Com satisfação divulgamos o lançamento do livro “Kant and the Problem of Morality” (2022), organizado por Alessandro Pinzani (UFSC) em parceira com Luigi Caranti (UniCt), publicado pela editora Routledge. A série “Rethinking the Contemporary World” é composta por três volumes que discutem a atualidade da filosofia kantiana no campo da epistemologia, da filosofia moral e da política.

“This book examines the significance of Kant’s moral philosophy in contemporary philosophical debates. It argues that Kant’s philosophy can still serve as a guide to navigate the turbulence of a globalized world in which we are faced by an imprescriptible social reality wherein moral values and ethical life models are becoming increasingly unstable. The volume draws on Kantian ethics to discuss various contemporary issues, including sustainable development, moral enhancement, sexism, and racism. It also tackles general concepts of practical philosophy such as lying, the different kinds of moral duties, and the kind of motivation one needs for doing what we consider the right thing. Featuring readings by well-known Kant specialists and emerging scholars with unorthodox approaches to Kant’s philosophy, the volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of philosophy, politics and ethics. It will also appeal to moral theorists, applied ethicists and environmental theorists.”
