Statements by the governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alikhanov about the influence of Immanuel Kant on the Ukrainian conflict do not mean introducing restrictions on the study of the philosopher’s works. The regional government reported this to the publication Podem.
“There was an expert discussion, it was an opinion, a vision of some of Kant’s works and their influence on historical processes. There can be no talk of any restrictions. It’s just that, as old Kant used to say, you must always have the courage to use your own mind, including when reading the works of the great philosopher,” the message says.
The government noted that Alikhanov tried to convey the same idea, so you should listen to his speech in full and form your own opinion. Kant’s works largely shaped the socio-political thought of Western countries, which is why the philosopher was mentioned in the context of that discussion, regional authorities added.
Earlier, the head of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov, during a speech at a congress of political scientists in Svetlogorsk, said that Immanuel Kant is directly related to the conflict in Ukraine, since he laid the foundation for German classical philosophy, and his teachings cut off the people from higher values and led to the emergence of a controversial social cultural situation.
