The Development and Scope of Kantian Belief: The Highest Good, The Practical Postulates and The Fact of Reason

Kant Studien 102 (3):290-315 (2011)

Abstract

This paper offers an account of the historical development of Kant's understanding of belief ( Glaube ) from its early ties to George Friedrich Meier's Auszug aus der Vernunftlehre through various stages of refinement. It will be argued that the Critique of Pure Reason reflects an important but not final stage in Kant's understanding of belief. Its structure is further refined and its scope narrowed in later works, including the Critique of Practical Reason and Critique of Judgment . After charting these stages, an analysis of how belief relates to the Fact of Reason will be presented
