  • Pragmatism, Kant, and Transcendental Philosophy

    Edited by Gabriele Gava, Robert Stern

    Philosophers working within the pragmatist tradition have pictured their relation to Kant and Kantianism in very diverse terms: some have presented their work as an appropriation and development of Kantian ideas, some have argued that pragmatism is an approach in complete opposition to Kant.

  • The Limits of Moral Obligation

    Moral Demandingness and Ought Implies Can

  • Kant: Studies on Mathematics in the Critical Philosophy

    Edited by Emily Carson, Lisa Shabel

  • Art and Ethics in a Material World

    Kant’s Pragmatist Legacy

    By Jennifer A McMahon

    In this book, McMahon argues that a reading of Kant’s body of work in the light of a pragmatist theory of meaning and language (which arguably is a Kantian legacy) leads one to put community reception ahead of individual reception in the order of aesthetic relations. A core premise of the book is…

    A Kantian Environmental Ethic

    By Toby Svoboda

    The Case Against Hume

    By David Landy

    Kant’s Inferentialism draws on a wide range of sources to present a reading of Kant’s theory of mental representation as a direct response to the challenges issued by Hume in A Treatise of Human Nature.
