Kant was wrong in many ways, but is still an important philosopher, in that he needs to be
held accountable for his negative influence on modern Western society.

"Immanuel Kant is the real evil of our age, the villain of European history."
philosopher Ayn Rand [1905-82]

"[Kant's philosophy is] not for the faint-hearted but it's riches are vast." — Amazon reviewer (2012)
