Art/Literary - Philosophy / Kant
Spanish term or phrase: reclamación
Any suggestions as to how to translate "reclamación" in this definition of "lo ético" according to Kant?

Se refiere a deberes éticos fundados en derecho pero que no puede determinar a priori la reclamación.

(It refers to ethical duties grounded in right, but which .... cannot determine a priori?)

Thank you.

English translation:the claim - the statement
Explanation:

It could be "demand", depending on the context.

What is the sentence before this statement?

I am giving a "medium" confidence level, but I am guessing a bit, or a lot, without further context.

¡Saludos!

Notes to answerer
Asker: This is just one bullet point in a list of definitions of "lo ético", so there isn't really any further context. The previous one is "Se refiere al ámbito de la doctrina de la virtud." but I don't think that helps really.

  -> Thank you very much, Ramón. :-) For supporting "the claim"... ;-) Makes sense in the little context.
