Legendary German philosopher Immanuel Kant, father of the Categorical Imperative, was born on April 22, 1724. To celebrate his birthday, here’s a witty and illuminating 3-minute digest of his life’s work from the wonderful Three-Minute Philosophy series.
For a deeper dive into Kant, try Susan Stuart’s free Kant lectures on iTunesU (thanks, Dan) or the excellent anthology Kant’s Critiques: The Critique of Pure Reason, The Critique of Practical Reason, The Critique of Judgement.
