Man Shot in Fight Over Immanuel Kant’s Philosophy in Russia


In the Russ­ian port city of Ros­tov-on-Don two men were hav­ing a beer this week­end and talk­ing about the phi­los­o­phy of Immanuel Kant (of course), when some­thing went ter­ri­bly wrong. An argu­ment broke out, crit­i­cal rea­son went out the win­dow, and one man end­ed get­ting shot with rub­ber bul­lets. He’s in the hos­pi­tal with non life-threat­en­ing injuries. The shoot­er now faces up to 10 years in jail, where he’ll have lots of time to pon­der Kan­t’s the­o­ries.
