PHIL 7728 Kant and Lonergan on Ethics (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Kant effected a "Copernican Revolution" not only in the theory of knowing but in ethical and moral philosophy as well. His remarkable synthesis was a powerful inspiration for virtually all contemporary moral standards, including independent choice, universal human rights, and equal treatment before the law (i.e., procedural justice). Lonergan's work in cognitional theory was a response to the limitations in Kant's theory of knowledge. But his ethical and value theory was also a response to Kant's moral philosophy. This course will undertake a careful reading of Kant's major works in moral philosophy and the responses from Lonergan's works.
