Giacometti once said that he was sculpting not the human figure but "the shadow that is cast."His favorite word, Beckett once said, is "Perhaps."Staying with Shakespeare, it seems impossible, now that we have Godot behind us, not to feel Beckett's presence in that graveyard in Hamlet, with the clown/gravedigger singing while he digs up skulls.

The way in which Weber understood Kant seems to have come through theconceptual template set by moral psychology and philosophicalanthropology. In conscious opposition to the utilitarian-naturalisticjustification of modern individualism, Kant viewed moral action assimultaneously principled and self-disciplined and expressiveof genuine freedom and autonomy. On this Kantian view, freedom andautonomy are to be found in the instrumental control of the self andthe world (objectification) according to a law formulated solely fromwithin (subjectification). Furthermore, such a paradoxical compound ismade possible by an internalization or willful acceptance of atranscendental rational principle, which saves it from falling prey tothe hedonistic subjectification that Kant found in Enlightenmentnaturalism and which he so detested. Kant in this regard followsRousseau in condemning utilitarianism; instrumental-rational controlof the world in the service of our desires and needs just degeneratesinto organized egoism. In order to prevent it, mere freedom of choicebased on elective will (Willkür) has to be replaced bythe exercise of purely rational will (Wille). Instrumentaltransformation of the self is thus the crucial benchmark of autonomousmoral agency for Kant as well as for Locke, but its basis has beenfundamentally altered in Kant; it should be done with the purpose ofserving a higher end, that is, the universal law of reason. A willfulself-transformation is demanded now in the service of a higher lawbased on reason, or an “ultimate value” in Weber’sparlance.
