By Anna Szyrwińska

Ihre historische und systematisch-philosophische examine zeigt, dass Kants praktische Philosophie an mehreren Punkten an die pietistische Lehre und vor allem an die Theologie Philipp Jakob Speners anschließt.

Download Wahn und Wahrheit (German Edition) by Constantin Rauer PDF

By Constantin Rauer

Die Untersuchung stellt die Psychologie und Psychiatrie des jungen Kant vor, die im Rahmen seiner Auseinandersetzung mit dem schwedischen Gelehrten, Mystiker und Geisterseher Emanuel von Swedenborg entstanden ist. Hieraus ging Kants Wahnkritik hervor, in der er die drei Aspekte der Schizophrenie – die Projektion, die Ich-Spaltung sowie die Paranoia – analysiert. Constantin Rauer zeigt, dass und wie Kant seine frühe Wahnkritik in die spätere Vernunftkritik übertragen hat, und wie sich durch diese Anwendung der Psychologie auf die Logik das vollzog, used to be später Kants ‚kritische Wende‘ genannt wurde. Damit vollzieht der Autor erstmals Kants ‚Revolution der Denkungsart‘ und mit dieser die Genese seiner ‚Kritik der reinen Vernunft‘ systematisch nach. So führt seine Untersuchung zu einem neuen Kant-Verständnis, indem sie zeigt, dass Kants Vernunftkritik auch als eine Anti-Wahnkritik zu verstehen ist. Mit seiner Kritik des Wahns aber zielt Kant auf die verborgene Irrationalität der Moderne: auf den erkenntnistheoretischen Wahn des Empirismus, den ethischen Wahn des Sozialdarwinismus sowie den religiösen Wahn im Kulturrelativismus. "Die Arbeit ist klar und überzeugend aufgebaut. Überdies ist sie sehr intestine lesbar geschrieben: klar, zupackend, argumentativ, immer wieder von erhellenden Bildern durchsetzt; und die Verbindung einer wohldurchdachten Interpretation und Argumentation mit einer neuartigen those führt zu einem philosophisch geradezu spannenden textual content. ... Hier findet eine hochentwickelte internationale Kantforschung einen grundlegend neuen Blick." (Otfried Höffe)
