Phantom Duty? Nietzsche versus Königsbergian Chinadom
Chapter in Nietzsche and Kantian Ethics, ed. João Constâncio and Tom Bailey
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Much high-quality work has recently been done to elucidate Nietzsche’s ethics. But little attention has been given to the critical relations between his ethics and the Kantian approach to ethics and politics, dominant in both his and our time. Nietzsche and Kantian Ethics examines the critical responses to Kantian senses of agency, freedom, responsibility, duty, equality and normativity and to specific Kantian moral and political duties that can be derived from Nietzsche’s work. These responses and the normative, theoretical and methodological issues that they raise are analysed and evaluated by established scholars from both Nietzschean and Kantian perspectives. The result is a rich and extensive treatment of the critical significance of Nietzsche and Kantian ethics and politics for each other.
