Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Explores the limits of Kantian approaches to the study of international affairs.

Global Limits challenges both the current proliferation of Kantian readings of international affairs and the theoretical foundation Kant is presumed to provide the discipline. By thoroughly examining Kant's writings on politics, history, and ethics within the context of his larger philosophical project, Franke demonstrates that Kant's approach to international politics flatly contradicts many of the debates on which the modern discipline of International Relations rests. Paying specific attention to Kant's philosophy of judgment and the geopolitical vision one may draw from it, Franke concludes that scholars must give up the universal limits offered by concepts such as the international, world, or global, in favor of a far less certain and much more open interpretive framework emphasizing the political.

"A very unique and provocative book that has much to offer both International Relations and Kantian scholars. Franke's use of Kantian primary sources is extensive and appropriate." -- Sharon Anderson-Gold, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Mark F. N. Franke is Instructor of International Studies at the University of Northern British Columbia.
