Foundations of the metaphysics of morals, and What is enlightenment? by Immanuel Kant( Book )

36 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immanuel Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals ranks alongside Plato's Republic and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics as one of the most profound and influential works in moral philosophy ever written. In Kant's own words its aim is to search for and establish the supreme principle of morality, the categorical imperative. Kant argues that every human being is an end in himself or herself, never to be used as a means by others, and that moral obligation is an expression of the human capacity for autonomy or self-government. This edition presents the acclaimed translation of the text by Mary Gregor, together with an introduction by Christine M. Korsgaard that examines and explains Kant's argument
Practical philosophy by Immanuel Kant( Book )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first English translation of all of Kant's writings on moral and political philosophy collected in a single volume. No other collection competes with the comprehensiveness of this one. As well as Kant's most famous moral and political writings, the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals, the Critique of Practical Reason, the Metaphysics of Morals, and Toward Perpetual Peace, the volume includes shorter essays and reviews, some of which have never been translated before. The translation of the Metaphysics of Morals by Mary Gregor appears in a new edition to conform to the guidelines of the Cambridge Edition and to reflect some widely accepted textual emendations adopted in a recent German edition of that work
Critique of practical reason by Immanuel Kant( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kant's 1788 follow-up to his epochal Critique of Pure Reason analyzes the practical aspects of reason, which is concerned with will, or self-determination. He argues that the freedom of the will becomes the practical necessity of determining how one shall lead one's life, with the fundamental principle of morality being the "categorical imperative" stating that one should be obligated to act so that any moral action could be made into a universal law binding all mankind

The metaphysics of morals by Immanuel Kant( Book )

31 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and German and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Metaphysics of Morals is Kant's major work in applied moral philosophy in which he deals with the basic principles of rights and of virtues. It comprises two parts: the 'Doctrine of Right', which deals with the rights which people have or can acquire, and the 'Doctrine of Virtue', which deals with the virtues they ought to acquire. Mary Gregor's translation, revised for publication in the Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy series, is the only complete translation of the whole text, and includes extensive annotation on Kant's difficult and sometimes unfamiliar vocabulary. A new introduction by Roger Sullivan sets the work in its historical and philosophical context. -- Back cover

The conflict of the faculties = Der Streit der Fakultäten by Immanuel Kant( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay, originally written by Immanuel Kant in 1798, and presented in both the original German and in facing page English translation, is the first paperback printing of the edition published by Abaris Books, Inc., In 1979. The book is composed of three parts, written at different times, but all dealing with the conflict between the "lower" faculty of philosophy, which is answerable only to individual reason; and the faculties of theology, law, and medicine, which get "higher" precedence in the world of affairs and whose teachings and practices are of interest to the government. Kant makes clear the close alliance between the theological faculty and the government that sanctions its teachings, but can also resort to force and censorship. Therefore, it is argued, the faculty of philosophy is more vital and precious since it encourages independent thought before action and must be protected from censorship in its inevitable conflict with the theological faculty. The first of the three parts is called "The Conflict of the Philosophy Faculty with the Theology Faculty," and is essentially a vindication of the right of the philosophical faculty to freedom of expression. The other two parts, examine the conflict of the philosophy faculty with the faculties of medicine and law, the one preserving the physical "temple" and the other regulating its actions. Part 1 has three appendices covering (1) the conflict between the theology and philosophy faculties, (2) the possible duration and practical use of the Bible, and (3) the subject of mysticism in religion. Notes by the translator are included. (Glr)

Anthropology, history, and education by Immanuel Kant( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthropology, History, and Education, first published in 2007, contains all of Kant's major writings on human nature. Some of these works, which were published over a thirty-nine year period between 1764 and 1803, had never before been translated into English. Kant's question 'What is the human being?' is approached indirectly in his famous works on metaphysics, epistemology, moral and legal philosophy, aesthetics and the philosophy of religion, but it is approached directly in his extensive but less well-known writings on physical and cultural anthropology, the philosophy of history, and education which are gathered in the present volume. Kant repeatedly claimed that the question 'What is the human being?' should be philosophy's most fundamental concern, and Anthropology, History, and Education can be seen as effectively presenting his philosophy as a whole in a popular guise
Anthropology from a pragmatic point of view by Immanuel Kant( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View essentially reflects the last lectures Kant gave for his annual course in anthropology, which he taught from 1772 until his retirement in 1796. The lectures were published in 1798, with the largest first printing of any of Kant's works. Intended for a broad audience, they reveal not only Kant's unique contribution to the newly emerging discipline of anthropology, but also his desire to offer students a practical view of the world and of humanity's place in it. With its focus on what the human being "as a free-acting being makes of himself, or can and should make of himself," the Anthropology also offers readers an application of some central elements of Kant's philosophy. This volume offers a new annotated translation of the text by Robert B. Louden, together with an introduction by Manfred Kuehn that explores the context and themes of the lectures."--Jacket

Kant : Critique of Practical Reason by Immanuel Kant( )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Critique of Practical Reason is the second of Kant's three Critiques, one of his three major treatises on moral theory, and a seminal text in the history of moral philosophy. Originally published three years after his Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals, the Critique provides further elaboration of the basic themes of Kant's moral theory, gives the most complete statement of his highly original theory of freedom of the will, and develops his practical metaphysics. This revised edition of Kant's Critique of Practical Reason - which contains Mary Gregor's acclaimed translation - is now the authoritative translation of this work. A substantial and lucid introduction by Andrews Reath places the mains themes of the Critique in the context of Kant's moral theory and his critical system. For this edition, the introduction has been revised and the guide to the secondary reading completely updated
