This paper will examine the perfectionist ethical programmes of Leibniz and Wolff, Kantian critiques of these programmes, and the emergence of new forms of perfectionism after Kant whose object is not to promote happiness but the conditions of rightful interaction. Some contemporary applications will be suggested.
