Project description

This research aims at elaborating a secular-immanent interpretation of Kant's 'realm of ends' by analysing (i) the role of a sensus communis moralis as a founding secular principle of a universal moral community, and (ii) the importance of moral judgment, moral feeling, moral conscience and moral education for the practical and immanent application of such a community.
