Hypothetical imperatives: Scope and jurisdiction

In Robert Johnson & Mark Timmons (eds.), (unknown). Oxford University Press (forthcoming)

Abstract

The last few decades have given rise to the study of practical reason as a legitimate subfield of philosophy in its own right, concerned with the nature of practical rationality, its relationship to theoretical rationality, and the explanatory relationship between reasons, rationality, and agency in general. Among the most central of the topics whose blossoming study has shaped this field, is the nature and structure of instrumental rationality, the topic to which Kant has to date made perhaps the largest contribution, under the heading of his treatment of hypothetical imperatives.
