On Moral Law and Quest for Selfhood by Mohan Parasain

This book offers an original intersection of concepts from Immanuel Kant's moral command ethics and Søren Kierkegaard's existential ethics. The Kantian formulation of moral law is based on theoretical ground while Kierkegaardian ethics of the quest for selfhood views it as the very act of living. The present work provides an account of both these perspectives and questions whether these approaches to morality are mutually exclusionary. Using Slavoj Žižek's 'parallax view' in the realm of morality, it argues that moral philosophy must engage with a constant critique of 'difference' around which the transformation of our various perspectives to morality revolves. This work appeals for furtherance of the conversation model and participation of perspectives to transcend 'positional confinement'. It advocates the traversing of the ethical parallax to allow for intellectual openness and an empathetic perception of the 'other'.

Engaging and well-researched, this book will be of interest to scholars and researchers of ethics, political philosophy and continental philosophy.<
