Immanuel Kant was one of the most, if not the most, profound philosophical thinkers in the history of Western Philosophy. In fact, much of the history of philosophy today is divided into pre- and post-Kantian. Such was the legacy Kant bestowed on the world of philosophy that the origins of both the Analytical and Continental branches of philosophy can be traced back to him. His ethical philosophy was equally as fundamental and his deontology, the importance of our will, intentions and motivations, represents a stark contrast to the consequentialism of Utilitarianism.
In this recording of a live online talk, Andreas Wasmuht investigates the man, the cultural context and his philosophy and lasting influence on philosophy to the present day.
