The author looks into the meaning of law in Kant's practical philosophy for the constitution of a political community. First, he defines the specific character of modern knowledge by referring to Heidegger and Fink and how this knowledge is reflected in Kant's philosophy of moral and law. Then he goes on to define the external legislation and list its applications. After the author has defined Kant's concept of law, he shows how freedom and its security and not happiness, well-being or interest are central to Kant's political philosophy. Freedom becomes the foundation of all activities and laws, and freedom can only be based on law and not moral. Thus, individual freedom is possible solely within a law-abiding community.
