About this book

It was not so long ago that the dominant picture of Kant’s practical philosophy was forma­listic, focusing almost exclusively on his Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals and Critique of Practical Reason. However, the overall picture of Kant’s wide-ranging philosophy has since been broadened and deepened. We now have a much more complete understanding of the range of Kant’s practical interests and of his contributions to areas as diverse as anthropology, peda­gogy, and legal theory. What remains somewhat obscure, however, is how these different contributions hang together in the way that Kant suggests that they must. This book explores these different conceptions of humanity, morality, and legality in Kant as main ‘manifestations’ or ‘dimensions’ of practical normativity. These interrelated terms play a cru­cial role in highlighting different rational obligations, their source(s), and their appli­cability in the face of changing circumstances.

Reviews

"Lyssy and Yeomans have put together a volume of exceptionally high quality on a notion central to Kantian philosophy. Taken together, the chapters easily represent the most comprehensive treatment available of normativity across the domains of Kant's practical philosophy. This will no doubt be a welcome resource for specialists, but the diversity of the topics discussed under the broader theme of normativity, not to mention the accessibility of each of the contributions, ensures that non-specialists will also find something of interest." (Corey W. Dyck, Professor and Faculty Scholar for Arts and Humanities, Western University, Canada)
