The main purpose of this paper is to show that Kant's transcendental philosophy is tacitly laden with the structures of modern modal thought. More exactly, the surprising parallelism which seems to exist between Kant's manner of defining necessity (and, on this basis, nomicity) and the modern approaches of the same concepts in the frame of "possible worlds philosophy" is stressed. A new interpretation of the Categorical Imperative is also offered on this basis.
