Personality Profile For Immanuel Kant

Immanuel Kant

The following is a personality profile of Immanuel Kant based on his work.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him.
