  2. Kant and Capital Punishment Today.Nelson T. Potter - 2002 - Journal of Value Inquiry 36 (2-3):267-282.
    We will consider alternative ways that Kant’s philosophical views on ethics generally and on punishment more particularly could be brought into harmony with the present near consensus of opposition to the death penalty. We will make use of the notion of the contemporary consensus about certain issues, particularly equality of the sexes and the death penalty, found in widespread agreement, though not unanimity. Of course, it is always possible that some consensuses are wrong, or misguided, or mistaken. We should not (...)

    What Is Wrong with Kant’s Four Examples.Nelson Potter - 1993 - Journal of Philosophical Research 18:213-229.
    Kant gives four examples to illustrate the application of the categoricaI imperative immediately after in troducing its “universal Iaw” formulation in Chapter Two his Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals. These examples have been much discussed to gain an understanding of how the categorical imperative applies to derive specific duties. It is argued that the discussions found in these examples do not accord well with Kant’s fuller account of that application in his Iater work The Metaphysics of Morals. That [Iater] (...)

  18. Applying the Categorial Imperative in Kant's Rechtslehre.Nelson Potter - 2003 - Jahrbuch für Recht Und Ethik 11.
    Kant's "supreme principle of morality," which he calls the "categorical imperative," is often applied by him to specific cases to reach conclusions about particular moral duties, e.g., to abstain from suicide, to not make lying promises, to render assistance to others. There are a number of such applications in the first part of his Metaphysik der Sitten , entitled the Rechtslehre, that have had less attention paid to them. In the Rechtslehre Kant is concerned with state-created laws enforced by punishment, (...)

    Pflicht und Neigung by Hans Reiner was first published in Germany in 1951. The present translation by Mark Santos is a translation of the first four chapters of the second edition of this work, which was published under the title Die Grundlagen der Sittlichkeit in 1974. Also included in this English translation are four essays by Reiner, all on ethical topics, and closely related to the topics of Duty and Inclination: "On the Adaptation of the Phenomenological Method to and its (...)

  24. Kant on Duties to Animals.Nelson Potter - 2005 - Jahrbuch für Recht Und Ethik 13.
    Kant behauptet, daß wir nur indirekte Pflichten haben können, von Grausamkeiten und Gewalt gegen Tiere abzusehen. Pflichten dieser Art seien direkte Pflichten gegen uns selbst, um unseren moralischen Charakter nicht zu verderben, aber könnten nicht direkte Pflichten gegenüber den Tieren sein, weil Tiere keine rationalen Wesen sind. Diese Sichtweise erscheint unbefriedigend, da die Tiere die Opfer einer solchen Mißhandlung sind, wenn sie stattfindet, und die Vorstellung, daß wir keine direkten Pflichten ihnen gegenüber haben sollen, erscheint merkwürdig. Ich plädiere dafür, daß (...)

  26. Kant On Obligation And Motivation In Law And Ethics.Nelson Potter - 1994 - Jahrbuch für Recht Und Ethik 2.
    The first part of Immanuel Kant's Metaphysics of Morals , Rechtslehre , has usually been discussed as a political treatise. But there are parallels between law and ethics in Kant; lawgiving in either realm is a combination of precept and incentive. In works that present his core moral philosophy of inner freedom, this freedom is an internal ethical freedom based on an underlying purely moral incentive, whose adequacy is a transcendental assumption of this part of Kant's moral philosophy. But this (...)

    Religion and Rational Theology. [REVIEW]Nelson Potter - 1999 - Dialogue 38 (4):886-887.
    This is the sixth volume of the projected twelve volumes of translations of Kant's major writings—hence, about the halfway point for the completion of the project. The aim is to produce fully scholarly and reliable translations of a broader range of Kant's writings than have previously been readily available in English, with all the useful accoutrements for close study. Thus, we have the use of a standard pagination in the margins, three sorts of footnotes— Kant's original footnotes; explanatory editorial notes, (...)

  32. The Synthetic A Priori Proposition Of Kant's Ethical Philosophy.Nelson Potter - 1997 - Jahrbuch für Recht Und Ethik 5.
    Kant informs us that the categorical imperative is a synthetic a priori proposition. It might be thought that Kant means thereby to say that we have an a priori rational insight, somewhat like that which Plato claimed for the Forms, into this basic moral truth. W. D. Ross had a similar view about human rational insight into certain basic moral principles, and in his book Kant's Ethical Theory he attritubes such a view to Kant.I argue that this initially plausible interpretation (...)
