カントとコミュニズム

"In the context of a capitalist economy where people treat each other merely as a means to an end, the Kantian "kingdom of freedom" or "kingdom of ends" clearly comes to entail another new meaning, that is, communism. If we think about it, from the beginning, communism could not have been conceptualized without the moral moment inherent in Kant's thinking. Unfortunately and unfairly, however, Kantian Marxism has been eclipsed by history."(KARATANI, Kojin, Transcritique)
 この主張にいかほどの説得力があるのかは、まだ読み始めたばかりで判断はできない。しかし頭のどこかで二つのシナプスがカチンと繫がったような刺激を受けた。楽しく読み続けられそうな予感がする。
