‘In the past two decades, Kant’s political philosophy has attracted new attention. The essays in this volume show just how fruitful this attention can be, bringing themes from his political philosophy to bear on fundamental questions of metaethics, morality, and contemporary issues of global justice. The quality of the essays is
consistently high, and they will be of interest not only to Kant scholars but to people working across practical philosophy.’
-Professor Arthur Ripstein, University of Toronto

‘This fine collection of essays covers an impressive range of topics, from the foundations of Kantian ethics and his philosophy of law, to human and territorial rights and the question whether the European Union’s treatment of non-EU citizens is compatible with Kant’s cosmopolitan right. The spirit of the Enlightenment can be felt throughout. Anyone interested in moral, legal and political philosophy should study these papers with care.’
-Professor Jens Timmermann, University of St Andrews

‘This book displays a ground-breaking account of the potentiality that Kant’s conception of normativity entails for successfully dealing with key quandaries of our time. It retrieves, especially from Kant’s practical philosophy, helpful guidance for shedding light on contemporary ethical and legal troubles, and for critically engaging crucial sources of the political and social anxieties that burden our world.’
-Dr Nuria Sánchez Madrid, Complutense University of Madrid
