Is there a way out of this paradox? Perhaps there is, if our subject manages to strike a subtle balance

.2 Balancing the Public and Private Uses of Reason As Foucault puts it, “Kant defines Aufklärung in an almost entirely negative way, as an Ausgang , an ‘exit’, a ‘way out’.” 20 Human beings have voluntarily brought upon themselves their predicament of obeying the authority of an- other, where a book
