Abstract

This article has two intentions. First, to clarify the fundamental evil that Kant, and said that this concept can not be harmonized with the will. If Kant insisted that human nature can not be eradicated with the fundamental human evil, it is difficult to simultaneously adhere to the will as practical reason has complete freedom, and overcome the evil and return to good. Furthermore, the fundamental evil that Kant actually implicitly means a kind of man can not grasp and understanding of the first evil, that is, Augustine's concept of original sin means that those who symbolically; study very short, but the fundamental evil that continuation of the traditional Christian speech about the evil of a philosophical statement. If so, then return to the good hope not just a moral task, it is a religion or belief task; CD by beyond assistance if we can completely abandon evil to good.
