udvalgte dele af Løgstrups kritik af Kant
Løgstrup scholars have long discussed whether Løgstrup's critique of Kant constitutes a farewell to transcendental thinking or only a revision of it. In order to present Løgstrup's critique of what is called the ‘epistemological delusion', the article argues that Løgstrup's own work on philosophy of language and perception is an existential transcendental philosophy similar to the philosophy of Hannah Arendt. The article demonstrates that the immediate, bodily and imaginative perception of other people's emotional attitudes constitute a necessary element of all ethical understanding. It systematically describes the immediate and emotional understanding of others as the ability to be moved and even moved to change, and taking a historical perspective, it points out that the immediate and sensuous ‘reading' of other people's attitude is a continuing feature of Løgstrup's work from the early work on Scheler's ethics in 1940 to the readings of Kant's third Critique from the 1960s.
