Kant: Political Writings
(2 Revised edition)
Part of the Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought series
The original edition of Kant: Political Writings was first published in 1970, and has long been established as the principal English-language edition of this important body of writing.
In this new, expanded edition, two important texts illustrating Kants's view of history are included for the first time: his reviews of Herder's Ideas on the Philosophy of The History of Mankind and Conjectures on the Beginning of Human History; as well as the essay What is Orientation in Thinking.
In addition to a general introduction assessing Kant's political thought in terms of his fundamental principles of politics, this edition also contains such useful student aids as notes on the texts, a comprehensive bibliography, and a new postscript, looking at some of the principal issues in Kantian scholarship that have arisen since first publication.
