Instead of effective interventions, it seeks the preservation of a postulated natural perfection. Developmentalism's rich history is expressed in a literature extending over years. Its notable exponents include Jean Jacques Rousseau , John Dewey, and Jean Piaget; and its most recent expressions include "developmentally appropriate practice" and "constructivism. Today it impedes efforts to hold schools accountable for student academic achievement. The history of wealth concept and ways to achieve it for sustainable development.
Economics was initially studying ways and means of achieving wealth. The essence of wealth has changed dramatically in people's minds after the first and the second industrial revolutions. The world today is on the verge of the third industrial revolution according to Jeremy Rifkin, or, as it is called by many scientists, the new tenor of technology. In the history of any civilization comes the moment of a radical direction change for new prospects or endangered.
Not all civilizations were able to transform in time. However, in the past, the effects of civilizations collapse were limited in time, space, and never addressed the species. Currently, the high probability of temperature and planet geochemistry changes as a result of climate change can lead to mass extinction of animals, plants, and people. Humanity has the ability to transit into a stable post-carbon era in the middle of the century and to prevent catastrophic climate change.
Currently, sustainable development is the mechanism used to achieve the ultimate goal of any country, enterprise and human development, which is wealth. Under controlled sustainable development we understand the system unity of not only economic, social, environmental, but also resource, technological, institutional activities, as well as a permanent interaction between development and economic safety.
Haveria uma antropologia infantil na modernidade? The recent surge of scientific investigation into synaesthesia, ably reviewed by Hochel and Milan , is representative of an increasing recognition that our various sensory modalities are intimately interconnected rather than separate. The origin of these interconnections is the subject of an intriguing theory by Maurer and Maurer They suggest that all of us begin life as synaesthetes, with subsequent neural development reducing the connections among the senses.
We present some historical roots of the idea that human life begins with the senses intertwined. The influential 18th-century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau described an early theory of child development in his book Emile , hypothesizing that if "a child had at its birth the stature and strength of a man In this context, the assumption of many 20th-century scientists that the senses were largely separate appears to be an historical aberration.
Full Text Available This paper focuses on the reflection on the relationship between values and methodological principles of Outdoor Education and spatial and geographical education perspectives, especially in pre-school and primary school, which relates to the age between 3 and 10 years.
In Italy, however, there are still few experiences and they usually do not have a systematic and structural modality, but rather a temporarily and experimentally outdoor organization. In the first part, this paper focuses on the reasons that justify a particular attention to educational paths that favour outdoors activities, providing also a definition of outdoor education and highlighting its values.
It is also essential to understand that educational programs in open spaces, such as a forest or simply the schoolyard, surely offers the possibility to learn geographical situations. Therefore, the question that arises is how to finalize the best stimulus that the spatial location guarantees for the acquisition of knowledge, skills and abilities about space and geography.
Proving communal warfare among hunter-gatherers: The Quasi-Rousseauan error. Was human fighting always there, as old as our species? Or is it a late cultural invention, emerging after the transition to agriculture and the rise of the state, which began, respectively, only around ten thousand and five thousand years ago? Viewed against the life span of our species, Homo sapiens, stretching back ,, years, let alone the roughly two million years of our genus Homo, this is the tip of the iceberg.
We now have a temporal frame and plenty of empirical evidence for the "state of nature" that Thomas Hobbes and Jean-Jacque Rousseau discussed in the abstract and described in diametrically opposed terms. All human populations during the Pleistocene, until about 12, years ago, were hunter-gatherers, or foragers, of the simple, mobile sort that lacked accumulated resources.
Studying such human populations that survived until recently or still survive in remote corners of the world, anthropology should have been uniquely positioned to answer the question of aboriginal human fighting or lack thereof. Yet access to, and the interpretation of, that information has been intrinsically problematic. The main problem has been the "contact paradox.
Therefore, documenting them requires contact with literate state societies that necessarily affects the former and potentially changes their behavior, including fighting. This article argues that the fear of suicidal contagion and the horror of vaccination, both of which raged in Britain in the long eighteenth century, were linked to ideas about sympathy and the importation of the Other into the Self.

The image of American writer Ernest Hemingway was partly created by favorable media imagery and celebrity culture. With the advent of newer media technologies in the twentieth century, writers such as Hemingway, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Emile Zola and Ford Maddox Ford often called the Lost Generation [generation perdue] were able to carefully manipulate their audience through their writing and the Romantic image that was circulated by the public.
The idealized way in which these authors were viewed is reminiscent of the period of Romanticism, when authors such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Lord Byron were revered as geniuses. This paper will examine the progress and transformation of the Hemingway Myth, i. This paper will argue that in the field of literature, celebrity authors particularly benefit from the flattering outcome of cultural memory, in which figures such as writers and artists are enamored by their public.

Esperienza estetica e semiotica del discorso musicale", Mimesis Edizioni, Milano — Udine, Dynamics of a particle with friction and delay. At the contact point, we characterize the friction by a Coulomb law associated with a friction cone. Starting from a formulation of the problem that was given by Jean-Jacques Moreau in the form of a second-order differential inclusion in the sense of measures, we consider a sweeping process algorithm that converges towards a solution to the dynamical contact problem.
The mathematical machinery as well as the general plan of the existence proof may seem much too heavy in order to treat just this simple case, but they have proved useful in more complex settings. Congenital nystagmus and negative electroretinography.
The precise diagnosis requires detailed clinical examination and electrophysiological findings. This case report presents two male patients with congenital nystagmus examined longitudinally from the age of six months until years of age. Clinical and electrophysiological protocols were detailed.
The first results showed electronegative electroretinography in the two cases and examination combined with electroretinographic findings helped us to make the diagnosis of Congenital Night Stationary Blindness CSNB. This diagnosis was confirmed by genetic studies. CSNB is interesting to study because through electrophysiological findings, it enables a better understanding of the physiology of neural transmission in the outer part of the retina.
Keywords: Congenital nystagmus, negative electroretinography, congenital night stationary blindness. Impact of the shape of the implantable ports on their efficiency of flow injection and flushing. The effective flushing of these devices is a key factor that ensures their long-lasting use.

