  1. Kant, Rawls and Pogge on Global Justice.Thomas Mertens - manuscript
    Pogge’s writings on international distributive justice, some of them now collected in ‘World Poverty and Human Rights’ (2002),1 exhibit a masterly interplay of moral argumentation and empirical data. In this contribution, I cannot do justice to both and will therefore focus on Pogge’s moral arguments, the origins of which are to be found in the legal philosophies of Kant and Rawls. Contrary to these philosophers, however, Pogge does argue in favor of an institutionalized global order. That is, he argues, what (...)

    From 'Perpetual Peace' to 'the Law of Peoples': Kant, Habermas and Rawls on International Relations.Thomas Mertens - 2002 - Kantian Review 6:60-84.
    It is hardly surprising that the two greatest Kantian philosophers of the twentieth century's second half would, at some point of time, reflect and comment on one of the most famous writings of the Königsberg sage, namely on Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch. Of course, in recent decades, and especially around the celebration of the 200th anniversary of its publication, many commentary articles and books have been published on Kant's little essay, but it makes a difference when Jürgen Habermas and (...)

    On Kant’s Duty to Speak the Truth.Thomas Mertens - 2016 - Kantian Review 21 (1):27-51.
    In, Kant defends a position that cannot be salvaged. The essay is nonetheless important because it helps us understand his philosophy of law and, more specifically, his interpretation of the social contract. Kant considers truthfulness a strict legal duty because it is the necessary condition for the juridical state. As attested by Kants arguments against the death penalty, not even the right to life has such strict unconditional status. Within the juridical state, established by the social contract, the innate right (...)

    Sexual Desire and the Importance of Marriage in Kant's Philosophy of Law.Thomas Mertens - 2014 - Ratio Juris 27 (3):330-343.
    In his moral writings, Kant states that moral duty cannot be derived from “the special characteristics of human nature.” This statement is untenable if one takes seriously Kant 's moral views on sexual desire. Instead close study reveals that considerations based on both morality and nature play a role here. The combination of these two elements leads to inconsistencies and difficulties in Kant 's understanding of sexual desire, but they enable us to better understand the importance Kant attributes to marriage (...)

    Habermas En Searle: Kritische Beschouwingen Bij de Theorie Van Het Communicatieve Handelen.Thomas Mertens - 1986 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 48 (1):66 - 93.
    In this article the author submits as thesis that Habermas's concept of communicative action results from an uncritical appropriation of the concept ‘speech act’. For this purpose, firstly the origin of Habermas's idea of a ‘power-free communication’ in his discussion with Gadamer will be considered. The legitimacy of such a concept of language is — following Habermas — adequately shown most of all by Searle. Secondly therefore, Searle's theory of the speech act will be taken in consideration. Indeed, Searle places (...)

  25. De onschuld voorbij: Jeff McMahans Killing in War. [REVIEW]Koos ten Bras & Thomas Mertens - 2011 - Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy 40 (1):64-74.
    Jeff McMahan, one of the leading contemporary writers on ‘just war thinking’, argues in the book under review, Killing in War, that one of the central tenets of the ‘ius in bello’, namely the moral equality of combatants, is both conceptually and morally untenable. This results from a reflection upon and a departure from two basic assumptions in Walzer’s work, namely the idea that war itself isn’t a relation between persons, but between political entities and their human instruments and the (...)
