Kantian Morality and Estrangement

  • Julius Sensat


Kant is an incipient philosopher of estrangement. Though he does not use the vocabulary of estrangement that became prominent in the nineteenth century, he offers an account of moral evil that accords it the marks of the concept, and he understands his moral philosophy as aimed at dispelling the semblance of morality as an alien imposition, a semblance that in his view helps to sustain socially systemic moral evil. I want to discuss his moral philosophy as an attempt to foster such a self-clarification.
