The present paper rebuilds some essential topics about the debate on kantian normativity, identifying the most convincing readings that have gathered together normativity and subject’s motivational aspect. According to this perspective – where normativity is taken from a «first person» point of view – a revaluation in a pragmatic-anthropological sense becomes fundamental. In his anthropological treatment, Kant offers the idea of a subject that is no more «ein vernünftiges Wesen», but becomes a real human subject, an empiric person who acts basing its actions on uncertain awarenesses and complex motivations. Furthermore, in this Kant’s analysis comes out a specific idea of «awareness’chiaroscuro».
