Bad Debt: The Kantian Inheritance of Humean Desire

In Kantian Freedom. New York, NY, USA: (forthcoming)

Abstract
Kant’s claim that virtue has nothing to do with the content of our desires, but depends only on the strength of will needed to manage our desires, depends on an unattractive conception of inclination that he inherits from Hume. Kantians can replace this with a better view of desire without giving up what is most attractive about the Kantian approach: the claim that reason can motivate, and the associated illuminating account of practical freedom.
