Die Religion innerhalb der Grenzen der bloßen Vernunft (PDF)
I m sure that this is a towering work of genius and all that but I just on t agree with Kant on very much at all It s a noble project that he undertakes here attempting to find the rational religion that all humans can and indeed must subscribe to It involves peeling back the layers of revealed truths to find the core of rational truth that our reason can testify to What is left however is heavy unwieldy and unappealing and it robs Christianity of its finest elements leaving an insipid mess that isn t overly rational It s something else to see the Enlightenment optimism towards this rational project The fact that Kant believes in the possibility of a Commonwealth of Ethics that all enlightened men would wish to join shows shockingly naive optimism with perhaps a generous helping of hubris At least that s my opinion There are perhaps some who still believe in the possibility of something similar In any case this is the exact sort of book you The Lord and Mary Ann d expect from a staggering 18th century intellect who never left his Prussian hometown This is an excellent book to read to gain insight into Kant s ethical and religious ideas It s not a bad book just horribly wrong Along the same lines of his Critiue project Kant talks about religion and the limits of reason Kant says that in order to act freely we must have some power to ratify or reject ouresires Maxims allow us to accept or reject a given Another great surprise in my life found on another evening examining the aisles of an ancient indispensable library When it comes Tish Returns down to the mind breaking process of contemplating the ontology of religion this text is a feast for those put off by the current religiosity of atheism Don t tell me that nothing comes next Don t tell me what comes next Justrink wine with me atop a mountain and tell me what you ve seen And Accessories After the Fact don t youare ask for a Hadzics Textbook of Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management donation myonations are time cigars laughter peace and the other things the holiest of all next to the written word which the good woman in my life knows all about Have made a note to purchase the book Shipment in Too much The Chinaman damn work Must get to the sea Unto the Delaware River Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason Religion hereafter is a passionate statement of Kant s mature philosophy of religion As the title suggests Kant believes that religious experience is best understood through rationalism an important philosophical movement in the 18th 19th and 20th centuries that argues we know some things intuitively not through experience and that we canetermine certain absolute truths by relying on this intuitive knowledgeIn Religion Kant explores the legitimacy of religious experience He argues that organized religion often gets in the way of genuine religious experience thereby threatening the moral Inside Out development of humanity This argument spans four sectionsIn Part One Kantiscusses whether human nature is inherently evil or inherently good He thinks we have a predisposition to engage in good behavior which comes in three instinctual urges propagating the species fostering meaningful stable relationships with others and respecting the moral law Kant thinks that in addition to our inclination to be good we have a simultaneous propensity for evil or immoral behavior Kant suggests that we will see the truth of his thesis if we examine the evil abroad in the world around us The state of current political and social life will convince skeptics that people are in need of moral evelopmentIn Part Two Kant argues that it is possible for us to become morally good by following the example of Jesus Christ who resisted enticing temptations and by instituting a wholehearted change in behaviorIn Part Three Kant says it may be possible to create a society that fosters moral behavior Such a society would emulate the ideal church invisible an association of individuals committed to living morally upright lives Kant says that rituals and professions of faith are not

characters Å eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Immanuel KantO become an official member of the Methodist Church but the entire experience never touched me either emotionally or intellectually I understood that the underlying idea was to come together with others with the guiding principle to be kind to one another but the theology and the Bible appeared utterly archaic unbelievable and with no application to modern life Virgin birth Raising the An American Methodology dead Eternal life or eternalamnation It was nothing to me than a very elaborate fairy tale with an almost childish emphasis on threat and promise that said nothing at all about the real world I came away from it with no inclination to follow any religion and genuine puzzlement at how any intelligent person could be religious that is having a faith with no evidence to support itLittle The Elders Speak did I know that the 18th century had produced a maneeply concerned with religion being compatible with reason understandably so at a time when reason was sweeping all before it in a new appreciation of the world that produced undeniable provable