Manifesto, a brief section

Kant says that "happiness is an ideal not of reason but of imagination." (35, Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals)


From what I understand, the essentialist bastard didn't really privilege happiness. Somewhere -- in a somewhat-parallel universe or in some concept of heaven -- he and Rorty are having a heated debate over contingency.

At least that's how I'd like to imagine reality.
