Scheler’s Critique of Kant’s Ethics

By Philip Blosser

“The book contains a virtually exhaustive bibliography on the secondary literature on Scheler in the English language. It is characterized throughout by such careful scholarship and philosophical creativity that it constitutes a major achievement in Scheler scholarship.”

Tapio Puolimatka, Philosophi Reformata

“My interest in [Max] Scheler's critique of Kant runs back nearly a decade.... The more I read of Scheler, the more I began to see the value of a project dealing with his critique of Kant in Der Formalismus in der Ethik und die Materiale Wetethik, which would possess the virtue of focusing in a single project three important strands of philosophical interest: phenomenology, Kantianism, and ethics. ...

"The study is divided into six chapters and two appendices. Each of the chapters constituting the body of the work contains a brief analysis of the Kantian position or discussion of the basic questions at issue in it, an exposition of Scheler's critique of the Kantian position and its presuppositions, and a detailed appraisal of Scheler's critique.”—from the introduction by the author
