The paper focuses on that part of Kant’s philosophical legacy, which is represented by his ethical reflections and their ethical consequences. The main objective of the paper is a polemic against some value positions (formality, lacking of content, general character and lacking of concreteness) connected with Kant’s ethic. The paper examines mainly the following problems: the principle of the autonomy of will, imperatives and the phenomenon of human nature. Judging the social application of Kant’s ethic the author considers first its historical-dynamic form, which is presented mainly by means of the analysis of Kant’s reflections oriented on the presuppositions of the establishment of civic society.
