Kant ‘psicoterapeuta morale’: le malattie dell’anima tra antropolo­gia, psicologia ed etica (2017)


Kant’s anthropological thought opens ethics to the world through the analysis and motivation of human action. From this perspective, the subject of affection, feelings and their possible deviance leads to a complex relationship between morality, anthropology and psychology. Disorders related to the capacity for desire are among the diseases of the spirit. Though emotions and passions are very different, both exclude the rule of reason, but while the former are only a momentary insult to freedom, the latter find their satisfaction in slavery. Through his ethical-anthropological-psychological analysis, Kant emphasizes the concept of worldly wisdom, of which he highlights the link between humanitas and ethics, which he wants to maintain at all costs. Ethics is viewed on a human scale, in which the use of prudence and wisdom, as a barrier to degenerate forms of virtue, is understood as the self-preparation and education of man to look after his ego, towards acting above all in a way that ensures an independent existence.
