Hvor stor er forskellen?
The article deals with the view on (the cognition of) nature in Immanuel Kant and Knud E. Løgstrup, on the occasion of the recent new publication of Løgstrup's book on Kant's critique of knowledge and reflection. It is argued that regarding bot concepts there are stronger similarities between the two philosophers than is usually supposed. As to knowledge, Løgstrup retains a transcendental view, transformed into the philosophy and language, yet rejecting Kant's theory of perception. Also, Løgstrup agrees in claiming the necessity of metaphysics for ethics. As to reflection - more precisely nature as thought of by reflective judgement - Løgstrup again agrees with Kant taking the concept of self-regulation to be necessary. Finally, both Løgstrup and Kant think of humans as being ends in themselves.
