Platon und Kant


Ferber, Rafael (2010). Platon und Kant. In: Neschke-Hentschke, Ada. Argumenta in Dialogos Platonis. Teil 1: Platoninterpretation und ihre Hermeneutik von der Antike bis zum Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts, Akten des Internationalen Symposions vom 27.-29. April 2006 im Instituto Svizzero di Roma, Schwabe, Basel 2010, 371-390. Basel: Schwabe, 371-390.

Abstract

The first part of the paper (p. 373-376) analyses the passage A314/B371 of Kant’s "Critique of Pure Reason" by subdividing it into three sentences. This analysis shows that Kant is not an “intentionalist” who tries to discover the intentio auctoris, that is, the meaning which Plato gives to his expression “idea”. He is, rather, a constructivist who constructs in his own mind the meaning of the expression “idea”. Hereby Kant tries to understand Plato better than Plato understood himself. The second part (p. 376-384) analyses Kant’s discussion of Schlosser’s translation with comments of Plato’s "Seventh Letter" and its philosophical digression (342a-344d). The third part (p. 384-387) asks a philosophical question concerning two methods in Plato, the method of the Socratic elenchos, or the method of the “second best voyage” (Phd.99c), and the method of intuition. The method of the “second best voyage” is also compared with the method of rowing. The method of intuition is compared with the method of the sailing boat. Finally, the question is asked: How do we get from the rowing boat into the sailing boat? Or: how do we get from the elenchos to the intuition of truth?
