In the Doctrine of Virtue, Kant underscores the relation between the two kinds of ethical duties to others, which he calls duties of love and duties of respect. The paper will explore the issues concerning this relation, and try to clarify the meaning of it for Kant’s overall account of the duties towards others. I will consider how the position of the Doctrine of Virtue relates to Kant’s previous writings and to other accounts of moral obligations towards others in modern moral philosophy.
