Yet if we carefully compare the picture of intentionality that is to be (...) found in Aristotle’s De Anima with Brentano’s theory of immanent objects, we find more differences than similarities ref.: It needs to be said very clearly: contemporary jihadism is not a return to the past , e.g. However, in Critique of Practical Reason, he writes, "It is morally necessary to assume the existence of God" and that morality requires humankind to pursue a state of complete virtue ( summum bonum ), which is "only possible on the supposition of the immortality of the soul" (Abbot 1927, pp. 218–219) pdf.
