Kant's contributions to social theory

Ana Marta González
Published Online: 2009-04-05 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/KANT.2009.004


Although Kant is not usually counted among the forerunners of social sciences, any look at the work of the most prominent social theorists of the past century shows the pervasive influence of Kant's philosophy. This influence is obvious and crucial at the epistemological level, if only because Kant himself set the frame for subsequent discussion of the difference between human and natural sciences. Yet, Kant's work is also rich in substantive contributions to social theory, which may be articulated around his conception of culture and cultural progress.

Key words:: culture; civilization; social sciences; unsocial sociability; humaniora
