Abstract

The first part of this essay contests traditional objections to Kant's derivation of the law of right from the moral law, objections based upon the formalism and subjectivism that are inherent in Kant's formulation of the latter. Through a reconstruction of that derivation in syllogistic form, the nature and extent of the empirical presupposition underlying Kant's doctrine of right -furnishing it with a kind of content and natural objectivity -are made perspicuous. After noting the multiple uses of the term „right“ in Kant's doctrine, the second part of the essay sharply criticizes his dismissal of what he calls a „right in a broad sense“, namely, equity.
