9780199645152: Kant's Politics in Context

Kants Politics in Context shows how Kant developed his legal and political philosophy in an environment of controversy between conservative and radical observers of the French Revolution. Reidar Maliks argues that Kant recognized in the Revolution of 1789 his own concept of equal freedom, which he in the following decade developed into a theory of law and the state. This concept of freedom was at the root of his condemnation of paternalistic government, which makes persons dependent on the good will of a ruler, and his denunciation of direct democracy, which subjects persons to the arbitrary decisions of a majority. It led Kant to develop a republican constitutionalism, where persons are free and independent because they are subject only to law.
That Kant idealized the public sphere is well known, but that he intentionally developed his own philosophy in polemical articles and pamphlets aimed for a wide audience has not been fully appreciated. Paying attention to the debates he sparked during the 1790s- where radical followers like Fichte, Erhard, and Bergk clashed with conservative critics like Rehberg, Möser, and Gentz- can help us understand Kants political philosophy. The first comprehensive account of Kants politics in context, this book provides a fresh perspective both on a foundational moment for modern political philosophy and on Kants central political concepts, including freedom, rights, citizenship, revolution, and war.

Recensione:

The translation of Kants ideas into more recognisable and accessible terminology from the perspective of a modern reader is an incredibly useful reading tool, particularly for readers who may be less familiar with, or completely new to, Kants writing. ( Josh Jowitt, Durham Law School, LSE Blog)

Kant thought of philosophy, including political philosophy, as an a priori discipline. As such, his work might be expected to be resistant or even hostile to any sort of contextualization. In this excellent book, Reidar Maliks explores Kant's relation to the events of his era and the political debates of his contemporaries, but does so without dismissing or compromising his philosophical ambitions. It will be essential reading for both Kant scholars and anyone interested in the history of political thought. ( Arthur Ripstein, Professor of Law and Philosophy, University of Toronto)

By meticulously reconstructing the lively debates between Kant and his many interlocutors, including both his radical and conservative followers, Reidar Maliks illuminates the revolutionary circumstances that shaped Kant's political thought. Maliks' incisive philosophical analysis of Kant on freedom, equality, citizenship, resistance, and peace elucidates German Enlightenment republican thought on its own terms and yet, precisely in doing so, demonstrates its resonances with contemporary political dilemmas. ( Sankar Muthu, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago)

That Immanuel Kant idealized the public sphere in a time in which the public sphere was still more an ideal than an actually reality is well known. Less well known is that he intentionally developed his own philosophy in public discourse. This is one of the insights of Reidar Maliks' book, a welcome contribution in the knowledge of a philosopher whose ideas shaped so deeply the way the moderns came to conceive of politics as a discursive practice in the open that relies on information and citizens' judgment. Maliks' is a must-read book.' ( Nadia Urbinati, Professor of Political Theory, Columbia University)

In the past decades, political philosophy has recovered the systematic appeal of Kant's legal and political thought, but often at the cost of separating it from its origins in the late Enlightenment debates on liberty and paternalism, on republicanism and autocracy, on peace, revolution, and war. Reidar Maliks identifies Kants important precursors in theories of sovereignty and natural law, but also introduces his lesser known interlocutors, conservative or radical, in Europe's revolutionary debates. Maliks offers the first comprehensive English-language contextual reading of Kant's political thought, embedding Kant into the discussions of his age, yet never losing sight of the conceptual standards of todays philosophical debate. ( Peter Niesen, Professor of Political Theory, University of Hamburg)

L'autore:

Reidar Maliks' articles have appeared in journals including Kantian Review and History of Political Thought and he is the co-editor of Kantian Theory and Human Rights. Reidar Maliks is an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Oslo
