Kant's Lectures on Ethics : A Critical Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Kant's Lectures on Ethics : A Critical Guide Paperback / softback

Edited by Lara (Agnes Scott College, Decatur) Denis, Oliver (Tulane University, Louisiana) Sensen

Part of the Cambridge Critical Guides series


This is the first book devoted to an examination of Kant's lectures on ethics, which provide a unique and revealing perspective on the development of his views.

In fifteen newly commissioned essays, leading Kant scholars discuss four sets of student notes reflecting different periods of Kant's career: those taken by Herder (1762-4), Collins (mid-1770s), Mrongovius (1784-5) and Vigilantius (1793-4).

The essays cover a diverse range of topics, from the relation between Kant's lectures and the Baumgarten textbooks, to obligation, virtue, love, the highest good, freedom, the categorical imperative, moral motivation and religion.

Together they provide the reader with a deeper and fuller understanding of the evolution of Kant's moral thought.

The volume will be of interest to a range of readers in Kant studies, ethics, political philosophy, religious studies and the history of ideas.
