  1. Michael Bennett McNulty (forthcoming). Kant on Chemistry and the Application of Mathematics in Natural Science. Kantian Review 19 (3).
    In his Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Naturwissenschaft (MAN), Kant claims that chemistry is a science, but not a proper science (like physics), because it does not adequately allow for the application of mathematics to its objects. In this paper, I argue that the application of mathematics to a proper science is best thought of as depending upon a coordination between mathematically constructible concepts and those of the science. In physics, the proper science that exhausts the a priori knowledge of objects of (...)

  2. Mavis Biss (forthcoming). Kantian Moral Striving. Kantian Review.
    In this paper I argue that a dominant strand of Kant’s approach to moral striving in the Doctrine of Virtue does not fit familiar models of striving in that Kant makes it very difficult to conceptualize a fit between the end of moral perfection and the means that could be taken to pursue “strengthened” maxims. I outline a revised account of moral contemplation that addresses my worry regarding means-end fit. My account corrects notable deficiencies in existing approaches to Kantian moral (...)

  3. Huaping Lu-Adler (forthcoming). Kant on the Logical Form of Singular Judgements. Kantian Review.
    At A71/B96-7 Kant explains that singular judgements are ‘special’ because they stand to the general ones as Einheit to Unendlichkeit. The reference to Einheit brings to mind the category of unity and hence raises a specter of circularity in Kant’s explanation. I aim to remove this specter by interpreting the Einheit-Unendlichkeit contrast in light of the logical distinctions among universal, particular and singular judgments shared by Kant and his logician predecessors. This interpretation has a further implication for resolving a controversy (...)

  4. Kate Moran (forthcoming). Delusions of Virtue: Kant on Self-Conceit. Kantian Review.
    Little extended attention has been given to Kant’s notion of self-conceit (Eigendünkel), though it appears throughout his theoretical and practical philosophy. Authors who have discussed self-conceit often describe it as a kind of imperiousness or arrogance in which the conceited agent seeks to impose selfish principles upon others, or perhaps even sees others as worthless. I argue that these features of self-conceit are actually symptoms of a deeper and more thoroughgoing failure. Self-conceit is best described as the tendency to insist (...)
