This book argues that Kant’s theory of international relations should be interpreted as an attempt to apply the principles of reason to history in general, and in particular to political conditions of the late eighteenth century. It demonstrates how Kant attempts to mediate between a priori theory and practice, and how this works in the field of international law and international relations.
Georg Cavallar is Universitätsdozent of Modern History at the Department of History, University of Vienna, Austria; he has published on Kant’s political philosophy, the history of international law, and the philosophy of cosmopolitanism.