laws of nature which religion over many centuries had been speaking of with no concrete understanding at all For the lack of anything to compete with it humanity accepted the tales of who and what we are that were told by unknown writers who texts were Dead Leaves declared god given Immanuel Kant attempted to address my inability to place religion in a rational world view 200 years before I was born and he makes an impressive case without ever bringing the supernatural into the picture I was all earsFor Kant undeniably a Christian and a Protestant there is only a single religion it is open to human beings by way of our innate ability to reason and it has as a foundation theuty of each individual to follow the moral law as a free choice with the goal of each one valuing all others and being valued by them This religion is timeless outside of history and universalThat s it No First Crossing: Stories About Teen Immigrants dogma no theology no clergy no established church Who could not be impressed uite a few who are invested in any one of the plurality of what we commonly call religion whoo not appreciate the specifics of their particular version of what they hold to be truth being called irrelevantThis multitude of religions Kant calls faiths A faith is local historical and tied to specific events As such none of them have universal appeal and all reuire beliefs to be held about why the world came to be Christianity being no exceptionKant says of a Learning Swift Programming deity that even if it exists there is no way that human beings can have any idea of the nature of such a thing let alone know what it wants This makes revelation meaningless Praise is pointless Going through routines to show obedience such asoing good The Nutcracker deeds or confessing or even going to churcho not earn salvation All of the elaborate liturgies houses of worship and aily religious habits such as prayer are theater but for one thing that they appeal to the common man for whom the abstract idea of uty to morality as the supreme good in itself cannot be grasped Thus we have the many ecclesiastical churches as Kant terms them with their sacred stories and characters that at their best can only point one in the The Ghost And The Sausage direction of the one universal church standing outside of timeThis is heady stuff but Kant s analysis of the Christian faith is marvelous Calling it the sole faithedicated to universal morality Kant proceeds to

to guide morality is not productive There is no one right reading of any part of the Bible but any part of the Bible can be made to show moral value through interpretation Attempting to see the Bible as a whole that must tie together without contradiction or even to be consistent as a prescription for behavior is impossible as is the belief that it is the word of a god Kant takes uotations from

Reason Kant Shield, 1967 didn t go to church Kant s agreement with the reason Jesus gave such advice is the reason and such is the nature of this bookIf you are not a Christian but have familiarity with the scriptures then Kant may make you reconsiderRather than go into a lecture on the subject of Kant s ethical religion see my article on the subject posted herein I am convinced that people who complain about Kant s philosophy who claim that his writing isry and that his thought consists in Dead And Buried detached intellectualizations with no real bearing on everyday human existence have never paid any attention to his work on religion In his Philosophical Doctrine of Religion as in his argument for moral faith in the postulates of the existence of God and the immortality of the soul Kant s writing is impassioned and edifying his subject matter profound and his concern of aistinctly existential character Perhaps nowhere is this true than in what is sometimes called the Parable of the Righteous Atheist in the Critiue of the Power of Judgment Here we find Kant struggling with the human need for significance the limits of human understanding and the need to reconcile our natural with our rational selves Religion Within the Limits of Mere Reason has largely been neglected as much by professional philosophers as by Kant scholars for the past two hundred years It has alternatively been Obsession 2 dismissed as a mere attempt to appease the religious authorities of his time lambasted as an incoherent mess incompatible with the rest of his critical philosophy or

book length treatise after a run in with the Prussian authorities The first two of these pieces are primarily concerned with uestions of individual salvation and so function as an extension of the critical moral philosophy In contrast the last two of which are broadly concerned with historical and social progress and are thus best understood as part of Kant s philosophy of history The first piece On the Radical Evil in Human Nature represents a secularization of the octrine of original sin Here Kant asks whether human beings are good or evil by nature Against the prevailing optimism of Enlightenment thinkers he claims that human beings are by nature fundamentally evil Although we have a isposition to the good he thinks that we are at the same time naturally corrupted by a propensity to evil This propensity is not to be identified with mere sensibility as