Immanuel Kant Quotes

Laziness and cowardice explain why so many men. . . remain under a life-long tutelage and why it is so easy for some men to set themselves up as the guardians of all the rest. . . If I have a book which understands for me, a pastor who has a conscience for me, a doctor who decides my diet, I need not trouble myself. If I am willing to pay, I need not think. Others will do it for me.

Immanuel Kant

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.

By a lie, a man… annihilates his dignity as a man.

Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.

Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.

Always treat people as ends in themselves, never as means to an end.

Immanuel Kant

So act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world.

Immanuel KantImmaturity is the incapacity to use one’s intelligence without the guidance of another.

For how is it possible, says that acute man, that when a concept is given me, I can go beyond it and connect with it another which is not contained in it, in such a manner as if that latter necessarily belonged to the former?

Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.

Immanuel Kant

He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.

Immanuel KantParents usually educate their children merely in such a manner than however bad the world may be, they may adapt themselves to its present conditions. But they ought to give them an education so much better than this, that a better condition of things may thereby be brought about by the future.

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.

Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them.

Immanuel Kant

Space and time are the framework within which the mind is constrained to construct its experience of reality.

Democracy is necessarily despotism, as it establishes an executive power contrary to the general will; all being able to decide against one whose opinion may differ, the will of all is therefore not that of all: which is contradictory and opposite to liberty.

The greatest human quest is to know what one must do in order to become a human being.

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.

Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes

Immanuel Kant

Every man is to be respected as an absolute end in himself; and it is a crime against the dignity that belongs to him as a human being, to use him as a mere means for some external purpose.

It is never too late to become reasonable and wise.

If you punish a child for being naughty, and reward him for being good, he will do right merely for the sake of the reward; and when he goes out into the world and finds that goodness is not always rewarded, nor wickedness always punished, he will grow into a man who only thinks about how he may get on in the world, and does right or wrong according as he finds advantage to himself.

I shall never forget my mother, for it was she who planted and nurtured the first seeds of good within me. She opened my heart to the lasting impressions of nature; she awakened my understanding and extended my horizon and her percepts exerted an everlasting influence upon the course of my life.

Feminine traits are called weaknesses. People joke about them; fools ridicule them; but reasonable persons see very well that those traits are just the tools for the management of men, and for the use of men for female designs.

Give a man everything he wants and at that moment everything is not everything

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance. Dare to know!

Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, never merely as a means to an end, but always at the same time as an end.

The two great dividers are religion and LANGUAGE

Often war is waged only in order to show valor; thus an inner dignity is ascribed to war itself, and even some philosophers have praised it as an ennoblement of humanity, forgetting the pronouncement of the Greek who said, ‘War is an evil in as much as it produces more wicked men than it takes away.’

Science is organized Knowledge, Wisdom is organized life.

Immanuel Kant

“Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life” .This is quote by ” Immanuel Kant”.
Science since civilization evolved from iron to nuclear weapon today. Science is not hit and trial method. It is complete structure evolve through lots of experiments, research, dynamic analysis,view things from different aspects and perspective, and so on. Wisdom evolve through circumstances. Wisdom is not about a just single moment that you can apply for whole life. it gradually grows day by day with experiences. Wisdom makes life’s smooth if applied with positive sense otherwise negative aspects can ruin life. It is likely to be said that science knowledge and wisdom are interdependent.For example atom bomb if thrown like on Hiroshima on every country then Mars and Earth has no difference only inert gases remain on both places.

Recently dengue,Zika virus,Chikungunya, malaria are epedemic in many countries, here need organised science to counter diseases. Scientist succeed in devising many technology one of them is “wolbachia technology” it is about ades Mosquito suppression strategy to reduce population of mosquito which is main reason for dengue, zika like serious diseases.Many countries adopted this technology like USA, China, Canada, now India also started its initiative to adopt it.

