Kantian cleverness

by Limbic on August 28, 2002

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. Dare to know!* “Have courage to use your own understanding!”–that is the motto of enlightenment.- Kant

* Sapere Aude!
