From The Globe And Mail:
- This year, Germans celebrated the 200th anniversary of the death of Immanuel Kant, reports Philosophy Now magazine. “Kant has traditionally been portrayed as a dutiful ascetic moralist — in other words, as rather a bore — but according to the three new biographies, the great metaphysician was not such a square after all. He enjoyed drinking wine, playing billiards and wearing fine, colourful clothes. On occasion, Kant drank so much red wine that he was unable to find his way home, the books claim.”
What amazes me is not that Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable, but I still can’t believe that a magazine called “Philosophy Now” actually exists.
Maybe it’s because I’ve never seen a copy of it.
