Abstract

Kant's body offered a constant target for his own remarks, both in correspondence and during his lunchtime conversations. Several good descriptions of Kant's body have come down to us over the centuries, as well as a number of visual representations, but these are remarkably limited, given his stature in the world of ideas. A new description of Kant, written by a novelist who visited Kant while passing through Königsberg, has recently come to light. It is reproduced here – in English translation as well as the original German – and earlier descriptions of Kant are briefly recounted.
