. . . the purpose in living things is a determination and activity IMMANENT in the matter, AND all the members exist EQUALLY and MUTUALLY as means and end [ ZWECK ] FOR EACH OTHER.

Final Purpose [ Endzweck, 終極目的 ] is merely a concept of OUR practical reason and CANNOT be deduced from any data of experience for making judgments about nature, NOR can it be related to [any] knowledge about it.

No use of this concept is possible, EXCEPT by practical reason in accordance with moral laws; . . .
