“… we can summarize the demand that reason makes on the cognitive faculty in three questions, which are directed to the three cognitive faculties:
What do I want? (asks understanding)
What does it matter? (asks the power of judgment)
What comes of it? (asks reason).
Minds differ greatly in their ability to answer all three of these questions.“
— Kant, Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View (1798), AA VII: 227
