The metaphisics of sedentary life - The life of elements

Author(s): Ion Militaru
Subject(s): Philosophy

Keywords: Kant; biography; journey; metaphysics; philosophy; sedentary life;

Summary/Abstract: Kant’s celebrity was enhanced not only by his three critiques, but also by his lifestyle and biography. Over time, historians have emphasised Kant’s life as the most sedentary life that a philosopher has ever lived. Nonetheless, the author of the article argues that historians’ research was not sufficient. Behind Kant’s biography lies a true metaphysical principle that coordinated his life. A sedentary life is fundamentally metaphysical. What is the principle of such a life? The author attempts to shed some light over this enigmatic issue that historians have passed on without focusing on the principle that lied beneath it. The idea of this article is that Kant’s sedentary life revolves around a certain way in which he regarded the element as the metaphysical principle of life itself.
