FOUCAULT: Introduction to Kant's Anthropology (1961)- The MIT Press

Foucault’s previously unpublished doctoral dissertation on Kant offers the definitive statement of his relationship to Kant and to the critical tradition of philosophy.

MUST,
em UK e tudo. Saido há coisa de 1 ano 😉 : “This introduction and
commentary to Kant’s least discussed work, Anthropology from a
Pragmatic Point of View,is the dissertation that Michel Foucault presented in 1961 as his doctoral thesis. It has remained unpublished, in any language, untilnow. In his exegesis and criti…cal interpretation of Kant’s Anthropology,Foucault raises the question of the relation between psychology and anthropology, and how they are affected by time.

Through a Kantian”critique of the anthropological slumber,” Foucault warns against the dangers of treating psychology as a new metaphysics, explores the possibilities of studying man empirically, and reflects on the natureof time, art and technique, self-perception, and language. ExtendingKant’s suggestion that any empirical knowledge of man is inextricablytied up with language, Foucault asserts that man is a world citizen insofar as he speaks. For both Kant and Foucault, anthropology concerns not the human animal or self-consciousness but, rather, involves the questioning of the limits of human knowledge and concrete existence.”
