Kant says in the B-deduction that the representation of the ‘I think’ is an ‘act of spontaneity’, and must be able to accompany all representations of the subject (B132). Commentators have puzzled over how the ‘act of spontaneity’ should be interpreted. One key debate here concerns the question of whether the involvement of this act of spontaneity allows the cognizing subject to bring forth a causality not reducible to prior causes.
