The Quotable Kant - Immanuel Kant - ebook
Opis

Immanuel Kant was a German philosopher who is considered the central figure of modern philosophy.

Immanuel Kant was a German philosopher who is considered the central figure of modern philosophy. Kant argued that the human mind creates the structure of human experience, that reason is the source of morality, that aesthetics arises from a faculty of disinterested judgment, that space and time are forms of our sensibility, and that the world as it is “in-itself” is independent of our concepts of it. Kant took himself to have effected a Copernican revolution in philosophy, akin to Copernicus’ reversal of the age-old belief that the sun revolved around the earth. His beliefs continue to have a major influence on contemporary philosophy, especially the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political theory, and aesthetics.

“We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.”

– Immanuel Kant

“Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, never merely as a means to an end, but always at the same time as an end.”

– Immanuel Kant, Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals/On a Supposed Right to Lie Because of Philanthropic Concerns

“Look closely. The beautiful may be small.”

– Immanuel Kant

“Enlightenment is man’s release from his self-incurred tutelage. Tutelage is man’s inability to make use of his understanding without direction from another. Self-incurred is this tutelage when its cause lies not in lack of reason but in lack of resolution and courage to use it without direction from another. Sapere aude! ‘Have courage to use your own reason!’- that is the motto of enlightenment.”

– Immanuel Kant, An Answer to the Question: What Is Enlightenment?

“Dare to think!”

– Immanuel Kant, What is Enlightenment?

“One who makes himself a worm cannot complain afterwards if people step on him.”

– Immanuel Kant

“Two things fill the mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the mind of thought is drawn to them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”

– Immanuel Kant, Critique of Practical Reason

“I had to deny knowledge in order to make room for faith.”

– Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason
