The concept of the highest good appears at many important junctures of Kant’s critical philosophy in 1780s and 1790s. However, Kant’s system underwent significant changes during this period. This conference seeks to explore whether and how the concept of the highest good plays a systematic function in the various phases and domains of Kant’s mature thought. Kant’s various accounts have been challenged particularly as regards the highest good’s immanent or transcendent character, its individual or cosmic meaning, and the need to assume the existence of God and the immortality of the soul. As a consequence, it is controversial whether such a concept can be conceived as the cornerstone of the system of ideas and a priori principles while being at the same time the overarching telos of reason’s worldly realization.
The aim of this conference is to explore the problematic architectonic status of the highest good, in order to discuss its relevance for the consistency of Kant’s critical system.
