In addition to his famous theoretical works on cognitive powers, moral principles and the power of judgment, Kant has studied man from a historical and pragmatic point of view.
Kant's anthropology, wich he calls pragmatic, consists of special doctrines and recommendations that I attempt to describe and assessment some of them in this aricle to We will know in this inquiry that Kant have believed the man is difficult subject for studying and have insisted on discourse to fortify his cosmopolition approach in anthropology. Is man good in nature or evil? Who must teach the man? These are a number of matters that Kant's view on them have explained and assessmented in the essay. Finally I present a few critical remarks on Kant's anthropological principles and views.
