Chapter Summary

This preliminary material of the book Sublime and its Teology contains the table of contents and foreword. The book shows in what way the Kantian legacy on The Critique of the Power of Judgment (CPJ) is still a main stream of inspiration for contemporary thinking, either in line with Kant or by overcoming his primary impetus for a modern philosophy of freedom in a critical reception. The author argues that the Kantian sublime offers a view of the intelligible although this explicitly is not reducible to nature and nature does not elevate itself to the supersensible. It may be so that the opposition between nature and reason cannot be sublated as it is in Hegel because a dialectic transition from the imagination to reason is impossible; nonetheless we recognize a realization of the mechanics of nature at a higher level (teleology).
