The paper sets out to question received ideas about the distance that separates Kantian critique and Hegelian dialectic. The first part examines the Antinomy from the Critique of Pure Reason, the second part, the chapter on Determinate Being from the Science of Logic. It is argued that central to both philosophical projects is a conception of 'bounds' as enabling conditions for rational thinking. For both Kant and Hegel, the idea of a self-controlling procedure is the key for resolving the problem of the limitations of human cognitive capacities, whilst also describing an ambitious role for philosophical reflection
