Kant slept in a self-woven cocoon of quilts every night, as he believed any movement stifled his thought.

Every morning, he had to be unravelled by his man-servant, Lampe.

No fucking shit Kant was autistic. Even today, there's the Kant walk throughout Königsberg/Kaliningrad, so named because Kant went on the same walk every single day for years on end, with such autistic precision that it was said you could use his progress on the route to set your clock. He would always walk alone, because he believed he had to breathe through his nostrils to be brilliant. If he had to talk to people, it wouldn't work, he'd have to breathe through the mouth occasionally.

He'd also throw a temper tantrum if de Quincey, his PA in his later life, served his coffee a few seconds too late.

All these little personal quirks as proof of his autism are still pretty much nothing when you consider the weapons-grade plutonium-enriched autism of the categorical imperative.

I remember I had to read the introduction to the second edition to Critique of Pure Reason and being baffled by the autism of it all, which I ruled as a translation problem.

After learning about Kant's routine, and having studied (very little) of his work, I can say for a fact this man was knee deep in the spectrum.

If there really is such a tour it is a sham, which would not surprise me, really--the tourism trade in Kaliningrad probably revolves exclusively around Kant, and he's a pretty tough sell on his own.

Kant was a renouned lecturer and a critical figure in Königsburg's intellectual society. He hosted dinner parties frequently, and was known for his lively conversation and sense of humor. Does that sound 'autistic'?

It doesn't take a lot of social skill and humor to please a german, my dude. It's like that guy who can only play 5 songs and yet is regarded as a musician by his friends who can't play none at all.
