[Autom. eng. transl.] Both in the first and in the second Kantian Critique, divinity, far from being a presence presently acting in the world, or an ordering principle, is a sort of necessary presupposition, on a metaphysical level. Kant does not renounce attributing to this concept the prescientia, however it represents the highest transcendental idea, that is, it has a regulatory and limiting function with respect to theoretical reason, and it is the postulate that makes the sphere of morality current. Precisely on the level of morality Kant marks the point of greatest distance from the scholastic conceptions of providence, identifying the latter with the disposition of man to be moral.
