Superson’s goal is to defeat the skeptic and does not believe self-interest is sufficient enough to do so. I understand the approach Superson is making about self-interest but I don’t think she is looking at all aspects of the topic.

Kant sees this as similar to making moral decisions as the moral choice is not always the desired choice and therefore not in your self interest.
