Hud Hudson: Kant's Compatibilism [Book Review]

Kant-Studien 90:371-384 (1999)

Wolfgang Ertl
Keio University
In this review article I critically discuss Hudson's claims that (i) Kant is a Davidsonian anomalous monist avant la lettre and that (ii) Kant's approach provides the resources for undermining van Inwagen's consequence argument. While I disagree with regard to (i) in the face of Kant's causality thesis about reason as something non-physical, I agree with regard to (ii). The attack on van Inwagen, however, only works because Kant, in his account of the regulative use of reason, draws on doctrines pertaining to philosophical theology.
