Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


An excerpt from the 1995 William W. Cook Lecture Series

Immanuel Kant said that world harmony will arise from a community of democratic nations linked together by international commerce. However, the theoretical possibility of such harmony is not a guarantee of its fruition.

Kant said that it is one's duty to work towards this theoretical possibility; I want to speak of our duty as citizens of the world's leading democratic and capitalist nation to help further this possibility today.
