  1. Thinking with Kant "Beyond" Kant.Claudio Corradetti - 2017 - Danish Yearbook of Philosophy 50 (1):59-82.
    In the following essay, I attempt to reactualize some of Kant’s most fundamental conceptions of a state’s sovereignty and the legitimacy of the cosmopolitan order. To this end, I provide what appears as a viable solution to Kant’s “sovereignty dilemma”; that is, the reconciliation between state sovereignty and the international enforceability of laws. I consider that a key component of the overall Kantian cosmopolitan project is the role played by the transcendental notion of an “originally united will” in its validation (...)

  2. An Apparent Paradox: To Establish a Legal State is a Loose Duty.Mogens Chrom Jacobsen - 2017 - Danish Yearbook of Philosophy 50 (1):46-58.
    Taking our point of departure in Kant’s book Zum ewigen Frieden, we note a seeming paradox which we believe has a wider application to legal states as such: while a legal state is supposed to impose strict duties, we only appear to have a loose duty to establish such a state. In order to investigate this seeming paradox, we will recapitulate what Kant says about strict and loose duties and examine in which terms he describes the perpetual peace. We will (...)

  3. Perpetual Peace and Cosmopolitical Method.Brian Milstein - 2017 - Danish Yearbook of Philosophy 50 (1):107-131.
    This article explores the bases of Kant’s cosmopolitanism in his more systematic writings on freedom, judgment, and community. My argument is that, if we peer beneath his more explicitly normative prescriptions for achieving “perpetual peace,” we find the tools not just of a cosmopolitan vision but what we might call a “cosmopolitical method.” While many assume Kant’s political thought descends directly from his moral philosophy, a look back at relevant passages in the first Critique reveals an alternative reading that points (...)

  4. Kant and the Practical Man.Carsten Fogh Niesen - 2017 - Danish Yearbook of Philosophy 50 (1):132-156.
    The Appendix to Kant’s Toward Perpetual Peace is commonly viewed as an explication of the systematic relations between political practice and normative political theory. This paper provides an alternative interpretation of Kant’s main aim in the Appendix which is to provide an argument against the so-called “practical man.” The practical man believes that human nature precludes normative political ideals from ever playing a significant role within political practice. Drawing on the 1793 text “On the common saying: That may be correct (...)

  5. What Kant Would Have Said in the Refugee Crisis.Peter Niesen - 2017 - Danish Yearbook of Philosophy 50 (1):83-106.
    The paper starts out from a debate that occurred in Germany in 2015, where interpreters claimed to be able to divine Immanuel Kant’s views of the contemporary refugee crisis. It does not attempt to give a substantive answer to the title question, i.e. it does not try to specify the conclusive extension of cosmopolitan right. In contrast, it outlines the systematic work that would have to be done in order to be able to answer the title question. I start from (...)
