(p.19) 2 Kant's Critical Ethics and the Sublime
The Kantian Sublime

Paul Crowther (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Outlines Kant's basic epistemological position and also that of his moral philosophy. Attention is then paid to the way in which the sublime functions—via the notion of respect—in this philosophy. It is seen that, for Kant, the moral law is that which is most worthy of respect, and which is thence worthy of the epithet ‘sublime’.

Keywords:   Kant, Kantian epistemology, Kantian ethics, respect, supersensible, the sublime
