This work examines the relation that exists between Kant’s critical philosophy and his mature political doctrine. The author argues that Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason contains an account of the faculty of reason and the way it shaped his liberal political theory of The Metaphysics of Morals and of his later essays on politics. In so doing, this study fills a gap in the current secondary literature on Kant – the relationship between Kant’s first Critique and his political philosophy is rarely explored by contemporary Kant scholars and by political philosophers.
