SOLE PLANS, Sergi. Stakes of reason: residence in Kant and Hegel. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.130, pp.499-513. ISSN 2340-2733.

The need to go through a residency training program to become specialists in psychiatry highlights the fact that purely theoretical knowledge is insufficient for guiding clinical practice. To understand how such training can provide the practical knowledge of man that this profession requires we review the concept of madness in Hegel along with Kant's proposal of approaching a purposeful world. We recognize in them the insufficiency of reason for this purpose and an invitation to assume that there is a world and a sense in it, to wager that it is this way although it cannot be demonstrated. To this we are encouraged by the experience we have of the world we inhabit, in which we reside.

Keywords : Judgement; reason; insanity; habit; residence; Kant; Hegel.
