Kant's depression

Legend has it that Kant’s final word on his deathbed was “enough” (genug). The aged peripatetic philosopher of Koningsberg let out a word that was also a sigh, and depressive reason seems to have had the final say. Eugene Thacker
If legend is accurate, Kant didn't do it right. Not many genuine peripatetics  surrender to depression.
