According to Kant, your first duty to yourself and the “beginning of all human wisdom” is to know yourself (MM, 6:441). But what kind of knowledge is this, how can we attain it, and how is it relevant to our moral agency? Kant’s conception of the self and the subjective conditions for moral actions were challenged by subsequent thinkers like Fries, Fichte, and Hegel who identified alleged tensions in Kant’s account and proposed innovative solutions. The question about the relation between self-knowledge and morality is still subject to debate among scholars of Kant and German Idealism.
Filosofisk seminar and the Norwegian Kant Society invites you to the lecture "Using Kantian Ethics to Improve Economics" by professor Mark D. White.
The Norwegian Kant Society has the pleasure to announce the following guest lecture by Hans Marius Hansteen, University of Bergen: The Sublime and the Revolution: Notes on Aesthetics, Rhetoric and Politics in Kant. All interested are welcome!
