Kant on the Frontier: Philosophy, Politics, and the Ends of by Geoffrey Bennington

By Geoffrey Bennington

Frontier: the border among nations; the bounds of civilization; the limits of proven wisdom; a brand new box of task. At a time while all borders, obstacles, margins, and boundaries are being—often violently—challenged, erased, or strengthened, we needs to reconsider the concept that of frontier itself. yet is there even this sort of suggestion? via an unique and ingenious interpreting of Kant, Geoffrey Bennington casts doubt upon the conceptual coherence of borders.

The frontier is the very part of Kant’s concept but the everlasting frustration of his conceptuality. Bennington brings out the frontier’s complicated, abyssal, fractal constitution that leaves a residue of violence in each frontier and complicates Kant’s most sensible arguments towards cosmopolitanism and perpetual peace.

Neither a critique of Kant nor a go back to Kant, this publication proposes a brand new mirrored image on philosophical interpreting, for which considering the frontier is either crucial and a recurrent, fruitful, interruption.
