Kant's own account 4 is intelligible only in the light of his Axioms of Intuition, and it is obscured by the fact that he makes no reference to space. Thus he does not explain that intuitions must have homogeneity because they are spatial and temporal. His description of number is misleading; for he says that number is an idea which comprehends the successive addition of homogeneous units. 5 This would identify 'number* with 'counting' (unless he means that number is the idea which comprehends in a total the homogeneous units successively added).
