The aim of this paper is to reconstruct Kant's theory of error in theoretical and practical terms, not only from a moral-psychological perspective, but also from the broader perspective of his transcendental philosophy. Kant's theory of error will be interpreted as a central part of his transcendental philosophy, insofar as it is related to his doctrine of (theoretical and practical) reason. For it is precisely Kant's theory of dialectic as the "logic of appearance" (KrV, B 86) that deals with the reasons that concern theoretical error as well as moral misconduct and that traces theoretical and practical error back to a common root: the phenomenon of rational self-deception.
