"Critique of pure reason" isn't just a book by Immanuel Kant, it's also a 1987 essay on AI by Drew McDermott.  https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1467-8640.1987.tb00183.x 

From Shirky (2003): "[they] greatly overestimate the value of deductive reasoning (a persistent theme in Artificial Intelligence projects generally.) The great popularizer of this error was Arthur Conan Doyle, whose Sherlock Holmes stories..."

"...have done more damage to people's understanding of human intelligence than anyone other than Rene Descartes. Doyle has convinced generations of readers that what seriously smart people do when they think is to arrive at inevitable conclusions by linking antecedent facts."
