Philosophers who wonder about what is good and desirable are not members of a mystical religion or conscientious administrators of the sublime, but rather they are those who show us a little more clearly the purpose we were looking for. Theory must not abandon its commitment to the way people live and act, i.e. with “customs” in their broadest sense. Kant wrote some of his moral reflections as a theory of customs, expressing what turned out to be a very good moral theory: reflection on our usual practices and our common value judgments, one that is rather associated with them so as not to end up with unusual conclusions and from a sufficient distance from life to be able to clarify and correct it.
