In the Seventh Proposition of the Idea for a Universal History with a
Cosmopolitan Aim, Kant advocates the establishment of a federation of
states with coercive powers to enforce its laws. He states that a “cosmopolitan condition,” which such a worldwide federative body would create, is
required for the security and stability of its member states. Their security
and stability, in turn, are required in order to facilitate the complete
development of the human predispositions for the use of reason, which
Kant suggests is the final end of human history
