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.

thoughts (and diagrams!) on kant and caughey's similar cosmologies to come after the latter finishes her paper on ramakrishna.
