Kant's error is in his belief that the concept in some measure constitutes the content of the object known, but any theory which posits a structural contribution of the knower to the known is one that fails to properly distinguish between the manifestative and significative relations within the sign.
Manifestative being exhibits the attribute of universality proper to scientific judgment, but the manifestation of this property in the object does not leave us with a mere nominalistic description of the real.(57) For although it is the object as known rather than the real as such which is the term of scientific cognition, nonetheless, that for which the concept substitutes serves as the ultimate term.(58) It is therefore upon this more fundamental significative relation that the objectivity of science ultimately rests.
(48) In some parts of his discussion, Poinsot does not always distinguish between representative and manifestative being (for example, CPT I, 646a29-38), though he always makes it clear that the "indirect" aspect of the sign relation, whereby the sign is related to a cognitive power, is properly called manifestative.
