Consequently, Kant received a stern education strict, punitive, and disciplinary

critical attention

major philosophical works. right thumb Statue of Immanuel Kant in Kaliningrad (File:Kant Kaliningrad.jpg) ( Königsberg), Russia During his own life, there was much critical attention paid to his thought . He did have a positive influence on Reinhold (Karl Leonhard Reinhold), Fichte, Schelling (Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling), Hegel, and Novalis during the 1780s and 1790s. The school of thinking known as German Idealism developed from his writings. The German Idealists Fichte and Schelling, for example, tried to bring traditional "metaphysically" laden notions like "the Absolute," "God," or "Being" into the scope of Kant's critical thought. There is much debate in the recent scholarship about the extent to which Fichte and Schelling actually overstep the boundaries of Kant's critical philosophy, thus entering the realm of dogmatic or pre-Critical philosophy. Beiser's ''German Idealism'' discusses some of these issues. Beiser, Frederick C. ''German Idealism: The Struggle against Subjectivism, 1781–1801.'' Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2002. In so doing, the German Idealists tried to reverse Kant's view that we cannot know that which we cannot observe. upright thumb Immanuel Kant's tomb today (File:Immanuel Kant Tomb.jpg) Kant's tomb is today in a mausoleum adjoining the northeast corner of Königsberg Cathedral in what is now known as Kaliningrad, Russia. The mausoleum was constructed by the architect Friedrich Lahrs and was finished in 1924 in time for the bicentenary of Kant's birth. Originally, Kant was buried inside the cathedral, but in 1880 his remains were moved outside and placed in a neo-Gothic chapel adjoining the northeast corner of the cathedral. Over the years, the chapel became dilapidated before it was demolished to make way for the mausoleum, which was built on the same spot, where it is today. Russia has an embassy in Rome and consulates in Genoa, Milan and Palermo, and Italy has an embassy in Moscow (Embassy of Italy in Moscow), a consulate in Saint Petersburg, two consulte generals (in Ekaterinburg and Kaliningrad), and two embassy branches in (Samara (Samara, Russia) and Volgograd). Both countries are full members of the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. In 1817, he became a professor at Königsberg University (Kaliningrad) and full professor of zoology in 1821, and of anatomy in 1826. In 1829 he taught briefly in St. Petersburg, but returned to Königsberg. In 1834 Baer moved back to St Petersburg and joined the St Petersburg Academy of Sciences, first in zoology (1834–46) and then in comparative anatomy and physiology (1846–62). His interests while there were anatomy, ichthyology, ethnography, anthropology and geography. While embryology had kept his attention in Königsbert, then in Russia von Baer engaged in a large deal of field research, including the exploration of the island Novaya Zemlya. The last years of his life (1867–76) were spent in Dorpat, where he became a leading critic of Charles Darwin.

'''Kaliningrad''' ( ), is a seaport city (types of inhabited localities in Russia) and the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian exclave (Enclave and exclave) between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. The territory borders on NATO and European Union members Poland and Lithuania, and is geographically separated from the rest of Russia (Enclave and exclave).

The locality was a site of the ancient Old Prussian settlement fort Twangste. In 1255, a new fortress was built on this site by the Teutonic Knights during the Northern Crusades, and was named "Königsberg" in honour of King Ottokar II of Bohemia. The town was part of the State of the Teutonic Order, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, Prussia and Germany (until 1945). Until the end of World War II, the area formed the northern part of the former East Prussia. The city was largely destroyed during World War II; its ruins were captured by the Red Army in 1945 and its German population fled or was removed by force (Flight and expulsion of Germans (1944–50)). It was renamed Kaliningrad on July 4, 1946 Decree of July 4, 1946 in honor of Mikhail Kalinin. In 2005 Kaliningrad celebrated its 750 years of existence.

According to the 2010 Census (Russian Census (2010)), its population was 431,902 —an increase from 430,003 recorded in the 2002 Census (Russian Census (2002)).
