We are glad to give notice of the book Kant and the French Revolution, by Reidar Maliks (Cambridge University Press, 2022).
From the publisher’s website:
To Kant, the French revolution’s central events were the transfer of sovereignty to the people in 1789 and the trial and execution of the monarch in 1792-1793. Through a contextual study, this Element argues that while both events manifested the principle of popular sovereignty, the first did so in lawful ways, whereas the latter was a perversion of the principle. Kant was convinced that historical examples can help us understand political philosophy, and this Element seeks to show this in practice.Printable Version
