Product Description

Review

“Lara Denis’s subtle updating of Thomas Abbott’s classical translation of Kant’s Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals may be the best for both students and general readers. Her clear and concise introduction highlights Kant’s central claims and arguments while pointing the reader to the best of contemporary Kant scholarship. Her judicious selection of materials from Kant’s other major works in moral and political philosophy―touching upon Kant’s theory of the highest good, his conception of the possibility of evil as part and parcel of the possibility of freedom, his humane conception of virtue and the virtues, and much more―provide even the first-time reader with precisely the context that is necessary in order to avoid misunderstanding the Groundwork. As an added bonus, Denis includes key responses to Kant from Fichte, Schiller, and Hegel as well as Henry Sidgwick’s 1888 critique of ‘The Kantian Conception of Free Will,’ perhaps the single most important article on Kant’s ethics ever written. All in all, this volume is a brilliant introduction to one of the greatest works in the history of Western philosophy.” ― Paul Guyer, University of Pennsylvania

“This is an outstanding new edition of Kant’s Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals. Two main features make it an invaluable introduction to Kant’s moral philosophy. The first is the appendices, which include carefully selected excerpts from Kant’s other works in moral philosophy and classic criticisms of Kant’s ideas by his contemporaries and other philosophers. The second exemplary feature of this edition is Lara Denis’s concise, careful, accessible yet rigourous introduction. This edition aims to remove barriers to understanding and appreciating Kant’s Groundwork; if I had to choose an ideal edition to set for courses on Kant, it would certainly be this one.” ― Lucy Allais, University of Sussex

HASH(0xa261281c) out of 5 stars This gentleman is a great social scientist. April 19 2016

I discovered an abundance of core educational value in studying Greek Philosophy through this book. From the first paragraph, let alone the first two pages, I focused on how being able to make decisions and create perspective is essential throughout real life and accurate task completion..This seems to be an advanced text which has more potency than The Prince, in terms of science and systematic ethical judgement at least.

HASH(0xa2b5ba8c) out of 5 stars Great Read Feb. 22 2014

A bit dry at points, and all in all the language was complex, requiring some thought as to what the author is trying to say. Certainly an excellent read; Kant brings up some excellent points on what morality is, and should be.

HASH(0xa254399c) out of 5 stars I recommend the Cambridge Edition June 29 2005
By N. Dugal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading and comparing the introduction of this version of the text with the version published by Cambridge University Press. In the latter edition, I found the introduction to be less in the way of circumlocution, yet exceedingly lucid and pithy. Dr. Korsgaard is a pre-eminent scholar in Kantian Ethics, and her introduction alone is what renders the Cambridge edition worthy. The Oxford introduction, while insightful and generally helpful for the layperson, all to often digressed into different interpretations, none of which were too heavily detailed in their illustration. The Cambridge version is concise, as it contains all the information that is needed. It provided a clear map as to how different parts of Kant's conception connected , and thus engendered a synchronic understanding of the overall text.
