God, soul, free will

August 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Who cares if God exists?

This discussion, e.g. the claims about reality versus perception, is very much a case of watered down Kantianism. The issue is simple: the questions of god, soul, and free will, are insoluble, but rearise at all points as inescapable metaphysical entities. We can approach them in ways that are not standard forms of knowledge, to some degree. We can infer about them in larger contexts. The Kantian critique can help to maintain these concepts even as their metaphysical issues arise to haunt us.
