Summary
  • 'The main threat to Kant's legacy are today liberal Kantians themselves, from Jnrgen Habermas to Robert Brandom. Against these revisionists who reduce Kant to a benign discourse-ethics, Bjerre's book triumphantly reasserts the unbearable real core of Kant's ethical thought. Bjerre does not treat Kant as an interesting thinker from the past, but as an actual presence - no wonder his book is full of contemporary examples, anecdotes, and jokes. Arguably this is the most important book on ethics in the last decade - a book needed like daily bread!'-Slavoj 聩Pek --
  • 'Henrik Bjerre's Kantian Deeds is definitely among the best studies of Kant - and of ethics in general - that I've read in many years. The basic distinction that Bjerre draws between 'normal' moral acts and the moral deeds pertaining to 'extra-morality' is most forceful and productive, enabling the author to scrutinize and sort out a whole array of problems concerning the rigorous Kantian position in ethics. Not fearing or avoiding the (often radical) political edge of ethics, Bjerre's book represents a most valuable contribution to, and intervention into, the contemporary 'ethics and politics' debate.'-Alenka Zupancic, Slovenian Academy of Arts and Sciences, Slovenia --
  • Kantian Deeds revokes and renews the tradition of Kant's moral philosophy. Through a novel reading of contemporary approaches to Kant, Henrik Joker Bjerre draws a new map of the human capacity for morality. By drawing on two very different resources in contemporary philosophy - more conservative trends in analytic philosophy and more radical sources in recent works of psychoanalytically informed philosophy - and claiming that they must be read together, Kantian Deeds provides a new understanding of what is termed 'the structure of moral revolutions'. Essentially, deeds are revolutionary changes of moral character that can only be performed by such creatures that have acquired one. --Book Jacket
