Abstract

The article explores the problem of the foundation of human unity in the present situation in which the idea of the human being having an essence or inherent nature is essentially denied. In this situation, new heuristic possibilities of the Kantian position of human beings as “ends in themselves” are revealed. A nonmetaphysical interpretation of this thesis makes it possible to reveal the basis of “the human” in its noumenal dimension.
