A Russian man was reportedly shot in a quarrel over the thinker Immanuel Kant. It sounds incongruous, but it's not the first time that philosophy has incited aggression.Two men were waiting for a beer at a store in the southern Russian town of Rostov-on-Don. Somehow, the subject of the philosopher Immanuel Kant came up. Discussion morphed into argument, argument descended into fisticuffs.What was it all about - a disagreement over synthetic a priori propositions?Might the violence have been caused by diverse interpretations of transcendental idealism? Or perhaps the quarrel was triggered by a fundamental difference of opinion about the "categorical imperative"?
