Revelations of a Transcendental Subject

(Namely, Plato's ghost)

Background: "Transcendental subject" is Kant's term for, more or less, the self.

Rosalind Krauss in 1978 —

"To get inside the systems of this work,
whether LeWitt's or Judd's or Morris's,
is precisely to enter
a world without a center,
a world of substitutions and transpositions 
nowhere legitimated by the revelations
of a transcendental subject. This is the strength
of this work, its seriousness, and its claim to modernity."
