Kant on God, Immortality, and the Highest Good

Southern Journal of Philosophy 32 (1):121-133 (1994)
Abstract
Kant claims in the religion that morality leads ineluctably and inevitably to religion. I argue that a moral agent can resist the movement towards religion and still remain moral. My strategy differs from many found in the literature insofar as I do not believe we need to attack the notion of the highest good. I argue instead that the promotion of the highest good can be a moral duty for a rational nonbeliever
