Idealism on Identity - Dictionary of Arguments
Identity/Idealism/Adorno: I refer to the essence of idealism and also to the idealistic side in Kant as a thought of identity, that is, the thinking, which believes that everything that is can be deduced from a unified principle.
What is decisive is that this uniform principle must always be a subject, even if it is also in a fluctuating sense. Identity thinking actually means to demand for as much as the primacy of subjectivity._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
