INTRODUCTORY REMARKS
 
OBLIGATION AND THE DELIBERATIVE WILL:A STUDY OF LYOTARD’S READING OF KANT’S PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY
 
Toward the end of the The Postmodern Condition, Lyotard states that ‘ [C]consensus has becomean outmoded and suspect value. But justice as a value is neither outmoded nor suspect’. InLyotard’s view ‘we must arrive at an idea and practice of justice that is not linked to that of consensus’ (PC 66). For the most part, Lyotard’s ‘philosophy of phrases’ may be seen to be hisanswer to this demand for justice. As he comments, ‘a recognition of the heteromorphous nature of language games is the first step’ in the development of an idea and practice of justice not linked toconsensus.One of the underlying questions which is implied by the project undertaken in this thesis isto develop what Lyotard might have meant by a practice of justice that is not linked to that of consensus. What I take to be the fundamental starting point for beginning this project is Lyotard’sIdea of language. Similar to that put forward by Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations,Lyotard suggests an Idea

of language whose symbol is not some rationally or logically structured

Note that I capitalise “Idea” wherever I consider that an idea has a modelling or regulative function.
