Resumo

The word Selbstgebärung occurs only once in the Critique of Pure Reason. Likewise, it does not seem to appear in any other text of Kant, and no other reference is to be found that precedes this occurrence. Hence, I assume that Selbstgebärung is a neologism of the philosopher's making, and that it may have resulted from the condensation of two terms whose mutual vicinity had long been established in the mystical-theosophical field. Throughout the present study, I shall examine the origin of the expression, the philological difficulties inherent to its understanding, and the elements pertaining to a self-generation of the understanding.
