Cosmopolitanism as an Answer: Kant’s Philosophy of History


The book focuses on Kant’s philosophy of history as a part of his practical philosophy. It deals with Kant’s interpretation of history that leads to political issues and introduces his project of cosmopolitanism as the culmination of his philosophy of history. Kant’s effort to introduce a model which would guarantee perpetual peace is studied from various perspectives and the book deals with the philosopher’s inspirational impulses stemming from the eighteenth-century European thought as well as with contemporary philosophical thinking in the field of cosmopolitanism showing the topicality of the idea of Kant’s cosmopolitanism in today’s world. The issue of objectivity in history, brought by various interpretations of history and its future projections by the philosophers of the 18th century, offers a great potential for the analysis of Kant’s contribution to the problem.
