Rousseau, Kant and the Problem of Man

(Original title: Rousseau, Kant a problém človeka)
Filozofia, 52 (1997), 8, 501-506.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper offers historical-philosophical examination of Kant's reception of the philosophy of J. J. Rousseau. A special attention is paid to the shift in Kant's philosophical argumentation and to his growing interest in the anthropological and ethical problematics. The author shows Kant as strongly deriving from Rousseau, pointing out at the same time Kant's criticism of the latter, and his articulation of his own independent practical-philosophical stance.
