Kant? In comparison to Socrates, Spinoza, Augustinus and Plato? Not my opinion. :-)
Without doubt, deeper and influential even today
Immanuel Kant was the paradigmatic philosopher of the European Enlightenment. He eradicated the last traces of the medieval worldview from modern philosophy, joined the key ideas of earlier rationalism and empiricism into a powerful model of the subjective origins of the fundamental principles of both science and morality, and laid the ground for much in the philosophy of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
I really hate Kant...but lets not get that debate started.
I never understood why people use the word 'hate' so easily. You can disagree with him, yes. You can even think you know better, but hate?? Why?
Because his philosophy led to great evil.
Fine, but maybe it is better to give him an answer in that case, instead of hating him? Isn't that just weak? No offence, but it is an easy way out, isn't it?
Of course, I'm just a woman, how would I know, right
Its a whole nuther thread longer than this one. But what he claimed was reason, was faith, with no real morality, and the evolution of it led many astray including the justification for the holocaust. I mentioned earlier that Ayn Rand (female) was my favorite philosopher. You can read her take on Kant to get my opinion as well.
I was already familiar with the nutty idea that Nietzche phylosophy provided a justification for the Holocaust, but Kant???, really, are we into mushrooms?. Can we also blame Darwin for Nazi eugenics?
It's not direct, but his fundamental errors are found in most modern philosophies.
So, had he errors? I guess he was human
Isaac Newton also had errors, how not?, still he is the father of modern science
Kant had such an influence in Nazism that Soviets (who had the most important role in defeating Nazism) took care of conserving his legacy.
Kant's tomb is today in a mausoleum adjoining the northeast corner of Königsberg Cathedral in what is now known as Kaliningrad, Russia. The mausoleum was constructed by the architect Friedrich Lahrs and was finished in 1924 in time for the bicentenary of Kant's birth. Originally, Kant was buried inside the cathedral, but in 1880 his remains were moved outside and placed in a neo-Gothic chapel adjoining the northeast corner of the cathedral. Over the years, the chapel became dilapidated before it was demolished to make way for the mausoleum, which was built on the same spot, where it is today.
The tomb and its mausoleum are some of the few artifacts of German times preserved by the Soviets after they conquered and annexed the city. Today, many newlyweds bring flowers to the mausoleum.
Artifacts previously owned by Kant, known as Kantiana, were included in the Königsberg City Museum. However, the museum was destroyed during World War II.
A replica of the statue of Kant that stood in German times in front of the main University of Königsberg building was donated by a German entity in the early 1990s and placed in the same grounds.
After the expulsion of Königsberg's German population at the end of World War II, the historical University of Königsberg where Kant taught was replaced by the Russian-speaking Kaliningrad State University, which took up the campus and surviving buildings of the historic German university. In 2005, that Russian-speaking university was renamed Immanuel Kant State University of Russia in honour of Kant. The change of name was announced at a ceremony attended by President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of Germany, and the university further formed a Kant Society, dedicated to the study of Kantianism.
I have a thought on that..maybe they are too busy feeding your lazy azzyes while you sttin at the pc playing your games..OR hm..let me think..maybe they are too busy taking care of the house, bETWEEN moves, or caring for babies.
OH ..lets add..perhaps they have more brains to waste so much time playing a dang game while other issues need to be taken care of.
By the way, answering the OP, women biology are different from male, brain is not a exception
By Amber Hensley
The differences between women and men are not only well-documented, but frequently at the heart of jokes, anecdotes, and good-natured (and not so good-natured) ribbing. Experts have discovered that there are actually differences in the way women’s and men’s brains are structured and in the way they react to events and stimuli. So the next time your wife, boyfriend, or parent starts telling you how you should have done something differently, then refer back to these big differences between men’s and women’s brains.
@PhoenixTTD - First off, thank you for taking the time to answer so many posts. I've tried before, and it can be a daunting task. Also, thank you for writing more clearly on your views. This is much better than your previous objection which sounded like your only rebuttle is "they're different."I won't be quoting from all of your responses, and may have to cut specific sentences from them, since there isn't a multiquote function, and whole quotes also take up much space.That is a good list for the the negative impact on men's choices. I disagree with the part about the "original sin" though. I doubt a good portion of men had ever considered the impact of what men in past generations had done. I also doubt many women would blame every single man for that problem, as i believe many would would treat the person as an individual, and not directly responsible for what previous people of their gender had done. This also means there is less reason for the "original sin" idea mentioned.After looking at the list again, i also disagree with the reason men commit serious crimes. The only crime that comes to mind which seems to fit is theft because the husband couldn't provide for the family. However, i don't think it's a common occurance. That is a horrible list for the women's point of view. We've already discussed the lack of education which i believe you agreed with. Women were also dependent on men for survival because men were the 'breadwinners.' It's one reason wives had trouble leaving abusive husbands. There was nowhere to go, and without a source of income, it would seem to them that their life was at an end. They not only had to think of themselves, but their children. Simply staying with the abusive husband provided a better life for their children. A husband's suicide also affected the wife, because she depended on him for support.To sum it up, i would say it is mainly more stress which leads to an earlier death being the main negative impact for men. For women it would be a lack of freedom. It seems to be quantity vs. quality. The quantity being a few years less of life vs. a lifetime with little options, and being dependent on men for support."You cannot argue the lack of female genius is due to society against them."No, you missed my point. The lack of female geniuses is due to there being a lack of higher education to fully develop their potential.Actually, yes, i can argue that. If women were dependent on men for support because the men are the ones in the work force, there was no reason to reach their full potential. What use was there to become a genius when the jobs went to the men? It's possible, and i don't doubt there were parents that discouraged their daughters from pursuing a higher education. From their perspective, it would be a bad investment, when ultimately she would end up a housewife."Women can get any type of job."Yes, through the progress women have made. However, there are still problems. If you recall in the article, the male was recommended with a higher pay."It still does not explain the results we see because the mistreatment is not universal or as close to universal as male domination in elite performances."I think it's pretty close to universal. Most if not all achievements can be divided into either being physical or mental. Physically, i don't think many would dispute men's performance in this area. Mental, as i have tried to explain, women were held back from reaching their full potential. Also, even if there were some that could, the explanation that there were more men in the field meant there were more men in the extremes."I am in no way arguing that women should be given less opportunity than men."However, that was what you were doing when you mentioned people shouldn't bother offering girls a chance to learn and play chess because in general, they showed no interest.
@ Sunshiny, I was not referring to you when talking about misandry. Plus it wasn't a comment that should be taken literally. Just that it seems you are a jerk if you have a different opinion that women lobby ;)
Thanks Pdela. That was easy enough.
...Gotta get deeper.... Why don't women play? ...or is just because men being stronger decided women shouldn't play for no reason and a few generations of freedom have not fixed it yet?
Before you get too deep, you must master the shallow - there is no indication that men are stronger, only that they have better results. Whether you admit it or not, that premise shines through all your many paragraphs.
Please use the "quote" feature more judiciously.
