Example text

9 The account in the Religion examines the formal structure of volition with a particular concern for the incentives informing a given maxim. The reason we cannot simply sort maxims into two camps - those with a moral incentive and those with an incentive that is sensuous - is that for Kant every maxim contains both moral and and sensuous incentives (p. 36; p. 31). This standpoint is in keeping with Kant's general view of human nature as simultaneously rational and finite, but he had never before made the point so clearly and explicitly in connection with the issue of maxim-making.

Indeed, the entire argument for the existence of God can be taken as the complex unfolding of an implicit confidence in the rationality of the universe. This view of the matter becomes clearer if we notice that Kant's argumentation is sustained both by the moral law's demand for virtue and by a certain rational demand for symmetry and proportion that, strictly speaking, has little or nothing to do with morality in the Kantian sense. Without this second feature, Kant's argument could not sustain the momentum necessary to yield the rational mosaic that is the final product of his practical philosophy.

Whatever else its merits, Kant's easy (and unargued for) equation of "virtue" and "worthiness to be happy" is certainly not a moral equation by this Kantian standard. " Without happiness in proportion to virtue, the universe will not suddenly be less moral - but it will be less symmetrical. This view of the matter means that, if God's existence is postulated by Kant on the grounds that there must be a causality adequate to proportioning happiness to virtue, then God enters Kant's scheme by riding on the coattails of the principle of proportionality.
