To this feeling of respect for the moral law and for persons as subjects of the moral law Kant gives the name moral feeling. As the subjective effect the moral law produces on the human mind, this feeling is nothing other than the moral law's own operation as a subjective determining basis of the will. 7. THE HIGHEST GOOD AND THE ANTINOMY OF PRACTICAL REASON As mentioned earlier, Kant argues in Chapter II that the moral law makes possible a concept of the good that is applicable to ends. This concept is taken up again in the Dialectic of Pure Practical Reason, which begins with an exposition of the idea of the totality of the good, under the name of the 1 INTRODUCTION highest good, an idea that pure practical reason frames simply in virtue of its cognitive function of introducing unity and order into our practical cognition.

According to Kant's own definition of the term, 'speculative' means the same as 'theoretical' (compare the etymology of the two terms) except for being confined to objects beyond any possible experience: see the Critique of Pure Reason, A 634-35 = B 662-63, and cf. below, Ak. V, 47. ] 7 [Or 'practical ability': praktisches Vermögen. ] 8 [Although in the original the parenthesis, as is typical for Kant's writing, occurs at the end of 3 4 PREFACE whether reason is not overreaching itself, by merely claiming such a power.

13 Thus, we have reached here in Theorem IV the first of the three postulates of pure practical reason expounded in the second Critique, in which the ideas of pure reason, though declared in the first Critique to be unsuited for use in theoretical cognition, receive a practically justified application. 5. CAN THE HIGHEST PRINCIPLE OF PRACTICAL REASON BE JUSTIFIED? The exposition of the fundamental principle of practical reason is followed by a section titled Of the Deduction of the Principles of Pure Practical Reason.
