About this product
- DescriptionIn the present-day debate on free will, Kant's theory of freedom has been dismissed as bad metaphysics. This however leaves decisive questions partially unanswered, namely - to what concept of freedom does Kant lay claim? What functions are ascribed to it? What proof does Kant advance to justify it? The author demonstrates that Kant's theory has t been adequately represented in all three points, and resumes the negotiation about its systematic validity. Bojawski demonstrates why the practice of morality cant dispense with Kant's concept of automy as absolute freedom, and on the basis of Kant's epistemic critique he defends this concept against a deterministic moral scepticism. In conclusion, he demonstrates why this concept does t fail when faced with the possibility of morally evil acts, but that in fact talking about morally evil acts is t possible without it.
