The state, The law and the ethics in Schopenhauer


  • Francisco Cortés Rodas Universidad de Antioquia


State, law, ethics, Schopenhauer, Kant


This paper tracks the arguments about ethics and philosophy of State sustained in Schopenhauer's work, in an attempt to highlight the meaning to his justifying the relationship between ethics, law and politics. It is also discussed the interpretation Schopenhauer did on Kantian philosophy of law and the Slate. According to Schopenhauer the problem of Kants's foundation of State and law is that, starting from the categoric imperative, the establishing of the State is considered a condition to moral freedom and that the State is there conceived as a condition to freedom in the ethic sense, and thus as a condition to moral as well.
