Freedom and the human person by Richard Velkley( )

14 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Western tradition, freedom and the human person have been at the center of philosophical, theological, moral, and political debates from the beginning. Although contemporary discourse betrays the multiplicity of these roots, the necessary historical perspective for evaluating them is almost always lacking, even in scholarly studies. The terms "freedom" and "person" carry such overwhelming force in the modern world that the critical distance required for grasping what is at stake in using them is extremely hard to gain." "The present collection seeks to contribute toward finding that distance by making the tradition a living reality and not merely an object of arid analysis. Unlike most collections the present one transcends disciplinary boundaries, as it acknowledges the interconnectedness of philosophical, theological, and political arguments on these themes."--Jacket

Freedom and the end of reason : on the moral foundation of Kant's critical philosophy by Richard L Velkley( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Freedom and the End of Reason, Richard L. Velkley offers an influential interpretation of the central issue of Kant's philosophy and an evaluation of its position within modern philosophy's larger history. He persuasively argues that the whole of Kantianism-not merely the Second Critique-focuses on a "critique of practical reason" and is a response to a problem that Kant saw as intrinsic to reason itself: the teleological problem of its goodness. Reconstructing the influence of Rousseau on Kant's thought, Velkley demonstrates that the relationship between speculative philosophy
The unity of reason : essays on Kant's philosophy by Dieter Henrich( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heart of Henrich's interpretation of Kant, the essays in this book present a persuasive picture of the development of Kant's moral philosophy and give an account of the argumentative strategies determining all the aspects of Kant's philosophy. They reflect Henrich's general interest in the unity of reason as well as his special interest in self-consciousness as both a key concept of modern philosophy and the key to the highly disputed interpretation of Kant's transcendental deduction of categories
Being after Rousseau : philosophy and culture in question by Richard L Velkley( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Being after Rousseau, Richard L. Velkley presents Jean-Jacques Rousseau as the founder of a modern European tradition of reflection on the relation of philosophy to culture—a reflection that calls both into question. Tracing this tradition from Rousseau to Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Schelling, and Martin Heidegger, Velkley shows late modern philosophy as a series of ultimately unsuccessful attempts to resolve the dichotomies between nature and society, culture and civilization, and philosophy and society that Rousseau brought to the fore. The Rousseauian tradition begins, for Velkley, with Rousseau's criticism of modern political philosophy. Although the German Idealists such as Schelling accepted much of Rousseau's critique, they believed, unlike Rousseau, that human wholeness could be attained at the level of society and history. Heidegger and Nietzsche questioned this claim, but followed both Rousseau and the Idealists in their vision of the philosopher-poet striving to recover an original wholeness that the history of reason has distorted
Kant's Observations and Remarks : a critical guide by Susan Meld Shell( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kant's Observations of 1764 and Remarks of 1764-5 (a set of fragments written in the margins of his copy of the Observations) document a crucial turning point in his life and thought. Both reveal the growing importance for him of ethics, anthropology and politics, but with an important difference. The Observations attempts to observe human nature directly. The Remarks, by contrast, reveals a revolution in Kant's thinking, largely inspired by Rousseau, who 'turned him around' by disclosing to Kant the idea of a 'state of freedom' (modelled on the state of nature) as a touchstone for his thinking. This and related thoughts anticipate such famous later doctrines as the categorical imperative. This collection of essays by leading Kant scholars illuminates the many and varied topics within these two rich works, including the emerging relations between theory and practice, ethics and anthropology, men and women, philosophy, history and the 'rights of man'
The linguistic dimension of Kant's thought : historical and critical essays( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among modern philosophers, Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) has few rivals for his influence over the development of contemporary philosophy as a whole. While the issue of language has become a key fulcrum of continental philosophy since the twentieth century, Kant has been overlooked as a thinker whose breadth of insight has helped to spearhead this advance. The Linguistic Dimension of Kant's Thought remedies this historical gap by gathering new essays by distinguished Kant scholars. The chapters examine the many ways that Kant's philosophy addresses the nature of language. Although language as a formal structure of thought and expression has always been part of the philosophical tradition, the "linguistic dimension" of these essays speaks to language more broadly as a practice including communication, exchange, and dialogue
