Something dead’ describes also the way the subject relates to objects and perhaps also to other subjects as objects: “he is an independent unit for whom everything else in the world is external to him” (ETW 303; 378). In his daily interactions, the individual encounters his environment as made up of a multitude of changeable and perishable objects. Contrasting with this experience of daily loss, and to some extent compensating for it, is the conviction that the totality of entities, the world itself, is God’s eternal creation.
The danger with this entirely negative conception of rational freedom is that it commits us to permanent self-testing: nothing is taken on trust, not even our own earlier testimony. Apart from other inconveniences, such as the onset of moral paranoia, this absolutist version of the demand for rational vigilance presents us with the task of identifying what is effectively a philosophical chimera, a self-authenticating insight that is capable of instructing us in a direct and epistemically sound way about what is morally right.
In this part of his argument, his chief interlocutor is not Lessing, but Kant. Kant’s project of a ‘critique’ of reason, which sets limits to reason’s cognitive power, was taken to caution against rationalist immodesty. On the other hand, in his moral philosophy, Kant insists that reason is sufficient as moral legislator and indeed necessary for the achievement of true morality and the genuine exercise of our freedom. In short, moral agency is a rational agency, and rational agency gives its proper meaning to free agency.
