Item Description: [Königsberg nach 1766]., 1766. 8vo (116 : 100 mm). 1 3/4 S. Gedanken über die Gesellschaft und über den Geschmack. "V. Das vornehmste Mittel das Vergnügen des Lebens irgend wo zu finden ist die Gesellschaft. Daher die gesellschaftliche Neigung und Bedürfnis, aber nach langer Erfahrung die Sehnsucht zu einer retraite abgesondert von der Gesellschaft zu leben . Der Mensch sucht unter seines gleichen Eintracht die Natur will aber Zwietracht um unaufhörlich einen Sporn der Thätigkeit und Beeiferung zu geben. Freundschaft aus affection ist eine bloße Idee. Gesellig ist der so selbst ein angenehmes Glied jeder gesellschaft seyn kan. Meine lieben Freunde es giebt keinen Freund .". Befriedigung und Glücksgefühl in der Gesellschaft erlange man nur durch nützliches Handeln für die Gesellschaft. ". Man kan seinem Leben in seinen eignen Augen nur einen Werth geben durch das was man thut nicht durch das was man genießt ein nützlicher Mann ist zugleich ein glüklicher Mann vornemlich je mehr er den Eigennutz gebändigt hat. Sonst in Zerstreuung das Wohlbefinden zu suchen macht das Gemüth in der Einsamkeit leer und zur schreklichen Verlassenheit und Einöde .". - Die zweite Seite unter der Überschrift "Geschmack" enthält Überlegungen zur Ästhetik. ". Was auch ohne alles Interesse gefällt ist schön. Was interessirt aber nur so fern es von dem Subject selbst hervorgebracht oder als ein solches möglich betrachtet wird ist gut. Was gefällt aus objectiven Gründen aber nicht durch Begriffe ist Schön ." (zitiert unter Auflösung der von Kant häufig gebrauchten Abkürzungen). - Leicht stockfleckig. - Das Blatt stammt aus Kants Handexemplar seiner 1766 in Königsberg erschienenen Schrift "Beobachtungen über das Gefühl des Schönen und Erhabenen", das vom Autor mit zahlreichen Einfügungen versehen war. Am Unterrand ein zweizeiliger Nachtrag von der Hand des 1836 verstorbenen Pfarrers Christian Friedrich Puttlich, der bei Kant Vorlesungen gehört hatte und aus dessen Nachlaß das Blatt stammt. - Mit unbedeutenden Abweichungen erstmals veröffentlicht von Arthur Warda unter dem Titel "Drei lose Blätter aus Kants Nachlass" in der Altpreussischen Monatsschrift, Band XXXX, Heft 7/8, wovon ein Separatabdruck hier beiliegt.

Item Description: Riga Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1781. Octavo (20.5 x 12.3 cm). Engraved title vignette and a few small engraved vignettes in text; some light marginal spotting, occasional light marginal browning or staining. Contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine with orange label lettered in gilt, edges red; extremities rubbed, sides scuffed; modern cloth box, orange label. First edition of Kant' most highly regarded work. Critik der reinen Vernunft is one of the most influential works in the history of philosophy. In the preface to this first edition Kant explains what he means by a critique of pure reason: "I do not mean by this a critique of books and systems, but of the faculty of reason in general, in respect of all knowledge after which it may strive independently of all experience." Before Kant, it was generally held that truths of reason must be analytic, meaning that what is stated in the predicate must already be present in the subject (for example, "An intelligent man is intelligent" or "An intelligent man is a man"). In either case, the judgment is analytic because it is ascertained by analyzing the subject. It was thought that all truths of reason, or necessary truths, are of this kind: that in all of them there is a predicate that is only part of the subject of which it is asserted. If this were so, attempting to deny anything that could be known a priori (for example, "An intelligent man is not intelligent" or "An intelligent man is not a man") would involve a contradiction. It was therefore thought that the law of contradiction is sufficient to establish all a priori knowledge. 'The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of "pure reason"; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame. Kant's achievements in other branches of philosophy were equally distinguished and fruitful. His methods. dominated western philosophical thought throughout the 19th century, as they do today' (PMM).

