In a sense, Kant is a really up-to-date philosopher, not only in his
theoretical philosophy (with its epistemological and methodological turn
he labeled „transcendenta“ and his emphasis on rational foundation,
logical deduction and conceptual construction) but even more so with his
moral and political philosophy, dealing with categorical, or
„deontological“, moral principles and the extension of ideas of freedom,
mutual compatibility, conviviality, the indispensable dominance of law and
legal procedures as well as the avoidance of violence and war not only
between individuals, but also peoples, respectively. The topic of a
relationship between Kant’s philosophy and the approaches of other
outstanding philosophers of the past and modernity through the last
century (Kant’s predecessors and successors in philosophy) are discussed
with special treatment of their philosophical and epistemological
relationships with Kant’s insights.
