Rav Hirsch and his followers and decendants quoted 'Kant' as a good auther (so to speak) as reading his works a positive idea. Especially his "Critique of Pure Reason" as a work which truthfuly expounds on a persons logical norms and functioning (for lack of better words at 1:25 at night!).

"Immanuel Kant was born in the East Prussian city of Königsberg, studied at its university, and worked there as a tutor and professor for more than forty years, never travelling more than fifty miles from home. Although his outward life was one of legendary calm and regularity, Kant's intellectual work easily justified his own claim to have effected a Copernican revolution in philosophy. Beginning with his Inaugural Dissertation (1770) on the difference between right- and left-handed spatial orientations, Kant patiently worked out the most comprehensive and influential philosophical programme of the modern era. His central thesis—that the possibility of human knowledge presupposes the active participation of the human mind—is deceptively simple, but the details of its application are notoriously complex."
