Description: The sixth annual St Andrews/Stirling Kant Reading Party will be dedicated to Kant & Adam Smith and take place at Burn House in Angus on 29 July through 1 August 2013. The location of the Reading Party, Burn House, is approximately one hour away from St Andrews and offers excellent opportunities for hiking, and many other leisure activities. The theme of the reading party will be honor and respect in Kant and Smith. We will examine how Kant and Smith understand respect for the law/ respect for general rules, and explore links between their treatment of respect and their views on honor. In doing so we will discuss texts from Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments, Kant’s Second Critique, The Metaphysics of Morals, and Lectures on Ethics.
