Sample text

I suggest, moreover, that even though Taylor and Habermas do not always explicitly mobilize the tactics of humiliation, their imperative common sense moralities lead to a variety of related ethical and political problems. 5. Outline While Kantian humiliation is where this project started, this is not a book only about humiliation in Kant. In fact, it is not even only a book about how to interpret Kant. Rather, it is a book that outlines a pattern of political thought initiated by Kant, traces its effect on contemporary theorization, and asks whether we should accept or challenge this model of ethics and politics.

Humiliated by its own self-critique (in turn commanded by the dictates of practical reason), theoretical reason must respect the authority of practical reason and find its guiding orientation therein. 3. Kant’s Imperative Image of Morality By examining the architecture, and Kant’s own understanding, of the first Critique, I have so far tried to argue that Kant’s project should be understood as primarily motivated and guided by moral concerns. However, since I have not yet outlined the content of this ‘moral concern,’ the question I still face is the following: if Kant’s epistemological critique of metaphysics and scepticism doesn’t act as the sole logical anchor of his work, what is the precise moral concern that orients the Kantian project?

His somewhat nonchalant reflections on the devastating theoretical conclusions of the first Critique further suggest that Kant’s theoretical critique was already conceived of as serving larger practical aims. Recall, for example, how, in the Transcendental Doctrine of Method, he reflects on what has been achieved so far. He explicitly recognizes that the result of the critique of theoretical reason is to destroy theoretical reason’s pretensions to pure metaphysical knowledge and the right to judge on metaphysical and moral matters.
