About the Authors
  • Immanuel Kant's Metaphysics of Morals (1797), containing the Doctrine of Right and Doctrine of Virtue, is his final major work of practical philosophy. Its focus is not rational beings in general but human beings in particular, and it presupposes and deepens Kant's earlier accounts of morality, freedom, and moral psychology. In this volume of newly-commissioned essays, a distinguished team of contributors explores the Metaphysics of Morals in relation to Kant's earlier works, as well as examining themes which emerge from the text itself. Topics include the relation between right and virtue, property, punishment, and moral feeling. Their diversity of questions, perspectives and approaches will provide new insights into the work for scholars in Kant's moral and political theory.

    • A variety of approaches in these essays ensure a broad range for Kant scholars whether focused primarily on ethical or political theory, history of philosophy, or Kant interpretation and scholarship
    • Covers both the Doctrine of Right and Doctrine of Virtue, appealing to readers in both Kant's moral and political philosophy
    • Contributions are written by leading scholars in this field

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...Kant’s Metaphysics of Morals is full of insightful textual analysis and penetrating philosophical discussion, and the roster of contributors is impressive. Many of the papers raise important issues and will provoke further useful debate."
    --George Lăzăroiu, PhD, Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, New York

    "...Lara Denis’ anthology on Kant’s Metaphysics of Morals brings together a number of critical essays by well-established and respected Kant scholars. This collection is not only an important contribution to Kant scholarship; it can also serve as an excellent companion piece to upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses that feature Kant’s practical philosophy.... There is certainly enough here to satisfy Kant readers of all types and stripes. Denis has assembled an outstanding collection of essays that are dedicated to critically exploring Kant’s Metaphysics of Morals. This is an invaluable guide for reading a crucial text within the Kantian corpus."
    --Chris Henry McTavish, Athabasca University, Philosophy in Review
