Kant and the Creation of Freedom

A Theological Problem

Christopher J. Insole

Changing Paradigms in Historical and Systematic Theology

  • Systematically relates strands of Kant's thought that have not been adequately integrated before: his theology, his conception of freedom, and his theory of knowledge.
  • Engages with a wide range of Kant's texts from 1749 until the early 1800s. Many of the texts analyzed have received little or no attention in Kant studies to date, and some have never been translated into English.
  • Demonstrates a connection between debates found in Aquinas, Leibniz and Suarez, and some peculiar and hard to understand passages in Kant's critical philosophy.
  • Reaches a new conclusion that Kant has all along been struggling with the issue of the 'concursus' between God and human beings.
  • Clearly written and sign-posted, with fundamental points of Kant interpretation clearly set out for the non-specialist.