On the basis of considerations of the research entitled Editorial genetic rites and scientific communication: a review of activity in journals, this work intended to highlight the configuration of these journals as communicative devices.
So far, this investigation proves that some dimensions of the editorial mediation are guided by the imaginary of science which puts academic knowledge into public circulation. Figurino, moda e luxo no filme Zuzu Angel. Staff members with 25 years' service at CERN in Sistemi e autopoiesi nella musica elettronica su nastro magnetico. Full Text Available With the development of sound production and processing technologies, composers' private rooms stopped delimiting the boundaries of musical creativity, which started inhabiting recording studios instead.
Here memory, traditionally entrusted to paper and to the silence of the musical text, met a technology that enabled to record sounds directly, thus achieving the acoustic fulfilment of the composer's thought. The crystalline abstraction of musical notation gave way to a world of sounds submerged in noise as well as in human and technological indeterminacy: it is a world that requires specific control strategies and direct confrontation with performance practices and listening within a complex system.
Composers were tossed into this system, becoming performers and active observers of their own work. When velocity jumps are occurring, the dynamics is said to be nonsmooth. For instance, in collections of contacting rigid bodies, jumps are caused by shocks and dry friction. Without compliance at the interface, contact laws are not only non-differentiable in the usual sense but also multi-valued. Modeling contacting bodies is of interest in order to understand the behavior of numerous mechanical systems such as flexible multi-body systems, granular materials or masonry.
These granular materials behave puzzlingly either like a solid or a fluid and a description in the frame of classical continuous mechanics would be welcome though far to be satisfactory nowadays. Jean-Jacques Moreau greatly contributed to convex analysis, functions of bounded variations, differential measure theory, sweeping process theory, definitive mathematical tools to deal with nonsmooth dynamics.
He converted all these underlying theoretical ideas into an original nonsmooth implicit numerical method called Contact Dynamics CD ; a robust and efficient method to simulate large collections of bodies with frictional contacts and impacts.
The CD method offers a very interesting complementary alternative to the family of smoothed explicit numerical methods, often called Distinct Elements Method DEM. In this paper developments and improvements of the CD method are presented together with a critical comparative review of advantages and drawbacks of both approaches.
Overactive bladder, differential diagnosis, and clinical utility of fesoterodine. Urge incontinence is not present in all. There is no direct correlation with detrusor overactivity, an objective finding during urodynamic testing where involuntary contractions can be noticed. Anatomical and infectious causes have to be diagnosed or ruled out. Diagnosis of overactive bladder is made mostly by history-taking, but other tests can be necessary in specific patients.
Treatment consists of behavioral measures, a good explanation of the condition, training, and pelvic floor physiotherapy. Drugs are often used. Until recently, antimuscarinic drugs have been the mainstay of pharmacological therapy. Fesoterodine is a newer antimuscarinic agent which is more pharmacodynamically stable then tolterodine. Fesoterodine has been extensively researched using different dosages and compared with placebo and tolterodine, in different age groups, and under different conditions.
Fesoterodine is superior to placebo and to tolterodine in the short term and long term. Its safety is very acceptable. Keywords: overactive bladder, fesoterodine, incontinence, urgency, lower urinary tract. Golden Jubilee Event for Cinema Fans.

Although targets for both diastolic blood pressure DBP and systolic blood pressure SBP are defined by current guidelines, DBP has historically taken precedence in hypertension management. Moreover, achieving control of SBP is assuming greater importance amongst an aging population.
In spite of the growing recognition of the importance of SBP in reducing cardiovascular risk and the emphasis by current guidelines on SBP control, a substantial proportion of patients still fail to achieve SBP targets, and SBP control is achieved much less frequently than DBP control. Thus, new approaches to the management of hypertension are required in order to control SBP and minimize cardiovascular risk.
Fixed-dose combination FDC therapy is an approach that offers the advantages of multiple drug administration and a reduction in regimen complexity that favors compliance. We have reviewed the latest evidence demonstrating the efficacy in targeting SBP of the most recent FDC products; combinations of the calcium channel blocker CCB, amlodipine, with angiotensin receptor blockers ARBs, valsartan or olmesartan.
In addition, results from studies with new classes of agent are outlined. Keywords: hypertension, systolic blood pressure, angiotensin receptor blocker, calcium channel blocker, combination therapy. STS Flight Day On this eleventh day of the STS mission, the flight crew, Cmdr.

Full Text Available In this article, we illustrate the possibilities of manipulation offered by dubbing as a modality of audiovisual translation with some examples extracted from the film The name of the rose, directed by the French Jean-Jacques Annaud , and based on the novel by Umberto Eco Il nome della rosa Firstly, we will concentrate on the changes operated in the Italian version, which could be divided into different categories.
It is observed that the speech of the narrator is remarkably longer. Secondly, we will examine the changes operated in the French version. This time we also find some enlargements with respect to the English version, although not as important as in the Italian case, and also a new scene. In this version, what is more noticeable during the whole film is the accent of the characters, which tries to reflect the origin of the different monks living in the abbey.
Finally, we will say a few words about the Spanish version, which appears to be the most faithful to the original version. The aim of my thesis is to grasp the myth of the noble savage in the work of J. Specifically, I will occupy my mind with Discourse on the Origin and Basis of Inequality Among Men, in which Rousseau presents human being from its origin to the civil society, and partly I will draw from Emile, or On Education, where Rousseau presents the noble savage and applies him to forming of future generations.
In this work I will try to sketch out particular components of the studied myth myth Genetics Home Reference: 15q Full Text Available Political philosophers tend to think that Rousseau is significant because his contractarianism anticipates Kant.
However, reading Rousseau in this way requires us to ignore his frequent and emphatic appeals to the role of happiness as collective flourishing eudaimonia in establishing the rational authority of justice. I argue that for Rousseau , as for Kant, obligations are structured by the autonomous willing of agents who bind themselves by the norms of reason alone. But unlike Kant, Rousseau thinks that such formal considerations of rational autonomy provide necessary but not sufficient reasons for fulfilling our duties to one another.
This is because the ultimate reason for valuing individual autonomy is that it enables the flourishing of individuals insofar as they are members of a just political community. Perelman's Universal Audience. Examines the concept of the universal audience as the basic factor of Chaim Perelman's rhetorical theory and concludes that it is subject to the same criticism as Rousseau 's general will and Kant's categorical imperative.
When since is used as a subordinator,it can introduce either a temporal adverbial clause or a causal one. My purpose in this paper is to study cases in which such a polysemy at the level of the subordinator results in the production of subordinates whose meaning proves to be ambiguous between the categories of time and cause. In addition to the taking into account of the context, whether exophoric or endophoric, I put forward a series of syntactic criteria which should help disambiguate between the two possible interpretations.
These are based on the study of the characteristics of nearly five-hundred examples of since- clauses taken. Are the current recommendations for the use of aspirin in primary prevention of cardiovascular disease applicable in low-income countries? In low-income countries LIC specifically, the decision to prescribe aspirin for primary CVD prevention is more problematic, as there is a dearth of evidence in this regard.
Aspirin has been shown to have relative beneficial effects in preventing a first myocardial infarction, but not stroke. However, as stroke is the prevailing CVD in many LIC, especially in Africa, the benefit of aspirin in these settings is therefore questionable. Indeed, there is no published trial that has evaluated the benefits and risks of continuous aspirin therapy in populations of LIC.
Furthermore, though cardiovascular risk assessment is crucial in decision-making for the use of aspirin in primary prevention of CVD, there are no risk assessment tools that have been validated in African populations. Studies are urgently warranted, to determine the usefulness of aspirin in primary prevention of CVD in low-income settings where the drug is highly available and affordable, as CVD is becoming the leading cause of deaths in LIC.
Keywords: aspirin, cardiovascular disease, primary prevention, low-income countries. Power port contrast medium flushing and trapping: impact of temperature, an in vitro experimental study. Owing to the thermo-rheological properties of the contrast media, the primary aim of this work is to present an in vitro experimental impact study concerning the impact of the temperature level on flushing efficiency after contrast medium injection.
Moreover, we report experimental data that confirms the role of needle bevel orientation. The secondary aim is to answer the following questions: Is there significant device contrast medium trapping after contrast medium injection? Is saline flushing efficient? And, finally, is it safe to inject contrast medium through an indwelled port catheter? Results: The experimental results show that in addition to hydrodynamics, temperature is a key parameter for the efficiency of device flushing after contrast medium injection.
It appears that this is the case when the cavity is incompletely rinsed after three calibrated flushing volumes of 10 mL saline solution, even by using the Huber needle bevel opposite to the port exit. This leads to a potentially important trapped volume of contrast medium in the port, and consequently to the possibility of subsequent salt precipitates and long term trisubstituted benzene nuclei delivery that might impair the solute properties, which may be further injected via the power port later on.
Conclusion: We thus suggest, in TIVADS patients, the use of a temporary supplementary intravenous line rather than the port to perform contrast medium injections in daily radiology routine practice. Application in the STRATHE trial of a score system to compare the efficacy and the tolerability of different therapeutic strategies in the management of hypertension.

