Document from the year 2009 in the subject Law - Philosophy, History and Sociology of Law, University of Vienna (Institut für Rechtsphilosophie, Religions- und Kulturrecht), course: Anton Wilhelm AMO vs Immanuel KANT ? - Rassismus und Arroganz bei KANT et al, language: English, abstract: Who was Anton Wilhelm AMO ? Was KANT a 'saint'? Is KANT 'trustworthy'? Was DE LAS CASAS 'trustworthy'? These questions arose when one of my former colleagues, Prof Dr Martin SPITZER voiced a critical question with respect to DE LAS CASAS in one of his highly interesting courses. It was not only SPITZER but also the wish to send my dead relative Em Prof Dr Kurt SCHUBERT who founded the departement for Jewish Studies at the University of Vienna a 'message' about the importance of being critical about basically all too often quite 'convergently' presented (pseudo-)facts e.g. with respect to KANT.