India is only country in the world where trans-country river water sharing agreement was signed in peaceful manner, like between India and Pakistan.It is not easy with neighbor like Pakistan who changes his commitment on every second day but this is all about wisdom and intellectual minds strategy which keep both nation with sufficient water. Recently India also solve ” Land Swap Agreement with Bangladesh” it shows that from small problems to big problem like this can resolve just with right mind sets, judicious nature, optimal course of actions and so on.

Science and wisdom both compliment each other and interdependent. Wisdom sometimes bring new thoughts, ideas, environment, that evolve science for example since Romans, Indus civilization science of perfect construction gradually grows to driver less taxi in Singapore.People need new technology to over come many hurdles like health, economy,environment, climate issues, global warming, sustainable developments, education,medical, sports,sanitation, drinking water, agriculture, aerospace, etc. issues to make life less painful. New technology not all eliminate these all problems but also create eco-friendly environment which is need of time today. Now every country talk about climate change and global warming issues because to save planet for future generation. All worries comes from insight, wisdom, knowledge, experience, facts and data, here science is perfect tool to fight all worries of the planet, with a positive attitude of wisdom.

Today science and wisdom need in combination to make society prosperous. Like social welfare schemes are meant to lift poor, provide food to them, free insurance, medical facilities, sanitation, drinking water etc. For example Ujjwala , Unnat, eradication of open defection practice under Swach Bharat schemes, Janani Suraksha, Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, JAM trinity, DBT, Pahal, agriculture insurance etc. In these all schemes science like IT is prevalent to provide benefits with less corruption.It is wisdom of the politicians or government to empower society. “Start up and Stand Up India ” both are example to bring new entrepreneurs in the growth of economy. India is home to 65 percent youth populations, every year 1 crore work force ready for job. If science exceeds wisdom means science progress more than wisdom in the society then these one crore work force will not employed fully and may enter in different world where people always desire to earn in short cut ways. This will led to criminalization in the society.

Wisdom is necessary to provide good education in the country like India where still to access education is not easy.Now days many companies, website, schools. universities provide distance learning education, good material, online tutorial, videos, etc. Education is only tool in India to eradicate widespread discrimination in the society in the name of sex, caste, religion, and creed. More emphasis is required on girl child education who faces hurdles to access it due to patriarchal society.Now organised science established good platform to access education from any where through internet. For example Project Loon and Digital India project.

There some incident in the world when science without wisdom take place.For example World war I, II, Syrian, Iraq, Libyan wars, cold war, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, recent testing of atom bomb by North Korea, etc. It happens because advance science create a environment of egoist nature, which underestimate wisdom. For example Just on technology, suspicious angle USA bombarded Iraq, now life there is crumbling and USA saying sorry for mistakes, thousands of people left home and killed in drone attacks. Wisdom behind to develop weapons was to protect humanity from giant animals but now it change to protect person from another person. Science should be evolve in balancing way so it will not become problem for the society. Robotic arms, automation, production machines, big power loom, all these advancement led to increase the production with cost effective ways but at the same time make people job less who increase the figure of poverty.If science develops just for profit intention then it will surely ruin society as we see how industrial now become headache for small island like Marshall, Indonesia, Maldives, who are on the verge to submerge into the sea because of global warming and uncertain climate changes.

Now like sustainable development is viable for eco friendly development in the same way science and wisdom are required in combination.Today demand is of high nutritious food for children and pregnant women.For example mid meal, food security schemes, antodaya. Wisdom can organised science to be productive for the society. The saddest aspects of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers. This will cause chaos in the society, disorder, unstability, increase poverty and more problems. Science can gives us knowledge but philosophy gives wisdom. Wisdom alone science of other sciences. Science has brought us power and ideas but not the wisdom or responsibility to handle them. Solar energy, wind energy, AYUSH,SDGs, Paris Summit, earth hour,clean energy all are the best combination of science with wisdom in positive aspects always take society ahead.
