Understanding Purpose is an exploration of the central concept of natural purpose (Naturzweck) in Kant's philosophy of biology. Kant's work in this area is marked by a strong teleological concern: living organisms, in his view, are qualitatively different from mechanistic devices, and as a result they cannot be understood by means of the same principles. At the same time, Kant's own use of the concept of purpose does not presuppose any theological commitments, and is merely "regulative," that is, it is employed as a heuristic device

Understanding Purpose is an exploration of the central concept of natural .

Understanding Purpose is an exploration of the central concept of natural purpose (Naturzweck) in Kant's philosophy of biology. Traditionally ( Fox Keller, 2000;Huneman, 2007), the first explicit assertion of the inherent connection between self-determination, teleology and biological organisation can be traced back to Immanuel Kant's Critique of Judgement (1790). Unlike any other kind of systems, Kant explains, organisms can be characterised as natural purposes, as they are capable of organising themselves, that is they have the capacity of self-organising.

The North American Kant Society (NAKS) was founded in 1985 at the Sixth International Kant Congress, held at the Pennsylvania State University. The goal of the society is to further the study of Kantian thought and scholarship from a variety of traditions and disciplines. Kant and the Concept of Community. University of Rochester Press.

Understanding Purpose is an exploration of the central concept of natural purpose (Naturzweck) in Kant's philosophy of biology. Kant's work in this area is marked by a strong teleological concern: living organisms, in his view, are qualitatively different from mechanistic devices, and as a result they cannot be understood by means of the same principles. At the same time, Kant's own use of the concept of purpose does not presuppose any theological commitments, and is merely "regulative"; that is, it is employed as a heuristic device. The contributors to this volume also investigate the following key historical questions relating to Kant's philosophy of biology: How does it relate to European work in the life sciences that was done before Kant arrived on the scene? How did Kant's unique approach to the philosophy of biology in turn influence later work in this area? The issues explored in this volume are as pertinent to the history of philosophy as they are to the history of science -- it is precisely the blurred boundaries between these two disciplines that allows for new perspectives on Kantianism and early nineteenth-century German biology to emerge.
