In this sense he inspired the romantism of the XIX century without forgetting true science.

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.

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.
Are you telling me, you seriously believe, that the position of some randomly chosen agglomerations of hydrogen and helium gas some 10 000 000 000 000 000's km away had character-forming powers when Kants body left his mothers womb?! If so, what would the explanation of the causal link between Kants nature and said agglomerations of gas look like?

Thanks for the biographical background. I am especially enlightened by the fact that he was a Taurus.

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?

Yeah you're right, the categorical imperative is rather Christian. What does "categorical imperative" even mean?

We should all follow Hobbes.

It's actually very simple what I said. Delivered in a Brazilian or French accent the ramblings become deep and meaningful, if it was done in an English, Australian or American then it's full of shit.

The above doesn't need Heidegger, Kirkegaard, Jung, Klima or Žižek to work that out.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

If I say:

In MTF is prohibited to wish death on Kudryavtsev because it disrupts the peace of the forum, then you are just using humanity as a mean to achieve peace.

But if you say in MTF is prohibited to wish death on Dasnieres de Veigy because those feelings are wrong and show the poster doesnt have a human heart, than you are using humanity as an end.

I take this as you admitting to talk non-sense, Kant would disapprove.

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

Not really.

Astrology is still a better way to understand other people using archetypes than Jung ever imagined.

Even if you cant discover how someone is you still can have lots of fun in the process.

And get some girls ofc.

' I heard you have venus in scorpio. As soon as I realized this I knew you were too sexy even for a God to handle"

Ok that was lame. If you consider Venus was a goddess born from Uranus testicles, probably.

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

that archetypes used in astrology are based on vague, ambiguous, and general statements that could relate to anything. it has already been proven to be a pseudoscience, and really has no merit to guide someone life or behaviour.
