Kant's "An Essay on the Maladies of the Mind" and Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime

Hypatia 15 (4):82 - 98 (2000)
Abstract
David-Ménard examines the problem of the genesis of Kant's moral philosophy. The separation between Kantian practical reason and the inclinations of sense which it regulates is shown by the author to originate in Kant's attempt to regulate his own tendency to hypochondria. Her argument links the themes from two of Kant's precritical works which attest to this tendency-"An Essay on the Maladies of the Mind" and Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime-to the final form of the critical philosophy