One of the main challenges for society in the years to come is to build a sound recruitment base for jobs and careers in science and technology. Attracting more young people is vital for the future of European research, and the EIROforum paper on science policy offers a series of actions to stimulate the interest of young people in science. These include improving the visibility of European science in the media, creating a "Partnership for Science Education", continuing with their successful "Science on Stage" annual festival and participating in the European Contest for Young Scientists, organised by the European Commission.
The EIROforum paper on science policy subscribes to the European Commission strategy to recruit and retain world-leading scientists in Europe. This strategy should be supported by a European Research Council ERC acting as an autonomous, science-driven agency endowed with sufficient funds to ensure European research is competitive at a global level. The international character of the seven EIROforum partners makes them ideal to function as scientific, technological and cultural bridges between Europe and other regions of the world.
The EIROforum partners could also join European industry in technology platforms or large integrated projects that would enable the development of new scientific instrumentation, an area that needs European suppliers to secure and promote front-line research on our continent and generate important industrial.

According to Jean Jacques Rousseua, getting read of freedom means getting read of all values of humanbeings. It is almost imposible to think this kind of giving up of human rights and freedom. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the EuroeanConvention on Human Rights both generally comprises rights andfreedom, prohibition of torture, slavery, forced labor, freedom, the rightto a fair tail, legal penalties, private and family life, freedom of opinion,speech, religio and conscrence.
In this essay, Enver Hoxha was subjected to value himself and hisperiod on ten different areas of human rights and freedom. Enver Hoxha rescued his country from the invaderes country andruled it forty years without any gap.
What makes different is that EnverHoca never accepts human rights and freedom although he was themost educated and enlightened man among the dictatorships in theworld at that time. The main reason of this is that Enver Hoca wants tolimit the human rights and freedom or to control all these rights. Additionally, it is well known that Markist Leninist İdeology andStalinist Opinion is a kind of structure in which you can not findfreedom and human rights.

Le Prof. From conditions of equality to demands of justice. Equal freedom is the common starting point for most contractual theories of justice from Hobbes and Rousseau to Rawls. But while equal freedom defines a common starting point for these theories, this does not result in a general consensus on the conception of justice. On the contrary, different To fully understand the relationship between equal freedom and justice we therefore first need to explicate how and why the initial condition of equality is transformed into demands In this paper we discuss how this transformation takes place in the theories of Hobbes, Rousseau and Rawls, with particular emphasis on the vexed relationship between motivation and justification Planck satellite to be presented to media.

Diderot's recipe for liberty ends up seeming more restrictive and reductive than civilisation, which he so boldly blames. To support Enlightenment era goals and values, Diderot makes the vulnerability and inadequacy of Europeans central to his analytical narrative, and does so in a genius way. Completely radical for the time-- actually suggests that "primitive" life, that is, life in proximity to nature, is closer to what European life should be.

Denis Diderot was a French philosopher, art critic, and writer.
Diderot is also known as the author of the dialogue, Le Neveu de Rameau Rameau's Nephew , upon which many articles and sermons about consumer desire have been based. His articles included many topics of the Enlightenment. As a philosopher Diderot speculated on free will and held a completely materialistic view of the universe; he suggested all human behavior is determined by heredity.
He therefore warned his fellow philosophers against an overemphasis on mathematics and against the blind optimism that sees in the growth of physical knowledge an automatic social and human progress. He rejected the Idea of Progress. In his opinion, the aim of progressing through technology was doomed to fail. He founded his philosophy on experiment and the study of probabilities. There he discreetly but firmly refuted d'Alembert's technical errors and personal positions on probability.

The influence of Kant 's critical philosophy on Logical Positivism This paper attempts to show the influence of Kant 's critical philosophy on Logical Positivism.

Die filosofie van Immanuel Kant en Protestants-teologiese The philosophy of Immanuel Kant and Protestant theological structures. Kant 's critical epistemology destroyed the idea of scientific metaphysics valid up to Wolff as the foundation of theology. Kant , however, reconstructed his own metaphysics on the basis of practical reason. In this scheme metaphysics and ethics are Sobre a moralidade do direito em Kant. The Lenoir thesis revisited: Blumenbach and Kant.
Timothy Lenoir launched the historical study of German life science at the end of the 18th century with the claim that J. Blumenbach's approach was shaped by his reception of the philosophy of Immanuel Kant : a 'teleomechanism' that adopted a strictly 'regulative' approach to the character of organisms.
It now appears that Lenoir was wrong about Blumenbach's understanding of Kant , for Blumenbach's Bildungstrieb entailed an actual empirical claim. This has crucial significance for the historical reconstruction of the German life sciences in the period. The Lenoir thesis can no longer serve as the point of departure for that reconstruction.
La mujer en la obra de Jean Jacques Rousseau. Me haparecido apropiado dividir el trabajo en dos apartados. This article reconstructs Leo Strauss's reading of Rousseau 's Epicureanism to argue that his work is unified by an abiding concern with the problem of theory and practice. Strauss sought to clarify the distinction between theory and practice he considered a fundamental precondition of any properly philosophical reflection on political life, and he explained the pernicious obscuring of that distinction through a narrative tracing the modern modifications of classical Epicureanism.
Strauss's critical history of modern political thought is thus part of his attempt to restore the classical distinction between theory and practice to the status of a philosophical problem in modernity. Mendelssohn and Kant on Mathematics and Metaphysics.
The difference between the method of metaphysics and the method of mathematics was an issue of central concern for Kant in both the Pre-Critical and Critical periods. Full Text Available Immanuel Kant denied metaphysical thought. According to Kant , men are not able to understand the nature of something but phenomena.
So also in terms of the universe, men can not attain the nature of universe but phenomena that rose from universe. In this context, Kant denied traditional cosmology. However, Kant develops his own cosmology. He talks about the origin of cosmos. Although the origin of cosmos can not retrace clearly, but it is able to understood by nebular theory. Kant explained space and time base on epistemological principles.
Space and time are an image in human mind, they rose in the same time, and the other things came later. This article is an attempt to study the role of freedom in Kant 's philosophy of ethics with special reference to his two main books on practical reason, namely, The Foundations of the Metaphysics of Ethics and Critique of Practical Reason. Helmholtz's Kant revisited Once more. The all-pervasive nature of Helmholtz's struggle with Kant 's Anschauung.
In this analysis, the classical problem of Hermann von Helmholtz's Kantianism is explored from a particular vantage point, that to my knowledge, has not received the attention it deserves notwithstanding its possible key role in disentangling Helmholtz's relation to Kant 's critical project. More particularly, we will focus on Helmholtz's critical engagement with Kant 's concept of intuition [Anschauung] and the related issue of his dissatisfaction with Kant 's doctrinal dualism.
In doing so, it soon becomes clear that both i crucially mediated Helmholtz's idiosyncratic appropriation and criticism of certain aspects of Kant 's critical project, and ii can be considered as a common denominator in a variety of issues that are usually addressed separately under the general header of the problem of Helmholtz's Kantianism. The perspective offered in this analysis can not only shed interesting new light on some interpretive issues that have become commonplace in discussions on Helmholtz's Kantianism, but also offers a particular way of connecting seemingly unrelated dimensions of Helmholtz's engagement with Kant 's critical project e.
Helmholtz's views on causality and space. Furthermore, it amounts to the rather surprising conclusion that Helmholtz's most drastic revision of Kant 's project pertains to his assumption of free will as a formal condition of experience and knowledge. Immanuel Kant , his philosophy and medicine.

