CUBO UGARTE, ÓSCAR. Corporality and Life in Kant's Critical Philosophy. Ideas y Valores [online]. 2010, vol.59, n.143, pp. 109-122. ISSN 0120-0062.
The purpose of this paper is to examine the paramount role played by the feeling of pleasure and the feeling of life (Lebensgefühl) in the Critique of Judgement. It argues that dealing with these issues furthers the study conducted by Kant in his first two Critiques on the theoretical and the practical subject, and allows us to understand the vital background in which transcendental subjectivity exists factically. Finally, it shows that in the case of the human being, subjectivity cannot be understood in isolation from its intimate connection to the body.
