300 Years of Kant

Immanuel Kant Illustration by Antje Herzog

Kant’s work is considered to be the pinnacle of Enlightenment philosophy. The philosopher was born in Königsberg, now Kaliningrad, in 1724. His maxim that we should use our reason seems more relevant and pressing today than ever before. What lessons can we learn from Kant? Where did Kant fail in his endeavours? What are the abysses and darker sides of the Enlightenment? This is what our Kant special is all about.