Full Text Available Kant 's demystification is meant to put away any metaphysical and revealed elements from ethics and religion. Kant , fulfilling this, first argues that metaphysical questions of reason, from theoretical aspect, have no certain answers. In practical reason, he establishes his moral foundations, based on own human being without any referring to metaphysical bases.
Therefore, for Kant , religion means recognizing our duties as divine judgments, and that such religion pertains to our mundane life not for worshiping God in order to get his satisfaction or benefitting his grace. So the mysteries that are claimed by revealed religions are meaningless, since our reason, itself, determines the nature, function and virtues of God, moral axioms and religious beliefs.
Long before public libraries, online bookstores that ship directly to our homes, technologies that enable the downloading of publications directly to mobile devices, and social networks supporting virtual book clubs, eighteenth-century book readers relied heavily on literary societies, subscription libraries, and the advice of and selections made…. Distanciamiento ilustrado en las argumentaciones deconstructoras de Rousseau. Such an primary state of nature was considered to be blissful, peaceful, harmonious, void of envy or jealously and prelinguistic or silent.
However, when Rousseau presented in The Social Contract his theory of the General Will, he developed argumentative strategies directed to overcome the isolationist connotations of the state of nature and. Kant on anatomy and the status of the life sciences. This paper contributes to recent interest in Kant 's engagement with the life sciences by focusing on one corner of those sciences that has received comparatively little attention: physical and comparative anatomy.
By attending to remarks spread across Kant 's writings, we gain some insight into Kant 's understanding of the disciplinary limitations but also the methodological sophistication of the study of anatomy and physiology. Insofar as Kant highlights anatomy as a paradigmatic science guided by the principle of teleology in the Critique of the Power of Judgment, a more careful study of Kant 's discussions of anatomy promises to illuminate some of the obscurities of that text and of his understanding of the life sciences more generally.
In the end, it is argued, Kant 's ambivalence with regard to anatomy gives way to a pessimistic conclusion about the possibility that anatomy, natural history, and, by extension, the life sciences more generally might one day become true natural sciences.
Autonomy and purity in Kant 's moral theory. Kant believed that the moral law is a law that the rational will legislates. Many are drawn to Kantian ethics because of its emphasis on the dignity and legislative authority of the rational being. The attractiveness of this emphasis on the special standing and capacities of the self grounds a recent tendency to interpret Kantian autonomy as a doctrine according to which individual agents create binding Anthropologia transscendentalis.
Kant 's theory of human nature. In recent years mankind has greatly extended its knowledge of living things, in general, and itself, in particular. Such a wide-ranging body of knowledge has consequently led to the need for a theory to encompass it, that is, a coherent framework in which to systematically arrange mankind's understanding of itself, not only with regard to its physical nature, but to its individuality and sociality as well.
Such a theory would moreover provide the means to mediate between the various domains of scientific and technological enquiry, on the one hand, and the cultural dimensions of human society, on the other. Already in the 18th century, Immanuel Kant strove to establish a discipline that was systematic, yet at the same time accessible.
It was due to his efforts that philosophical anthropology was introduced into university curricula, to the benefit not only of philosophers, but of physicians and jurists as well. Kant 's position is by no means prejudicial towards science. To the contrary, he was quite careful to appraise the impact of the sciences on the overall cognitive horizons of mankind and therefore on their potential to influence humankind's idea of itself.
Clearly such a perspective is relevant to today's strongly felt need to reconcile modern neuroscience's revolutionary findings on the biological bases of the mind - of man's experience and behaviour - with the idea man needs of himself in order to orient his actions not only as individual but also as "citizen of the world" as well - something on which Kant worked with unremitting commitment throughout his entire research career.
This article traces Kant 's anthropological conception with regard to four specific issues: 1 its relation to science; 2 the relationship between empirical and transcendental in the speculative use and in practical use of reason; 3 the dialectic between what nature does and what human beings does, in the construction of humanity itself; 4 and finally about the character of the. Kant is widely acknowledged as the greatest philosopher of modern times.
He undertook his famous critical turn to save human freedom and morality from the challenge of determinism and materialism. Intertwined with his metaphysical interests, however, he also had theological commitments, which have received insufficient attention. He intended to provide a fortress protecting religious faith from the failure of rationalist m Kant 's view is standardly summarized as requiring the 'universalizability' of one's maxims and described in terms of the distinction between 'contradictions in conception' and 'contradictions in the will'.
Focussing on the underappreciated significanc What is Culture? Kant and Simmel. While the former is the one who reflects upon the enlightenment era with criticism and hope, the latter evaluates capitalism and the industrial era with apathetic criticism. However, both of them have managed to philosophically grasp the phenomenon of culture in its universality and true meaning.
This text aims at identifying the parallels between the spirits of both eras. Full Text Available The article intends to study the moral thought in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant , considered the first of the philosophers who composes the movement known as German Idealism, especially in the book "Critique of Practical Reason". To achieve the objective the article begins with the traces of the moral studies at Kants time and its fundamental questions as well as traces of his formation that influenced his writings.
Soon after, it analyzes the Kantian thought itself, through the work "The Idea of Justice in Kant ", from Joaquim Carlos Salgado, theoretical framework of this research. It will be analyzed the postulate of freedom and its relationship with the sollen and the moral law, the species of imperatives, the categorical imperative and equality, connections that the moral theory makes for the existence of positive law and that the author considers the greater pillar of the Idea of justice from the Prussian philosophers point of of view.
The methodology used in the research is theoretical, based on the analysis of the theoretical framework and its relationship to other publications concerning the same subject. Cosmopolitanism and peace in Kant 's essay on 'Perpetual Peace'. In connexion with a substantial argument for cosmopolitan rights based on the human body and its need for a space on the surface of the Earth, Kant presents In this contribution, Kant 's essay is analysed and the reasons he gives for these restrictions discussed in relation to his main focus: to project a realistic path to perpetual peace Teleological judgment and instrumental reason in Kant and Horkheimer.
Early in his career, Max Horkheimer occupied himself twice with Kant 's "Critique of judgment". In both cases he focussed on Kant 's teleology, not his aesthetics. The article takes at the question, whether there is a connection between Horkheimer's early occupation with "the critique of teleological Kant 's deontological ethics, along with Aristotle's virtue ethics and Mill's utilitarian ethics, is often identified as one of the three primary moral options between which individuals can choose.

