GERMAN KANTIAN BIBLIOGRAPHY.
719) Kosmann, J. W. A.: Beweis, dass der Raum kein allgemeiner Begriff, sondern eine reine Anschauung sey, gegen die Einwürfe der Herren Feder und Weishaupt. I. D. Translated from the Latin by the author himself, and in parts enlarged. 8vo. Breslau, Brieg, and Leipzig. Gutsch. pp. 32. The first part reprinted in K. A. M. 1791. I, I, pp. 99-113. (Kosmann attaches himself very closely to Reinhold's views. His Magazin, as insignificant as this no. 719, and short-lived on that account, adopted on every point the side of Reinhold, and gave a portrait of him in its first number.) Against an unfair review of no. 719 in the

722) Kreil, A.: Handbuch der Logik für seine Zuhörer. 8vo. Vienna. Gräffer & Co. pp. 391. (The work owes large debts to Kant, as, e.g., the table of categories [reproduced, it is true, in somewhat altered form], with its limitation to experience.)
723) Lossius, Jh. Ch.: Etwas über die Kantische Philosophie, in Hinsicht des Beweises vom Daseyn Gottes. (From the Acta Acad. Elect. Mogunt. Erfurti: Ad a. 1788, 1789.) 4to. Erfurt. Keyser. pp. 12. Reprinted in Mtr., II, pp. 144-156. (Lossius defends the cosmological proof, with totally inadequate arguments. It is every whit as justifiable for him to argue "von dem, was in der Sinnenwelt bedingt gegeben ist, auf das Unbedingte," as it was for Kant to argue—and he maintains that Kant did so—"von dem, was scheint (!), auf das, was ist.")

(Discovers in a passage of the commentary of Maimonides to the "Mischnah Abboth" Kantian [better Maimonian] thoughts on the relation of thought to knowledge. This essay had already been published, in Hebrew, in a monthly publication of the "Gesellschaft der Forscher der hebräischen Sprache" [(Hebrew characters) = "The Collector"]. Cf. nos. 792 ff.
725) Matthias, A.: Commentatio de rationibus ac momentis quibus virtus nullo religionis praesidio munita sese commendare ac tueri possit. 4to. Göttingen. 1789. pp. 20. (A Preisschrift, crowned by the philosophical faculty, containing no independent thoughts of any value, dependent on Kant as regards the opposition of morality and happiness, and the assumption of a highest being as necessarily requisite for their reconciliation. Without regard to religion, mankind is impelled towards virtue, because this is on the one hand identical with practical reason, and therefore the root of mental freedom, and at the same time is on the other the most essential source of happiness in all outward circumstances, and of the love and reverence of one's neighbors for oneself.)
