Description

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.
