Notably, and , both former students of Popper, have produced novel attempts at such a synthesis.When a possible or similar relation between phenomena is investigated, such as, for example, whether a proposed remedy is effective in treating a disease, that is, at least to some extent and for some patients, the hypothesis that a relation exists cannot be examined the same way one might examine a proposed new law of nature: in such an investigation a few cases in which the tested remedy shows no effect do not falsify the hypothesis.

This suggestion is not developed in any detail in Salmon's paper, andit is not easy to see how it can be made to work. We noted above thatstatistical relevance relationships often greatly underdetermine thecausal relationships among a set of variables. What reason is there tosuppose that appealing to the notion of a causal process, in Salmon'ssense, will always or even usually remove this indeterminacy? We alsonoted that the notion of a causal process cannot capture fine grainednotions of relevance between properties, that there can be causalrelevance between properties instances of which (at least at the levelof description at which they are characterized) are not linked byspatio-temporally continuous or transference of conserved quantities,and that properties can be so linked without being causally relevant(recall the chalk mark that is transmitted from one billiard ball toanother). As long as it is possible (and why should it not be?) fordifferent causal claims to imply the same facts about statisticalrelevance relationships and for these claims to differ in ways thatcannot be fully cashed out in terms of Salmon's notions of causalprocesses and interactions, this new proposal will fail as well.

The addition of such transcendental content turns the form of judgment into a category. This content is a feature of the forms of intuition, space and time, which are called upon whenthe power to judge sets out to unify a manifold of intuition (B128–9).The categories — more precisely, the versions of the categoriesthat are schematized for our way of cognizing (A137/B176ff) — are thusgenerated from the forms of judgment in the process of synthesizingintuitions by the addition of spatial and temporal content. Forexample, generated from the categorical form of judgment by theaddition of such content is the category of substance, and generatedfrom the hypothetical form of judgment in this way is the category ofcause. (For beings possessing the power of understanding but withdifferent forms of intuition, the categories would be schematizeddifferently from ours.)
