  3. Art and Ethics in a Material World

    Kant’s Pragmatist Legacy

    By Jennifer A McMahon

    Series: Routledge Studies in Ethics and Moral Theory

    In this book, McMahon argues that a reading of Kant’s body of work in the light of a pragmatist theory of meaning and language (which arguably is a Kantian legacy) leads one to put community reception ahead of individual reception in the order of aesthetic relations. A core premise of the book is...

  4. Kant: Studies on Mathematics in the Critical Philosophy

    Edited by Emily Carson, Lisa Shabel

    There is a long tradition, in the history and philosophy of science, of studying Kant’s philosophy of mathematics, but recently philosophers have begun to examine the way in which Kant’s reflections on mathematics play a role in his philosophy more generally, and in its development. For example, in...

    A Kantian Environmental Ethic

    By Toby Svoboda

    Series: Routledge Studies in Ethics and Moral Theory

By contrast, non-conceptualism is the view that mental representations of the world do not necessarily presuppose...

  7. The Limits of Moral Obligation

    Moral Demandingness and Ought Implies Can

    Edited by Marcel van Ackeren, Michael Kühler

    Series: Routledge Studies in Ethics and Moral Theory

    This volume responds to the growing interest in finding explanations for why moral claims may lose their validity based on what they ask of their addressees. Two main ideas relate to that question: the moral demandingness objection and the principle "ought implies can." Though both of these ideas...

    By Julian Wuerth

  10. What May I Hope?

    By Andrew Chignell

    Series: Kant's Questions

    The concept of hope plays a fascinating yet overlooked role in Kant's thought. Whilst his emphasis on reason and enlightened thought may be seen to leave little room for hope, it is a question that sits at the heart of his writings on religion and political philosophy. What May I Hope? ...
