    About "Immanuel Kant William Hastie"

    1. Immanuel Kant William Hastie

      Immanuel Kant was an 18th century philosopher from K nigsberg, Prussia now Kaliningrad, Russia He s regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of modern Europe of the late Enlightenment His most important work is The Critique of Pure Reason, an investigation of reason itself It encompasses an attack on traditional metaphysics epistemology, highlights his own contribution to these areas Other main works of his maturity are The Critique of Practical Reason, which is about ethics, The Critique of Judgment, about esthetics teleology.Pursuing metaphysics involves asking questions about the ultimate nature of reality Kant suggested that metaphysics can be reformed thru epistemology He suggested that by understanding the sources limits of human knowledge we can ask fruitful metaphysical questions He asked if an object can be known to have certain properties prior to the experience of that object He concluded that all objects that the mind can think about must conform to its manner of thought Therefore if the mind can think only in terms of causality which he concluded that it does then we can know prior to experiencing them that all objects we experience must either be a cause or an effect However, it follows from this that it s possible that there are objects of such a nature that the mind cannot think of them, so the principle of causality, for instance, cannot be applied outside experience hence we cannot know, for example, whether the world always existed or if it had a cause So the grand questions of speculative metaphysics are off limits, but the sciences are firmly grounded in laws of the mind Kant believed himself to be creating a compromise between the empiricists the rationalists The empiricists believed that knowledge is acquired thru experience alone, but the rationalists maintained that such knowledge is open to Cartesian doubt and that reason alone provides us with knowledge Kant argues, however, that using reason without applying it to experience will only lead to illusions, while experience will be purely subjective without first being subsumed under pure reason Kant s thought was very influential in Germany during his lifetime, moving philosophy beyond the debate between the rationalists empiricists The philosophers Fichte, Schelling, Hegel and Schopenhauer saw themselves as correcting and expanding Kant s system, thus bringing about various forms of German Idealism Kant continues to be a major influence on philosophy to this day, influencing both Analytic and Continental philosophy.

    2. Un libro arduo pero interesante. Se trata de un compilado de textos de Immanuel Kant con algunas notas críticas e introducción que facilitan la lectura. Kant no es fácil de entender, ni por su pensamiento, ni por su modo de escribir. Su estilo de escritura se parece al crecimiento de una de esas plantas que trepan muros, envuelven árboles, rocas, se ramifican, forman entramados indescifrables y, sin embargo, crecen con absoluta eficiencia hasta cubrirlo todo. En este libro, el sigiloso discu [...]


    3. The first 3/4 of the book is simply a justification of property and it is based on the premise that individual property ownership is innate in us while communal behavior is an aberration that only makes sense when people begin banding together to protect their individual property rights. How do we know this is true? Kant offers no support as he believes the truth to be self evident an assumption which seems to be the pitfall of philosophy. He acknowledges the fragility of his thesis later in the [...]


    4. Love the title of this book, and it is a short one if you want to read some Kant. If you want to get a bit more out of the book, don't read the intro until you finish the Kant section.