the Stoics believed but rather When I Was a Kid designates a tendency on the part of the human will to subordinate the Moral Law to the motives of sensibility The uestion for him is thus how human beings can make themselves morally worthy or as he puts it here how they can make themselves well pleasing to God and restore the purity of their motives Thus phrased the uestion is not merely how one might change their behaviour but how one might undergo a change of heart In the second piece On the Struggle of the Good With the Evil Principle Kant maintains that the generaluty of humanity is to elevate itself to the ideal of moral perfection by undergoing just such a change of heart In his view we can conceive of such an ideal only through the idea of a person suffering through the worst trials and yet nonetheless vanuishing the temptation of the evil principle This idea of moral perfection which we cannot help but to think of as the Prototype of Humanity as God intended it is necessarily postulated by pure practical reason as a condition of possibility of moral conversion Only by practical faith in the Prototype of Humanity can we adopt for ourselves the good isposition and undergo the change of heart reuired if we are to become well pleasing to #GodThe third piece The Victory of the Good Principle and the Founding of a Kingdom of #third piece The Victory of the Good Principle and the Founding of a Kingdom of on Earth turns its attention from the individual to the social Kant maintains that even after a change of heart the moral convert is always in anger of falling again under the The Oxford Book of Twentieth-Century Ghost Stories domination of the evil principle through the corrupting influence of others It is therefore hisuty to extricate himself from this precarious situation In his view this can only be achieved by establishing what he calls an Ethical Community that is a society organized under freely adopted laws of virtue In Kant s view such a society will necessarily understand itself as ruled by a legislator whose commands are at the same time uties thus by God as moral sovereign of the universe Thus the concept of an Ethical Community is just the concept of a People of "God obeying moral laws which is to say that it is "obeying moral laws which is to say that it is concept of a Church Recalling the octrine of historical progress set forth in his essay on Perpetual Peace Kant argues that historical religious traditions contain a rive toward the universal religion of reason There is thus a continuous and gradual progress toward an ever expanding Ethical Community which we can understand as the coming of the Kingdom of God on earthThe fourth and "final piece On Service and Pseudoservice Under the Dominion of the Good Principle elaborates the relation between historical religious traditions "piece On Service and Pseudoservice Under the Dominion of the Good Principle elaborates the relation between historical religious traditions the pure rational religion Kant maintains that the administrators of a visible historical church serve also the invisible moral Church only when they tailor their teachings to the ictates of pure practical reason Similarly the exegesis of sacred texts must take its guidance from the Moral Law such that the stories and prescriptions found in scripture are never interpreted in such a way as to conflict with pure rational religion The point is not that religious authorities ought to modify the meaning of certain passages but that human reason is able to Lair of the Dragon discover moral truths and that moral truths as moral cannot possibly contradict the will of God Thus passages that appear to conflict with this will must be reframed Unlike say the Critiue of Pure Reason 1781 or the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals 1985 which remain in very large part philsoophically viable Religion Within the Boundaries of Mere Reason is obviously a product of its time Nonetheless it remains an indispensable read for anyone interested in the philosophy and sociology of religion A charitable reading of the book which highlights its historical value is that it constitutes one of the first attempts to outline a modernized religious faith that is a religious faith that remains plausible under modern conditions From this perspective Kant is an important precursor to modern theologians like Paul Tillich Hans K ng Elisabeth Sch ssler Fiorenza and Rudolf Bultmann Though scarcely plausible en bloc certain aspects of Kant s analysis have their merits even now For one interpretation of religion as satisfying moral and existential needs of human beings anticipates the sociological theories of Feuerbach and Durkheim and is corroborated by much contemporary psychology Similarly his conviction thatifferent faiths can adapt themselves to the same set of universal moral strictures is echoed in much liberal political theory most notably in John Rawls s concept of overlapping consensus Finally his harsh critiue of fundamentalism which he calls enthusiasm Schwarmerei is ever relevant in an age marked by increasing religious excesses Combined with the recent revival in scholarly interest in Kant s philosophy of religion this should remind us something here still speaks to us When I was a youngster I had to
