Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the reconstruction of the Kant's theory of the ideal of the highest good, especially according to the view point of action organization and specifically with regard to the performance review. It discusses the difference between the highest original and highest derived good and emphasizes that the highest original Good characterizes the idealized will structure (and action structure). The idea of the maximum expression of practical freedom is, however, associated with certain demands on the exercise of free will by each actor, namely in terms of both the individual as well as in terms of the collective practice. The chapter discusses the moral theology. Kant's relationship to God has been often debated in the reception history of the philosophy of the enlightenment. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: action organization; idealized will structure; Kant's theory; moral theology; practical freedom
