The possibility that one can use Kant's Critique of Judgement to establish a political discourse that is consistent with the existing normative function designed for aesthetics and teleology would also allow us to create a schema missing from judgement, since aesthetics and teleology are subject, object of judgement. To pursue this task, one return's to the incomplete final work of Arendt, 'On Judgement' in The Life of the Mind to create anew the premise (promise?) of her final opus. It shows that there can be an effective third direction to politics that is neither empirical nor absolutist (Ideological). This thesis deal's with three, real or perceived, problems: (1) The Kantian system itself is unable to deal with the empirical world. (2) The system is not internally consistent. (3) The system will not respond to create the necessary normative functions in political discussion--the resulting new political system will not have the necessary moral normative functions to establish a system of discourse
