Kantian vocabulary word of the week

(could be "of the month"?
                                                which is young yet)


often seen rendered as "a mania for spying on the morals of others"
[die Ausspähungssucht der Sitten Anderer]

see § 43 of The Metaphysics of Morals (1797)

A case for the present applicability of this word was made last week, by one Mathieu Potte-Bonneville, here.
