The Place of the Love Phenomenon in I. Kant's Ethical Theory
One of the most criticized ideas in I. Kants ethical doctrine is a statement that moral law is opposite to the feelings of compassion and sympathy. Many researchers reject I. Kant's requirement to eliminate human feelings from any maxima of pure ethical action. In present work an attempt was made to analyse Kantian understanding of such an important human feeling as love. The main aim of the research is to determine the place of this phenomenon in the ethical doctrine of the philosopher and also to detect some antecedent traditions in the history of philosophy, which could influence on I. Kant's opinion about love or become a ground for it.
