Kant's Moral Theory


An in-depth examination of Kant's practical philosophy: his moral and political theory. Readings include the Critique of Practical Reason, parts of the Metaphysics of Morals, Perpetual Peace, and other writings. Supplementary readings will be used to situate Kant's work in its systematic and historical context, to provide orientation in the world of Kant scholarship, and to introduce important contrasting views and criticisms. We will also discuss recent reformulations of Kantian themes in the works of contemporary philosophers. Prerequisites: one course in Philosophy at the 300-level, graduate standing, or permission of the instructor.
