Ludwig, Bernd: Aufklärung über die Sittlichkeit
Zu Kants Grundlegung einer Metaphysik der Sitten
Without doubt, Immanuel Kant's "Grundlegung" is one of the crucial documents of Western moral philosophy. However, it is sometimes considered to be one of Kant's – or even all of Western philosophy´s– "darkest" texts. The commentary makes it clear that the alleged darkness is essentially due to the fact that the text has long been read under a false assumption, insinuating that it was Kant´s foremost aim to provide a justification for the moral law in order to ward off moral skepticism. If one reads it instead with the understanding (which is also historically more appropriate) that with the invention of the categorical imperative Kant only wants to state and justify a new formula for the principle of morality in general in order to replace moral eudaimonism with a moral of autonomy –then it becomes readily apparent that the "Grundlegung" is not just a philosophical, but at the same time a literary masterpiece.
