Abstract

Although the dictum inserted by Kant in the epilogue of the "Critique of Practical Reason" is deciphered, in the very few interpretations dedicated to it, in the sense of synthesizing of the two main domains of knowledge by which the system of the transcendental idealism is built up, respectively of investigating of nature existing under the "starry heaven" and of morality raising from the invisible self, the fact that it used to be inserted as a conclusion of the main Kantian practical work gives us the possibility of a different interpretation; respectively to answer in totality for the domain of morals. Since a morals built up on the ground of three postulates among which two above the reciprocal human relations (God and the immortal soul), could be interpreted as uniting the "starry" heavenly vault on which these ideas are projected, with the freedom of the invisible self resident under this one.
