Life/Kant/Schulte: Kant’s philosophy knows no death, no life, no procreation (sexuality) - the basic of life must be different, because reason has nothing to do with sexuality.
Life/sense/Kant: the question "What is life" fails fundamentally when faced to the question "Who am I?". - I can never be entirely an object for myself - from the freedom of the subject follows that a reasonable person would be accepted as the ultimate end - the same would be ridiculous when I was alone; and everyone would be for himself. - This solipsism is unavoidable even for Kant._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
