Teleological judgment and instrumental reason in Kant and Horkheimer: From critical philosophy to philosophical criticism

    Abstract

    Early in his career, Max Horkheimer occupied himself twice with Kant's "Critique of judgment". In both cases he focussed on Kant's teleology, not his aesthetics. The article takes at the question, whether there is a connection between Horkheimer's early occupation with "the critique of teleological judgment" and his later "Critique of instrumental reason". There is, but not a very direct connection.
