Kant’s brain explodes

I’ve been coming across increased references to Kant’s last (and unfinished) work; the Opus Postumum; which seems to have the most provokative of suggestions in his whole system; for instance:

1. Kant accepts Lavoisier’s natural chemistry over Stahl’s phlogistical chemistry (1790s)
2. Kant’s views on the foundations of natural science seem to have very wide implications; such as the purported unity of reason in particular to bridge between the practical and theoretical domains of philosophy

What is interesting is that I thought of Kant to accomodate for these two views; and, perhaps he does…I need to find a copy of the Postumum!
