Thesis: Political Willing in Kant
My thesis offers a systematic account of the role of conflict in Kant’s theory of political willing. Assuming political life as a sphere animated by hostility, I analyse the different ways Kant sought to go about this brute fact of animosity, and the solutions he proposed to the problem of human interaction. This solution for Kant must involve the possibility of willing that my freedom stands in co-existence with your freedom. Ultimately for Kant, the possibility of political life depends on an account of the human will in its lawful relation to others.
