KANT’S RESPONSE TO MARIA II

Kant also tells her that, with time, the man will return to her if his love for her was genuine and moral.  If he does not return than his affection was more physical than genuine.

Kant also tells Maria that she must meet her misfortune with composure, and says that “the value of life, insofar as it consists of the enjoyment we get from people, is vastly overrated.”

This quote perhaps is telling, since someone who gets little enjoyment from others may have little sympathy or feeling for others.

And as Langton points out, Kant thinks that Maria deserves to have lost her love, and that her suffering is appropriate punishment for her immoral behavior.
