A Post Kantian View of the European Union and Brexit

03 April 2018

Professor Simon Glendinning, London School of Economics

We are used to thinking about the European Union as a political project. However, the history of its idea has its origins not in international politics but cosmopolitan philosophy, and in particular the projection of a European ‘pacific federation’ in the writings of Immanuel Kant. This lecture explored these philosophical roots and assessed their relevance to the still faltering political project we see today.
