Die äußere Schaale der Natur Eine Fußnote zum Versuch über die Krankheiten des Kopfes (1764)

Pedro Jesús Teruel
From the journal Kant-Studien

Abstract: In this paper we examine the issues of the 1764 published essay – specially of its third section – which help us to reconstruct Kant’s position in the mind-body problem. The philosopher explores here the roots of pathological diseases and refers to a theory, exposed by Johann August Unzer in the weekly Der Arzt, which relates the Kantian point of view with the contemporary Functionalism in Philosophy of Mind. In this way we are pursuing a train of thought previously not taken into account in the Kantian research.
