Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear all, 1. These have been fascinating two weeks. I enjoyed the format of the seminar, the comments and discussions a lot, and can only hope I could tease out of all those Kantian texts a few bits of interest to current…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Huon, I think it's an empirical claim in the following senses: (1) It is viewed by Kant as empirical, since it comes out of his anthropology, which he viewed as an empirical discipline (and don't be fooled by those interpreters who treat…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Holly, why must it be either-or? I know that this sounds perhaps boring, but in my view a serious part of our nature is pretty stable - in the sense that we cannot change it through our intentional actions, our innovations in modes of conduct, and…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Holly, I fear to lose the current anthropologists in our conversations by answering your points here. We should think of ways to address their needs, at least sometimes... But if you would like to have some clues about Kant's views about…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Thanks all for your patience; I was busy with a deadline. Let me concentrate in a first (probably even then incomplete) response on those of Allen’s and Holly’s which concern the current anthropologist’s interest in…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Today only a short collective reply to your comments. All of them are very thought-provoking; many many thanks! I apologize I do not have the time to respond to all of them in detail. But I hope I can structure our discussions a bit and carry…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Peter, while Kant's views on freedom have changed, let me add that in most respects what they have done is that they have grown. For instance, while in the first Critique the issue is the apparent conflict between two kinds of causality…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Keith, what you say about anthropology - being an "anti-discipline, drawing on and contributing to all the disciplines", may be said with good reasons of psychology (and has been said by Paul Baltes, a leading developmental…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Hello Peter, welcome! Your question - which as you can see from Huon's reply is one that moves others too - is bound to be quite complex, because of Kant's notoriously difficult and partly changing views about freedom and natural…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear John, thanks for pushing me. The foundation of my remarks consist in what I have sorted out as 6 basic anthropological assumptions (section 5(I) in the paper). Because of these, a Kantian anthropologist views human behavior as how the agent…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"I think I agree, at least if I abstract from the remark about positivism (see my reply to Keith today) - a brief question, though: What do you mean by "ontological diversity"?"
Mar 26, 2012
Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Keith, sorry for the delayed reply. I owe you two replies, given that you posted two comments - very fine and thought-provoking ones. 1. Your first comment - especially the last paragraph ("So is that it, Kant as a historian without the…"
Mar 26, 2012
Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear John, a nice and cogent distinction of interests in Kant. We should keep it in mind in our discussions and I agree that our highest goal should ultimately be (3). For (3), (1) and (2) are not always necessary, but in pursuing (1) and…"
Mar 25, 2012
Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Huon, I wholehartedly agree. And I would ultimately always come back to question (2). I have been asked a number of question to be subsumed under (1), and tried to explain Kant's views - actually, restricting myself mostly to what's…"

Thomas Sturm replied to Huon Wardle's discussion OAC Press Working Paper 12: Thomas Sturm on Kant's cosmopolitan point of view in history.
"Dear Philip, there is no doubt that these questions are legitimate, don't worry. Let me ask back: Assuming that Kleingeld is correct, do you think there is anything wrong with Kant's notion of (a) moral/political cosmopolitanism and (b)…"
