The world republic as Kant's alternative to permanent peace

Session

Political Science

Description

The purpose of this paper is to interpret Kant's philosophical-political concepts of the world republic. In the book "Towards Permanent Peace" which takes the form of an international treaty, he encourages a new world order. Our normative interpretation consults different studies on Kant’s work. It is seems that for Kant the problem of the world government is the problem of lasting peace, since for him humanity has the following alternatives: either lasting peace or a serious danger of total destruction. He is of the idea that political peace between states takes the form of an alliance for peace, which is at the same time different from the peace treaty and the world republic, as the latter seeks to put an end to all wars, while the former aims only at ending the war that has already started.
