¿Es posible una fundamentación trascendental de la ética?
Consideraciones en torno de un “fracaso”

Did Kant fail in his attempt to give a transcendental foundation to ethics? In this paper, I maintain that historically considered, Kant never attempted such a thing. But at the same time, I argue that transcendental philosophy plays an important role in the growth of moral knowledge. Beyond the founding aspect, transcendental philosophy has made (and probably will make) discoveries on moral matters. But, it is important for the old and the new transcendental philosophy to (1) recognize its own basic theories, and (2) limit its foundational claims.
