Abstract

The difference between Hermann Cohen’s System of Philosopohy and his philosophy of religion can be determined via the logical “Judgment of Contradiction.” In Cohen’s "Logic of Pure Knowledge" (1902, 1914²) the “Judgment of Contradiction” acts as a “means of protection” against “falsifications” that may have arisen on the pathway through the previous judgments of “origin” and “identity.” Cohen thematizes these operations in his "Religion of Reason Out of the Sources of Judaism," (1919, 1929²) too. However, there they do not form the grounding for natural science but rather for the knowledge of nature as creation in a strict correlation to God’s uniqueness.
