Kant’s Ethics and Historicity

(Original title: Dejinné vykročenie Kantovej morálky)
Filozofia, 50 (1995), 5, 266-273.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The first part of the paper reconsiders Kant’s ideas on enlightenment, on French revolution, as well as the progress of humanity and its moral justification. In the next part the civil society is analysed along with its basic principles (liberty, equality, independence). This step is interpreted as passing from moral-practical reason to legal-practical reason in Kant’s philosophy of history - a shift in Kant’s philosophy, which can be seen as resulting from his more profound interest in the relations between morals, law and politics.
