    Kant’s Conception of Moral Character: The ‘Critical’ Link of Morality, Anthropology, and Reflective Judgment. [REVIEW]G. Felicitas Munzel - 1999 - Ethics 112 (3):634-637.
    Currently fashionable among critics of enlightenment thought is the charge that Kant's ethics fails to provide an adequate account of character and its formation in moral and political life. G. Felicitas Munzel challenges this reading of Kant's thought, claiming not only that Kant has a very rich notion of moral character, but also that it is a conception of systematic importance for his thought, linking the formal moral with the critical, aesthetic, anthropological, and biological aspects of his philosophy. The first (...)

  2. Lectures on Anthropology.Robert B. Louden, Allen W. Wood, Robert R. Clewis & G. Felicitas Munzel (eds.) - 2013 - Cambridge University Press.
    Kant was one of the inventors of anthropology, and his lectures on anthropology were the most popular and among the most frequently given of his lecture courses. This volume contains the first translation of selections from student transcriptions of the lectures between 1772 and 1789, prior to the published version, Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View, which Kant edited himself at the end of his teaching career. The two most extensive texts, Anthropology Friedländer and Anthropology Mrongovius, are presented here (...)

    Kant's Theory of Imagination: Bridging Gaps in Judgement and Experience.G. Felicitas Munzel & Sarah L. Gibbons - 1997 - Philosophical Review 106 (3):485.
    The study is carried out in five chapters, with the first two offering a reconsideration of the function of the imagination in the Transcendental Deduction and Schematism of the first Critique. The last three follow the order of topics discussed by Kant in the third Critique in regard to judgments of taste, the sublime, and teleology; they conclude with an interpretation of "productive imagination" as a "model for the ideal of intellectual intuition". The comparison between "human and divine spontaneity" is (...)

    Kant on Moral Education, or "Enlightenment" and the Liberal Arts.G. Felicitas Munzel - 2003 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (1):43 - 73.
    “THE ONLY THING NECESSARY IS NOT THEORETICAL LEARNING, but the Bildung of human beings, both in regard to their talents and their character.” Kant’s epigrammatic observation in his 1778 letter to Christian Wolke, director of the Philanthropin, adumbrates not only his mature sense of “enlightenment” but also the pedagogical role of his critical philosophy and his own life’s work. Over a decade earlier, his reading of Rousseau’s Emile: or, On Education had “set him straight” about what constitutes the true dignity (...)

    Cultivating Moral Consciousness: The Quintessential Relation of Practical Reason and Mind (Gemüt) as a Bulwark Against the Propensity for Radical Evil.G. Felicitas Munzel - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 51 (13):1371-1380.
    To perfect human beings with an innate propensity for radical evil is a formidable task. Kant explicitly says that the propensity for evil is not eradicable; it is rooted in human nature, specifically in the human power of choice-making. The task is to reorient the natural order of choice-making, to the moral order that takes the moral law as its supreme principle. I explicate the role of a specific capacity of the human subjective side of judging in this process; namely, (...)

    Kant’s Ethical Thought.G. Felicitas Munzel - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (1):180-182.
    The broadest aim of Wood’s project is the improvement of our own self-understanding by: “replacing commonly accepted ideas” about Kant’s ethical thought with “more accurate and less oversimplified ones”, the hope is that this “might help to transform our conception of our own history and of ourselves as heirs of the Enlightenment”. Our age, writes Wood, “needs Kant’s sober, principled hope for a more rational, cosmopolitan future”.

    Reason’s Practical Idea of Perpetual Peace, Human Character, and the Pedagogical Function of the Republican Constitution.G. Felicitas Munzel - 1996 - Idealistic Studies 26 (2):101-134.
    Within Kant’s own writings, it is complicated by the further tension between his pedagogy and his moral philosophy. When one sees Kant’s conception of character as a systematic connection between these three aspects of his philosophy, light is shed on the role and limits of the pedagogical function of the republican constitution. Thereby, too, the inherent limit of the extent to which perpetual peace, practically defined, can be a political goal effected by political means is unveiled.

    As a phenomenon, as a concept, as an essential trait of human individual and collective activity, to be “global” has become a familiar commonplace. As is often the case with the familiar, it is not necessarily well understood, and as such a problematic concept, “globalization” evokes contradictory emotions of hope and anxiety. In his extremely penetrating and encompassing philosophical analysis of this notion as a complex political concept and phenomenon affecting every arena of life today, Otfried Höffe offers a vision (...)
