Kant and Stoic Ethicss
Some commentators try to assimilate Kant's ethics to views like those of Aristotle or the Stoics, which are less strongly deontological and anti-teleological than Kant's are conventionally taken to be. This chapter argues against such interpretations. Kant does not make attainment of good they key notion in his ethics, as Herman and Guyer — in quite different ways — think he does. Nor does he agree with the Stoics as fully as Annas thinks he does. If we are to appreciate the development of moral thought historically we must not blur the deep differences between Kant and earlier thinkers.
