Immanuel Kant. Il tempo interno del miglioramento: un paradigma del progresso storico?

Research output: Other contribution


[automatically translated] The subject Kant, to know the moral, must be able to think like a person that has no end in time sensitive: to be thought according to this intelligible form he postulates an infinite duration of his personality. With this it opens a conceivable horizon of meaning only in a 'open future' and dilated endlessly: in this temporal dimension is specific sense the moral exercise of each individual. The time designation of the soul as infinite duration (unendliche Dauer) and intelligible progress that is connected to the postulate show an interesting processuality inherent in an intelligible size - not spatio-temporally conditioned - the existence of moral personality. Although not explicitly thematized by Kant, through this postulate it indicates a peculiar swing - time - exclusive of the noumenon. We will present the contradictory aspect of the infinite processuality argued by Kant: how is it possible, within the transcendental system, once due - paradoxically - the noumenon? The problem of time in the moral philosophy of Kant, and in particular the reference to a non-ordinary temporality due order noumenal, is a very complex issue: to provide food for thought and a first approach to this issue, however, recently it addressed by Kantian literature, we retrace here the studies that have shown and discussed this interesting paradox, assuming an improvement in the internal time of the paradigm of understanding of history from the perspective of the critical philosophy.
