Kant and the Bible 2

The graph (developed by Luca Valzesi [] with the assistance of Valerio Pellegrini [] as designer) represents, in the Kant's practical work, in one hand the occurrence of words that suggest the interest of Kant for the Scriptures, and in the other the specific Kant’s references. The works under consideration are the main works of practical philosophy, politics and philosophy of religion, in order to show the deep-rooted need for self-comparison with the Sacred Books in Kant’s moral philosophy. In the outer orbit, then, Kantians references were divided according to the book which belong in order to point out Kant's actual preferences in the Bible reading.

The final aim of this graphic is to provide a synoptic view of the attention that Kant has proved to have in respect of specific steps of the Sacred Scripture. Since it was realized, that there is an ongoing Kant’s confrontation with the Bible, in fact, it can have a good utility a mathematician date who show the actual preference in the Kantian reading of the Bible. As for the graphic design, it should be noted that the size of each epicycle is directly proportional to the number of occurrences of the word.
