He always walked at 15:30 so that the ladies could adjust their clock to the right time.

Also he only decided to dedicate himself to philosophy after he was 39 when he realized he was mature enough. Things that only true meisters do.
Thanks for the biographical background. I am especially enlightened by the fact that he was a Taurus.

When he realized an english guy called David Hume and other people said that we could determine all rules by rationalism and by the experience, he decided it was needed to put things into perspective and said that without the human sensibility, things wouldnt exist by their own. Which means, in other words, that Kant was some kind of humanist, he was afraid that human people were considering that things in the universe were defining how the universe is rather than human experience. In this sense he inspired the romantism of the XIX century without forgetting true science.
What did he say about humans being an end and not just a means or whatever and what does that mean? What does he say about freedom? Do you want to write my essay for me?

Also Kant thought that society would be better if anyone could act in a way they wanted that all humans acted. So its just an extension of the christian law: do to the others what you want them to do for yourselves.
Yeah you're right, the categorical imperative is rather Christian. What does "categorical imperative" even mean?

For example, when AJ says I am boring with my philosophy, he is not following Kant, because I could say that his love for Slovenja is boring aswell, and we would both not following Kants imperative.
We should all follow Hobbes.
