Sample text

Because human nature has reason (or freedom, that is, Rousseauean perfectibility), this process can never be conceived as having an ''end" in the sense of a final state in which the process would be completed and therefore cease, but we must represent it to ourselves teleologically as following an unconscious "plan of nature" that arranges for the endless development of human species capacities (IAG 8:27–28).  In the review of the second volume, Kant replies to Herder's criticism of his own philosophy of history, and especially to Herder's objections (which we would now call "methodological individualist") to the Kantian doctrine that the development of human capacities and human destiny is to be found only in the species as a whole, not in individuals (RH 8:64–66).

The "unification of society" (MA 8:118) What is fundamental to each of these historical epochs is the powers and activities through which human beings live, and the resulting differences and conflicts between groups of people.  This is the way it was during the first epoch.  Kant suggests that it was the resulting conflicts between people that made it impossible for them to share the land in peace and hence served to disperse human beings widely over the surface of the earth, thus occasioning even greater variety in their modes of life and further promoting their perfectibility (MA 8:118).

For this reason, there is also no room in Kant's theory of history for the prospect of abolishing the state at some point in the historical future.  4:17–23). The most beneficial fruits of civilized life were "sociability and civil security"; they enabled agricultural societies with urban centers to colonize new territories, increasing the geographical area dominated by the new and more civilized way of life (MA 8:119).  9 "With this epoch there also began the inequality among human beings, that rich source of so much evil, but also of all good; and henceforth this inequality was only to increase" (MA 8:119).