Here I offer some brief reflections on these conceptions of virtue and its cultivation.
I argue that Kant 's conception of virtue is grounded in a mistaken conception of desire, and that this…. In line with familiar portrayals of Kant 's ethics, interpreters of his philosophy of education focus essentially on its intellectual dimension: the notions of moral catechism, ethical gymnastics and ethical ascetics, to name but a few.
By doing so, they usually emphasise Kant 's negative stance towards the role of feelings in moral education. The purpose of this paper is to view Kant 's approach to education in the broader context of Kant 's philosophy of culture and history as a process whose direction should be reflectively assumed by human freedom, in the light of man's moral vocation. In this context, some characteristic tensions of his enlightened approach to education appear.
Rousseau 's analysis indicates that the entrance in the symbolic universe brings the possibility of loosing individual's unity, what may induce the rupture of social bond. Considering the demonstration that the representative signs mediation takes place in three different instances, we tried to detect if the same logic that commands Rousseau 's system as a whole is also verified in his musical theories.
Here we demonstrate that Rousseau 's musical conceptions, expressed through a hierarchical sequence of values going from minimum to maximum insertion of representative signs, are perfectly integrated in the author's work, agreeing with the principles on which his doctrines are based.

There are throughout Kant 's work many propositions concerning to what is today called hermeneutics, i. Notwithstanding the clear influence of these propositions on Fr. Schlegel and Schleiermacher, who should be recognized as the founders of modern hermeneutics, they aren't duly taken in account by the historians of hermeneutics.
The present paper proposes to recover the historical memory of these connections, in order to attain a fair picture of the development of modern hermeneutics. Kant on causal laws and powers. The aim of the paper is threefold. Its first aim is to defend Eric Watkins's claim that for Kant , a cause is not an event but a causal power: a power that is borne by a substance, and that, when active, brings about its effect, i.
The second aim of the paper is to argue against Watkins that the Kantian concept of causal power is not the pre-critical concept of real ground but the category of causality, and that Kant holds with Hume that causal laws cannot be inferred non-inductively that he accordingly has no intention to show in the Second analogy or elsewhere that events fall under causal laws. The third aim of the paper is to compare the Kantian position on causality with central tenets of contemporary powers ontology: it argues that unlike the variants endorsed by contemporary powers theorists, the Kantian variants of these tenets are resistant to objections that neo-Humeans raise to these tenets.

