Abstract

The paper offers a discussion of Kant’s views on politics. It shows how the latter is interwoven with the morals and law. The author reminds us, that for Kant the highest political good possible was the eternal peace. What plays an important role in reaching this status is the reform. The author aims at justifying the claim, that Kant’s interest in politics was not a matter of contingency. As he believes, its continuity can be proved, especially in Kant’s kleine Schriften, as well as in many of his remarkable remarks in his big works.
