By: Dr. Immanuel Kant; Daniel Fidel Ferrer, Translator

Kant wrote: "A pure reason faith is the guide or compass, which the speculative thinker based on his rational quarreling (Vernunftstreifereien) in the field of supersensible objects, man of common but (morally) sound reason but his way, and probably in theoretical as practical point of view, the whole purpose of his may prefigure determination entirely appropriate, and it is this rational faith, which must be placed at the foundation of every other faith, yes every revelation (Offenbarung)."

Answer the Question: What is Enlightenment?

By: Immanuel Kant, Dr.; Daniel Fidel Ferrer, Translator

Essay translated from German to English by Daniel Fidel Ferrer in August 2013. Original publication of Immanuel Kant's essay in German: By Immanuel Kant. "Beantwortung der Frage: Was ist Aufklarung?" in Berlinische Monatsschrift Book. 4, 12. December, 1784), pages 481-494.

Kant wrote in 1784 in the first part of his essay: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one understanding without guidance from another. Self-incurred is this tutelage when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but rather of resolve and courage to use it without direction from another. Sapere Aude! [Latin translated: Dare to know, from Horace]. Have courage to use your own mind! Thus is the motto of Enlightenment."

Trialogue between Heidegger, Nietzsche, and Nagarjuna in Todtnauberg

By: Daniel Fidel Ferrer, Mr.

Dialogue format between three great philosophers. Two German and one Buddhist monk from 200 AD India.

Nāgārjuna talks directly to Martin Heidegger. Martin, you had Parmenides and impossibility of thinking of non-Being.

Philosophical Aphorisms: Critical Encounters with Heidegger and Ni...

By: Daniel Fidel Ferrer, Mr.

Experiment with the Philosophical Aphorism. Following Nietzsche's methodology and ambition, I want to say in this "book" more than anyone else said anywhere at any time. The key insight was in ascertaining Nietzsche's depth and understanding of the methodology of aphorisms. All of the great philosophers Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, Schelling, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger uniquely and creatively altered the very nature of philosophy through the fundamental and ra...
