The fourteen essays in this volume, by leading scholars in the field, explore the relationship between teleology and politics in Kant’s corpus. Among the topics discussed are Kant’s normative political theory and legal philosophy; his cosmopolitanism and views on international relations; his theory of history; his theory of natural teleology; and the broader relationship between morality, history, nature, and politics. Politics and Teleology in Kant will be of interest to a wide audience, including Kant scholars; scholars and students working in moral and political philosophy, the philosophy of history, and political theory and political science; legal scholars; and international relations theorists.
