Kant's Two Great Discoveries and Their Contemporary Significance

Zhang Tingguo;  
For the reason of his critique on pure reason and practical reason, Kant's biggest theoretical contribution lies in two great discoveries: One is the thought about "the human being's legislation for nature", the other is about"the human being's legislation for himself". The first discovery enables him to draw a clear boundary between acknowledge and faith. Thus he provides a metaphysical foundation for the scientific acknowledge and meanwhile keeps room for the faith. The second discovery lies in his establishment of the absolute necessity and universal validity of "categorical imperative", this fundamentally distinguishes his ethic from utilitarian and hedonic ethics. So far, this two great discoveries are not out of date, but rather have their contemporary significance in the age of globalization.
