New Essays on the History of Autonomy: A Collection Honoring J. B. Schneewind
Natalie Brender, Larry Krasnoff, Jerome B. Schneewind
Cambridge University Press, Jun 7, 2004 - History - 214 pages
Kantian autonomy is often thought to be independent of time and place, but J.B. Schneewind in his landmark study, The Invention of Autonomy, has shown that there is much to be learned by setting Kant's moral philosophy in the context of the history of modern moral philosophy.The distinguished authors in the collection continue Schneewind's project by relating Kant's work to the historical context of his predecessors and to the empirical context of human agency.This will be a valuable resource for professionals and advanced students.
