Chapter 9. Conclusion. Kant’s Political Philosophy
Robert Roecklein’s Kant’s Philosophy and the Momentum of Modernity takes up the quarrel of the ancients and moderns in novel ways, exposing the Epicurean roots of modern thinking. He does so principally through a vigorous critique of Kant’s distinction between phenonena and noumena and then elaborating its pernicious implications for ethics and politics. The case is fiercely argued. While the reader may not agree with all of Roecklein’s arguments, the book should provoke new assessments of Kant's relationship to the early Enlightenment and postmodernity.