I argue that he is a pioneer of the notions of early childhood education. He is also precursor of the direct democracy from the political association; which is a base for social cohesion. I argue that Rousseau ideas are useful reference for building an open republic.
Then, I argue that these concepts are fundamental for a modern civic education, which is relevant considering the current conservative tendencies in the global crisis. Full Text Available When the Military Law was passed, it established three-year universal conscription and a greater army of citizens to boost military preparedness for war in French colonies and against Germany.
Far from its ramifications being of no concern to neo-impressionists, it was the subject of bightingly bitter antimilitarist cartoons by Maximilien Luce and antimilitarist paintings by the neo-impressionist outsider, 'Le douanier' Rousseau. Far from picturing the patriotic honor of becoming a soldier and the victories of war, as did Edouard Detaille, Rousseau did the opposite. In the heat of military slaughter of families at Fourmies, Rousseau revealed how conscription would transform French citizens into le corps militaire to fight not just against their arch-enemy with machine-like precision but against their very own people.
Reflexiones acerca de la prudencia en Kant. Full Text Available Kant discusses prudence in many different contexts. His pragmatic anthropology is a doctrine of prudence; Kant lectured on anthropology from until and published a resumee of those lectures in In his moral philosophy, prudence appear under various aspects.
First, it is an opponent to pure morality, trying to guide human life instead of conceding primacy to the categorical imperative; but on the other hand it is a moral duty to cultivate prudence as an human faculty which enables us to master pragmatic challenges in our life. And, thirdly, moral philosophy shows the possibility of a convergence of morality and prudence; you can find this in Kant 's conception of the highest good in ethics and in political philosophy, in the idea, that moral actions will show themselves to be the most prudent.
Another important aspect of Kant 's philosophy of prudence is the problem of freedom; in the Critique of Practical Reason the moral law is the necessary and sufficient condition of freedom; but then raises the question about whether prudent actions can be free or are merely the products of the determination of the inner sense.
Kant analiza el tema de la prudencia en contextos muy diferentes. Full Text Available This article deals with some similitudes that may be perceived between the works of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and those of Plato. We intend to examine mainly the existent resemblances concerning eloquence and the power of discourse, as much as they have political actions as their ends.
We aim at demonstrating that both authors attribute both positive and negative traits to discourse and eloquence. In order to achieve these goals, we shall use mainly the works Essay on the origin of languages and Discourse on the origin of inequality, by Rousseau , and Phaedrus and Gorgias, by Plato. A verdade como um problema fundamental em Kant Kant on truth as a fundamental problem.
The main point of disagreement about Kant 's approach of the problem of truth is whether it can be understood within the apparatus of contemporary philosophy as a coherence or a correspondence theory. By favoring a systematic consideration of Kant 's argumentation in light of the available literature on the problem, this paper argues toward the latter alternative.
It is sustained that the definition of truth as "the agreement of cognition with its object" is cogent throughout Kant 's thought and. Full Text Available In Kant 's transcendental philosophy, "sensible" is an object composed of multiple sense intuitions and a priori constitutive of mind. In this philosophy, sensible nature is empirical and mechanical that becomes universal and necessary under determinate concepts and principles of Understanding.
But, there is another space not determined by concepts and principles of Understanding. This space is "super sensible". This super sensible is the space of noumenal objects and is very important in Kant 's system of philosophy. This sphere is important for explaining the principle of uniformity of nature as a supporter to induction, some ethical items and religion theory, organisms and culture.
But how can we get at this realm? And is this realm compatible with the realm of empirical knowledge? In this paper we want to explain these matters. As to reflection - more precisely Kant and the temptations of phantasy. Padma Kant Shukla After his Ph. Direitos Humanos em Kant e Habermas. Kant , Xunzi and the Artificiality of Manners. Full Text Available Both Chinese and Western philosophers have argued for the ethical importance of manners.
Their approaches are sometimes criticized on the grounds that manners are artificial. I show that there is no single artificiality claim, but rather four different claims: the claim that polite behavior lacks spontaneity, the claim that it is insincere, the claim that it goes against human nature, and the claim that it is arbitrary.
While Kant is mainly concerned with the insincerity claim, Xunzi focusses on the claim that manners are arbitrary rules. Because of their different understandings of the function of manners both authors only provide a partial answer to the artificiality claim. To arrive at a full account of manners both perspectives must be combined. The Connection between Beauty and Morality in Kant 's aesthetics. Full Text Available Abstract At first glance it seems that Kant distinguishes beauty from morality because while analyzing the matter of beauty according to quality, he explicitly separates pleasure of beauty from pleasure of agreeable and pleasure of good; and believes that the pleasure of the beauty is neither to satisfy our physical desires nor to achieve a moral purpose.
On the other hand, Kant speaks of a connection between beauty and morality in some sections of his critique of judgment. This essay intends to study the mentioned sections and clarifies how one can distinguish beauty from morality and simultaneously believes in the connection between beauty and morality. Following this, we are going to discuss why Kant deems such a connection necessary.
Examining this matter, we will find out that morality and aesthetics can be indirectly related to each other. Kant 's most major concern with regard to the connection between beauty and morality is the connection between feelings and foredoom. Kant and the development of the human and cultural sciences.
Starting with Kant 's doubts about psychology as a natural science capable of explaining human behavior, several alternative attempts to conceive of human life, culture and history are examined. Kant proposes an anthropology that will be a commonly useful human science rather than a universally valid natural science. This anthropology relates to philosophy as a mode of world-cognition. Special attention is given to how Kant 's theory of right can help define our appropriate place in a communal world.
The different ways in which Wilhelm Dilthey and Hermann Cohen respond to Kant 's idea of legitimate appropriation are also considered. The various tasks that descriptive elucidation, explanation, reflective understanding, characterization and interpretation can perform for the human and cultural sciences are examined throughout the essay.
Full Text Available The paper examines possible interpretations of poetry and poetic image analysing the dialogue between the arts of literature and painting. What is analysed is the creative superstructure based upon nonliterary reference, as well as the visual elements attained through two diverse artistic media.
Central in the analyses of women's and gender studies within the history of education has been Rousseau 's Emil oder Uber die Erziehung, 12th edn. Ferdinand Schoningh, Paderborn educational novel Emile, especially Book 5, which deals with the education of Sophie, Emilie's future spouse. Given the lasting interest in the person of Rousseau…. Predictive processing PP is a paradigm in computational and cognitive neuroscience that has recently attracted significant attention across domains, including psychology, robotics, artificial intelligence and philosophy.
It is often regarded as a fresh and possibly revolutionary paradigm shift, yet a handful of authors have remarked that aspects of PP seem reminiscent of the work of 18th century philosopher Immanuel Kant. To date there have not been any substantive discussions of how exactly PP links back to Kant.
Themes from Kant active in PP include: 1 the emphasis on "top-down" generation of percepts; 2 the role of "hyperpriors"; 3 the general function of "generative models"; 4 the process of "analysis-by-synthesis"; and 5 the crucial role of imagination in perception.
In addition to these, I also point out that PP echoes Kant 's general project in that it aims to explain how minds track causal structure in the world using only sensory data, and that it uses a reverse-engineer or "top-down" method of analysis.
I then locate a possible source of Kant 's influence on PP by tracing the paradigm back to Hermann von Helmholtz, who saw himself as providing a scientific implementation of Kant 's conclusions. I conclude by arguing that PP should not be regarded as a new paradigm, but is more appropriately understood as the latest incarnation of an approach to perception and cognition initiated by Kant and refined by Helmholtz. We present a formalization and computational implementation of the second formulation of Kant 's categorical imperative.
This ethical principle requires an agent to never treat someone merely as a means but always also as an end. Here we interpret this principle in terms of how persons are causally affected by actions. We introduce Kantian causal agency models in which moral patients, actions, goals, and causal influence are represented, and we show how to formalize several readings of Kant 's Die filosofie van Immanuel Kant en Protestants-teologiese denkstrukture.
The purpose of this The metaphor of epigenesis: Kant , Blumenbach and Herder. Over the last few decades, the meaning of the scientific theory of epigenesis and its significance for Kant 's critical philosophy have become increasingly central questions. Most recently, scholars have argued that epigenesis is a key factor in the development of Kant 's understanding of reason as self-grounding and self-generating.
Building on this work, our claim is that Kant appealed to not just any epigenetic theory, but specifically Johann Friedrich Blumenbach's account of generation, and that this appeal must be understood not only in terms of self-organization, but also in terms of the demarcation of a specific domain of inquiry: for Blumenbach, the study of life; for Kant , the study of reason.
We argue that Kant adopted this specific epigenetic model as a result of his dispute with Herder regarding the independence of reason from nature. Blumenbach's conception of epigenesis and his separation of a domain of the living from the non-living lent Kant the tools to demarcate metaphysics, and to guard reason against Herder's attempts to naturalize it. Published by Elsevier Ltd. Recepcion of Rousseau in formation initial of primary school teachers Spain, 20th century.
The above analysis is divided into two periods, before and after the civil war, in order to show the predominance of the catholic-conservative moralizing and critical approach, particularly during francoism. Copernicus, Kant , and the anthropic cosmological principles. In the last three decades several cosmological principles and styles of reasoning termed 'anthropic' have been introduced into physics research and popular accounts of the universe and human beings' place in it.
I discuss the circumstances of 'fine tuning' that have motivated this development, and what is common among the principles. I examine the two primary principles, and find a sharp difference between these 'Weak' and 'Strong' varieties: contrary to the view of the progenitors that all anthropic principles represent a departure from Copernicanism in cosmology, the Weak Anthropic Principle is an instance of Copernicanism. It has close affinities with the step of Copernicus that Immanuel Kant took himself to be imitating in the 'critical' turn that gave rise to the Critique of Pure Reason.
I conclude that the fact that a way of going about natural science mentions human beings is not sufficient reason to think that it is a subjective approach; in fact, it may need to mention human beings in order to be objective. Resourcifying human bodies-- Kant and bioethics. This essay roughly sketches two major conceptions of autonomy in contemporary bioethics that promote the resourcification of human body parts: 1 a narrow conception of autonomy as self-determination; and 2 the conception of autonomy as dissociated from human dignity.
In this paper I will argue that, on the one hand, these two conceptions are very different from that found in the modern European tradition of philosophical inquiry, because bioethics has concentrated on an external account of patient's self-determination and on dissociating dignity from internal human nature.
However, on the other hand, they are consistent with more recent European philosophy. In this more recent tradition, human dignity has gradually been dissociated from contextual values, and human subjectivity has been dissociated from objectivity and absolutized as never to be objectified.
In the concluding part, I will give a speculative sketch in which Kant 's internal inquiry of maxim of ends, causality and end, and dignity as iirreplaceability is recombined with bioethics' externalized one and used to support an extended human resourcification. This article seeks to show, with the help of an analytical-reconstructive work, that at the basis of Rousseau 's "secular argument" about the origin of human evil, developed in book IV of the Emile, lies a theory of the rational determination of the will that oscillates between the concepts of conscience and reason.
By the expression "secular argument" is understood here the fact that Rousseau no longer sees the origin of evil in a strange force, or in the singular individual, but in society itself. The present text attempts to clarify also that, despite this vacillation, such theory. This argument highlights the concept of legal person with the innate right to freedom as the necessary presupposition of legal practices, and sets forth a fundamental sense of justice inherent to the concept of law that consists in the reciprocal recognition of legal personality.
In the end, I come up with a distinctive conception of law that I formulate as a last resort of normativity in the face of a conflict wherein an ethical solution does not appeal to all parties. Full Text Available Immanuel Kant 's Cosmopolitanism has come to stand alongside Political Realism and Liberal Internationalism as one of three broad theories of ethics in international relations. This paper seeks to address these criticisms of Cosmopolitanism by studying examples of Cosmopolitan norms in action.
These examples have been drawn from diverse regions around the globe to represent self-organized, 'self-legislating', civil societies that have themselves developed the rules that guide their behaviour and the terms of their discourse in the absence of a centralized governing authority.
It is hoped that this approach will contribute to this ongoing debate by demonstrating that Cosmopolitan norms can be found in a diverse array of human communities and cultures, that Cosmopolitan norms are not only compatible with pluralism, but are instrumental in its success and vitality, and, finally, that the flourishing of such civil societies shows that the adoption of Cosmopolitan norms are strongly correlated with successful outcomes and well-being.
Limits of Constructivism: Kant , Piaget and Peirce. The paradox of mathematical knowledge that mathematics cannot be conceived of as completely separated from empirical experience and yet cannot be explained by empiricist epistemology for a slightly different and more elaborate formulation cf. Blackwell Companion to Epistemology, f , can only be resolved if one accepts that the causal interactions between knower and environment have themselves a generalizing tendency, a sort of continuity, rather than consisting just of singular events.
Kant resolves the schism between the continous and the distinct in a constructivist manner. He assumes that all our knowledge-extending cognitions are synthetic. This synthesis does not lie in the matter of experience but springs from the function of cognizant consciousness.
Piaget adhered to a Kantianism where the categories are not there at the outset. He conceives of the subject as constructing itself as well as of the emerging subject's structure as the source of the apprehension of the wo rld and believes in a Kantianism which emphasizes man's active being and potential for unlimited self-development.
But he has no use for the Kantian idea of space and time as forms of mathematical intuition. Kantian thought is also central to Peirce's philosophy and conception of mathematics. But Peirce emphasizes the role of perception and analysis as its prerequisites.
Peirce's and Piaget's origins in Kantianism are exhibited when both try to replace the Aristotelian notion of abstraction and generalization by something more suitable for mathematical epistemology. Peirce proposes that hypostatic abstraction is the chief explanation for the power of mathematical reasoning and explains: This operation is performed when something, that one has thought about any subject, is itself made a subject of thought.
Piaget speaks of reflective abstraction in this context, making it the basis of mathematical knowledge; but separating it completely from empirical abstraction. This article contends that the relation of early logical empiricism to Kant was more complex than is often assumed. A teoria do conhecimento de Kant : o idealismo transcendental.

