Politics and Metaphysics in Kant

This volume features thirteen all-new, cutting-edge essays that explore the relationship between politics and metaphysics in Kant and Kantian political philosophy. The contributors engage closely with contemporary theories that derive from Kant and ultimately revisit the question of the very role of metaphysics and moral and political philosophy.
