Kant's famous 'Theory-Practice' essay, first printing, Warda 149, Adickes 78. 'Some of Kant's basic concepts - the categorical imperative and moral autonomy -- seemed post facto rationalization for Rousseau's social contract theory and republicanism. What was only a feeling or intuition in Rousseau became a concept or principle in Kant. These implications of Kant's doctrines became explicit in 1793 when Kant published his famous ‘Theory-Practice’ essay in the Berlinische Monatsschrift. Here Kant argued that there is no gap between theory and practice in politics, and that reason is practical in political as well as moral life. He maintained that the principles of morality, which are determined by pure reason alone, are also binding in politics, and that pure reason provides the basis for a republican constitution involving the principles of liberty, equality and independence. Kant's theses were a direct challenge to August Wilhelm Rehberg, who had made the gap between theory and practice the leitmotif of his critique of the Revolution. Sooner or later, then, he would have to reckon with the sage of Königsberg. His reply to Kant duly appeared in the Berlinische Monatsschrift in February 1794' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The entire Volume 22, 8vo, 616 pp., portrait frontispiece and the six original printed blue wrappers bound in, contemporary blue boards with printed paper spine label, rubbed at edges, generally very good.