Notes on Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau. Trabalho enviado em 15 de setembro de Aceito em 11 de fevereiro de Full Text Available Is Rousseau a representative of the law of nature tradition or a conventionalist?
The debate is old enough, but R. Indeed, we can find texts or paragraphs of both tendencies. Hence a genealogical study becomes necessary, as the one presented here. Hesitations appear as early as in the Discourse on inequality and are clear in the Geneva Manuscript , but Rousseau finally elaborates his own methodology based on the dialectics conscience-reason. I have proposed to call this methodology constructivist.
It neatly appears in the Social Contract and in Emile. However, there are still paragraphs mixing the above cited traditions, and there are quite a few examples of the former one. The law of nature tradition provided the dominant political language of the age, thanks mainly to the iurisconsulti. Rousseau criticizes them, but he does the same with Hobbes.
This paper aims to contribute to clarifying definitely this issue, thats heds light on the real meaning Rousseau had given to the social contract and to his democratic model. Il potere di Prometeo e il dovere di Kant. The thoughts of every great philosopher is measured and represented by the history of his social background. It is indeed, more appropriate particularly in the case of a great philosopher like Immanuel Kant to single out for special recognition the outstanding characteristics of his early life on his career as a professor of Immanuel Kant envisioned a kind of respect in which one recognizes each human 1 as being not fully comprehensible by any human understanding, 2 as being an end in him- or herself, and 3 as being a potential source of moral law.
In this essay, Gregory Lewis Bynum uses this conception of respect as a lens with which to examine African American….

Culture and paradox in Kant 's philosophy of education. On the other hand, culture may develop the individual towards harmony between inclinations and morality. Morality is constitutive for the notion of human beings as ends in themselves. Thus, Kant 's thoughts on culture allow for a reflection on man Redrawing Kant 's philosophy of mathematics Hall South African Second, it examines how a recent wave of critical analyses of Kant 's constructivism takes up these issues, largely inspired by Hintikka's unorthodox conception of Kantian intuition.
Third, it offers further analyses of three Kantian concepts vitally linked to that of drawing. It concludes with an etymologically based exploration of Kant 's over-reliance on universal reason and his subjection of free will to the moral law can be seen as normalising a particular and restrictive view of autonomous human existence--a view implicit in liberal accounts of education.
Drawing on Nietzsche's critique of Kantian thought, this paper argues that the transcendental and unattainable realm…. Kant 's consideration of space and the puzzle of incongruence. Full Text Available In this paper we are dealing with Kant 's view on the phenomenon of incongruous counterparts, in particular with the argument from his article 'On the First Ground of the Distinction of Regions in Space', where the phenomenon of incongruous counterparts is used as an argument for the existence of the absolute and objective space, and with the argument from Kant 's Inaugural Dissertation in which he uses the phenomenon of incongruous counterparts again, but this time for a different purpose - as an argument in favor of the idea of space as a pure intuition.
Our aim is to show that Kant 's argument from 'On the First Ground of the Distinction of Regions in Space', although it shows the inadequacy of Leibniz's definition of congruence, does not in fact represent the reductio ad absurdum of the relationist view, for his argument in favor of the existence of the absolute space represents merely the inference to the best explanation.
We also propound an alternative account of the phenomenon of incongruous counterparts, which is in line with the relationist theory. Furthermore, we call in question Kant 's argument from the Inaugural Dissertation, according to which incongruence could not be explained discursively, and we put forward a conceptual determination of incongruence in terms of the notions of similarity, equality and congruence, taken as the possibility of objects to be included within the same spatial boundaries.
Why did Kant reject physiological explanations in his anthropology? One of Kant 's central tenets concerning the human sciences is the claim that one need not, and should not, use a physiological vocabulary if one studies human cognitions, feelings, desires, and actions from the point of view of his 'pragmatic' anthropology.
The claim is well known, but the arguments Kant advances for it have not been closely discussed. I argue against misguided interpretations of the claim, and I present his actual reasons in favor of it. Contemporary critics of a 'physiological anthropology' reject physiological explanations of mental states as more or less epistemologically dubious.
Kant does not favor such ignorance claims--and this is for the good, since none of these claims was sufficiently justified at that time. Instead, he develops an original irrelevance thesis concerning the empirical knowledge of the physiological basis of the mind.
His arguments for this claim derive from his original and, up to now, little understood criticism of a certain conception of pragmatic history, related to his anthropological insights concerning our ability to create new rules of action, the social dynamics of human action, and the relative inconstancy of human nature. The irrelevance thesis also changes his views of the goal and methodology of anthropology.
Kant thereby argues for a distinctive approach in quest for a general 'science of man'. Kant or Marx? Philosophy and the Origins of Social Science.

