PHIL 16.02 Kant on Moral, Legal, and Political Philosophy

According to Kant’s influential account of morality, how an agent understands her own actions determines their moral status.  An act that is innocuous in its external guise might be morally problematic because of its internal principle.  Kant supplements this with an account of how we ought to relate to other persons in external respects.  This “doctrine of right” offers a compelling alternative to more widely known political and legal philosophies.  This class will provide a unified introduction to both parts of Kant’s attempt to understand the normative implications of agency.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
