About the Standing Group

The Standing Group on Kantian Political Thought brings together scholars that acknowledge the increasing importance of Kantian approaches today. A distinctive feature of the group is its broad focus beyond political theory and examining issues in ethics, epistemology, legal theory, anthropology, aesthetics, philosophy of religion and of history, as well as in other empirical disciplines and social sciences, in order to offer theoretical and practical answers to current political problems. Find out more.
