meaning as a delimitation, we defend that the notion of criticism allows Kant to systematically articulate different fields and interests of knowledge. In part I, we note that modern criticism, even before Kant, expands to several sciences, creating a dispute over the limits of this supposed art. Mixed with its technical criteria, the dispute also favors the idea of the plublic as a judge. More focused on the three Critiques, part II characterizes how the answer to a school problem has matured, addressing both to the source of a priori and to the subjectivity of a modern world. In the light of these two parts, we draw a concept of criticism for Kant that, without neglecting his formalism, is closer to a historical and social perspective of his (and still our) time.
