Summary/Abstract: In his short essay, the author Johann Georg Hamann reacts critically to the very core of Kant’s anti-metaphysical project by trying to show that the distinction between analytic and synthetic judgments on the one side and between pure intuitions and concepts on the other side does not affect at all the hidden laws of language. He claims that certain forms of life itself, manifested in different kinds of creative artifacts as part of all human expression, being strongly backed by religious experiences in the Judeo-Christian tradition, do for sure lead in a strikingly modern way to lots of unsurpassable contributions towards deeper understanding of the roots of our reason through their imaginative and morally relevant findings and/or revelations
