CASTRO HERNANDEZ, Juan Carlos. A philosophy of body in Kant?: An aesthetic-antropologica approximation. Prax. filos. [online]. 2009, n.28, pp. 169-180. ISSN 0120-4688.

By the other hand it is important to consider the restrictions established by the moral philosophy in this aspect. Taken in consideration both horizons the functions such as sensibility and the corporality, are presented as subordinated to the theoretic understanding and to the practice reason. The purpose of this article is designed to point out the roll of the first order that both faculties had to the understanding of the total human existence. Therefore, some of the Kantians considerations offered to its anthropology in a pragmatic way, as well as its philosophical esthetic, come to reveal the high value that both phenomena have of its philosophy