Its main aim is to feed this experience into a reading of Kant 's Critique of Judgment as a means of identifying the productive moment within his thought typically obscured by the continuing dominance of…. On Kant 's idea of humanity as an end in itself. Writers like Christine Korsgaard and Allen Wood understand Kant 's idea of rational nature as an end in itself as a commitment to a substantive value.
This makes it hard for them to explain the supposed equivalence between the universal law and humanity formulations of the categorical imperative,. Limitation and idealism: Kant 's 'long' argument from the categories. The main question to which I want to begin trying to find an answer here is the question what it is that we exactly think, if Kant grants that by means of the pure concepts in abstraction from sensible intuition we can and indeed must still think things in themselves as the ground of the appearances.
Kant 's 'Transcendental Exposition' of Space and Time in the As we shall see, it was the difficulties on the ontological. In the first of the three, Kant does nothing more than demonstrate the limits of speculative knowledge, that which bestows access to the world of the phenomenon, but which can circumvent the element in itself. Theoretical knowledge is limited to patterns of sensitivity, diversity, placing it under categories enabling the apparatus through which we think.
In order to eliminate any confusion regarding the abovementioned elements, Kant , using a footnote, clarifies the connection between morality and freedom: freedom is without a doubt the ratio essendi of moral law, but that the moral law is the ratio cognoscendi of freedom.
Kant deliberately draws attention to the fact that freedom and, as a consequence supreme Good, cannot be conceptualised. The so-called Kantian constructivism relies on this pattern of devising freedom as a principle which cannot be demonstrated, the pillar of the entire construction. Good will is what makes duty, categorical imperative, and even freedom possible. Good will has no connection to human sensitivity, it is a concept based on pure reason. This idea leads us to emphasize that Kant wants to demonstrate in his work regarding morality that man becomes free through a detachment from his bodily inclinations.
This is a modern perspective. Modernism is dominated by the novelty of founding principles within the subject. Thus, subjectivity becomes the dominant force. But modern subjectivity produces as well the concept of relativism. There is no single or absolute truth, but rather truths individually manufactured that interfere from birth onto a space which exists based on a horizontal arrangement.
Last, but not least, there is a modern subjectivity of freedom which is associated to the concept of autonomy. Por el contrario, ve en el sistema del mundo un orden perfecto que obedece a la divina Providencia, identificada con la legalidad universal de la naturaleza. De hecho Rousseau reconoce y admite la presencia, e incluso la abundancia, de diversos males que afectan al hombre. It is Romanticism, and its alleged political and moral deviances, that is indeed targeted through Rousseau.
The misuse of Kant in the debate about a market for human body parts. Passages from the writings of Immanuel Kant concerning how a person should treat her body are often cited in the present-day debate about a market for human body parts. In this paper, I demonstrate that this has been a misuse of Kant because unlike those who cite him, Kant was not primarily concerned with prohibiting the sale of body parts.
In the first section, I argue that once these particular passages are understood against the background of Kant 's moral philosophy, they indicate he had much broader concerns relating to the correct moral relationship a rational person should have with her body. In the second section, I examine Stephen Munzer's unusually detailed analysis of these passages, but conclude that like those who have provided less detailed analyses, he also fails fully to understand the rationale for Kant 's various prescriptions and prohibitions concerning the treatment of human body parts, and in doing so misrepresents Kant 's position.
The German philosopher Immanuel Kant Nevertheless his ritualized way of living determined by many rules and ritualized lunch seems to be a resource that enabled a great and epoch-making work despite his physical weakness. His "maximized" way of living seems to have had no negative consequences either on his work or on his life.
It seems that it made his work and life very agreeable and contributed to the legendary calm and regularity he appreciated so much. Kant 's character was specified by his "constant pursuit for intellectually well-founded principles in every manner" - at least according to his persuasion. So his compulsive personality traits seem to be a necessary condition for his work.
The analysis of the metaphor of economy in Kant , Bataille and Derrida suggests the crucial importance of Bataille's general economy— as the economy of loss —for deconstructing the Kantian conception of genius and the whole scheme of taste— as an economy of consumption —and inscribing a complex interplay forces that the general economy is designed to account for. Once however taste, art and the economy of genius can no longer be inscribed through the restricted economy of the metaphysical text, the question of genre and style of a different inscription—a general economy—acquires a crucial significance.
Bataille's own discursive practice can be seen as an exemplification of such a different— plural — style. We can place Kant as one of the pillars of contemporary medicine. Firstly, as an Illuminist, his work subordinates the collection of empirical data, which in medical science is constitutional to reason. This was the basis of a rational medical science. Secondly, he is the father of medical regulation, having set the philosophical control ground stone for physicians by the State.
His work "Critique of Practical Reason" drafts all the future codes of ethics and bioethics. We will hereby study his relationship with medicine based on the text "The Conflict with the Faculty of Medicine" and other auxiliary texts. We can find in Kant 's works the description of a series of symptoms that were related to a nonspecific dyspeptic syndrome that nowadays would be diagnosed as a strong indication that he suffered from gastroesophageal reflux disease GERD.
Political and religious aspects of community according to Kant. It is possible to imagine a successful community, even if such a community does not exist in the empirical world, and to be oriented toward this ideal without ever being able to realize it.
According to Kant , human moral self-understanding is developed by human reason, and this explains the structural similarity between the secular republic and the Kingdom of God under the specific conditions of the enlightened consciousness of a person who thinks for herself. Thus the anthropological "fact": the self-understanding of the human being characterised by his faculty of reason.
Kant , Nietzsche and the idealization of friendship into nihilism. Is friendship still possible under nihilistic conditions? Kant and Nietzsche are important stages in the history of the idealization of friendship, which leads inevitably to the problem of nihilism.
Nietzsche himself claims on the one hand that only something like friendship can save us in our nihilistic condition, but on the other hand that precisely friendship has been unmasked and become impossible by these very conditions. It seems we are struck in the nihilistic paradox of not being allo Immanuel Kant 's mind and the brain's resting state. Currently, the field faces an analogous problem with regard to the brain.
La pau mundial en el pensament de Kant. Few people have left such an important and impressive mark on the development of Western thought as the philosopher Immanuel Kant , the bicentennial of whose death has been just celebrated. His writings on the reflection and construction Ethics and aims in psychotherapy: a contribution from Kant. Psychotherapy is an activity which takes many forms and which has many aims. The present paper argues that it can be viewed as a form of moral suasion.
Kant 's concepts of free will and ethics are described and these are then applied to the processes and outcome of psychotherapy. It is argued that his ideas, by linking rationality, free will and ethics into a single philosophical system, offer a valuable theoretical framework for thinking about aims and ethical issues in psychotherapy. Kant and education. Reflections regarding the act of teaching. This article is a reflection on Kant 's work and its implications for education.
At first there is a distinction between subjectivism and subjectivity to explain what the dogmatism of reality.
