Kant and Individual Autonomy

From "The Assault on the French Enlightenment" at The Isaiah Berlin Virtual Library.

"...whenever public thought takes on too severely rational, almost pedantically rational, a turn, the darker forces, the unconscious forces which undoubtedly stir through the minds of mankind, seek some kind of outlet and break out in all kinds of fashions."

See Kant, Perpetual Peace, in Gateway to the Great Books (10 Vol., 1963) volume 7; The Critique of Pure Reason, The Critique of Practical Reason, and The Critique of Judgement, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 42, and (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 39.
