This is the first book dedicated to a systematic exploration of Kant's position on colonialism. Bringing together a team of leading scholars in both the history of political thought and normative theory, the chapters in the volume seek to place Kant's thoughts on colonialism in historical context, examine the tensions that the assessment of colonialism produces in Kant's work, and evaluate the relevance of these reflections for current debates on global justice andthe relation of Western political thinking to other parts of the world.

The present collection provides evidence of the complexity, diversity and evolving nature of Kant's thinking. He tackles the problems of race and colonialism at various stages of his philosophical career. Each stage evinces a slightly different hue to his thinking... This lively collection seeks to discover to what extent these wrongs can be mitigated and possibly made right, largely from within a Kantian perspective. Through careful analysis of Kant's writings, theauthors seek to demonstrate the extent to which Kant shared the mindset of the ascendant European colonizers and to what extent he is critical of it.
[T]his volume is highly instructive and the right starting point for anyone who wants to understand Kant's position on colonialism.
a highly valuable book for many readers...