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition of Kant's greatest work, the CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON, widely considered the most influential book in philosophy since Aristotle. Warda 59; Adickes 46. 'Kant does, I must say, make writers like Locke and Berkeley, and indeed Hume, excellent though they are, look to me rather like amateurs' (Sir Geoffrey Warnock in discussion with Bryan Magee, The Great Philosophers, BBC Books, 1987, p. 187). 'Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy. The infuence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas.

Of the two main systems which preceded his own, Kant had little or no sympathy with the metaphysical categorization of the Cartesians, and inclined more to the empirical methods of Locke and Leibniz The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy.

Item Description: Königsberg, Martin Eberhard Dorn, 1746. 8vo. Nice newer full vellum with gilt spine. Title-page a bit soiled and with neat reapair to blank margins, far from affecting text. A bit of occasional browning and soiling. one plate repared from verso, no loss. Title-page + 16 pp. + pp. (3) - 240 + 2 folded engraved plates. Fully complete. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Kant's debut, the first work that he ever published, at the mere age of 22. The work constitutes a milestone in the modern discussion of dimensionality.Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) - now considered, along with Plato and Aristotle, the most important philosopher of all time -, entered the university of Königsberg at the age of 16, in 1740. Here he studied mainly mathematics and physics under Martin Knutzen and Johann Teske, until his father's death in 1746. These years proved formative for the young philosophical genious, and his profound interest in the philosophy of science stems from this period. When his father died, however, Kant was forced to break off his studies to help provide for the family, which he did by working as a private tutor for three different families over a period of about nine years. Finally in 1755 he was able to resume his studies at the university, and the same year he received his doctorate of philosophy; in 1770 he was finally given a permanent position, as professor of logic and metaphysics at the University of Königsberg. It is here that he writes the works that have changed the entire trajectory of modern thought - his three seminal critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason, and that of judgment. The foundation of Kant's philosophy is laid during his early years of studying, which culminate is this his first publication, "Thoughts on the True Estimation of Living Forces", which constitutes an attempt to determine space dimensionality from a physical law. Kant initially adapted Leibnitz's view and tried to explain the nature of space by means of the forces of monads that cause such substances to interact. Although its basic idea was abandoned during his critic period, Kant's first work nonetheless constitutes amilestone in the modern discussion of dimensionality. "The two main influences on Kant in his philosophical reflections on science were Leibniz and Newton. During his first period of study at the University of Königsberg, from 1740 to 1746, Knutzen taught that version of Leibniz's metaphysics which the German philosopher Christian von Wolff had made popular. He also taught the mathematical physics which Newton had developed. He revealed to the young Kant the various oppositions, puzzles, and contradictions of these two great natural philosophers. The nature of space and time was what interested the young Kant most in these disputes between Leibniz and Newton. He studied the famous exchange of letters between Leibniz and Samuel Clarke, a defender of Newton's philosophy. [.] In his early years Kant pondered the nature of space and time first from the point of view of Leibniz and then of Newton, but eventually he found both positions unsatisfactory." (Ellington, in DSB: VII, pp. 225-26). The nature of space and space dimensionality that Kant attempts to uncover and explain in this his first work comes to found a basis for all his later thought. The role that physics, especially the concepts of space and time, plays for his view of the world and for the development of his philosophical thought is immense, and his earliest thoughts on the subject understream all of his later thought.Warda nr. 1.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1781. 8vo. Very nice later (probably around 1920, signed "F. Dudik, Aachen) pastiche-binding of brown half calf with elaborate blindtooling and gild lettering to spine. A bit of wear to extremities, especially corners. A bit of soiling to inner blank margin of title-page. One tiny wormhole to blank margin of first four leaves. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy. (24), 856 pp. Rare first edition of Kant's monumental main work, arguably the most important work in the history of philosophy since Aristotle.The "Critique of Pure Reason" took Kant about a decade to write, and the work is of the utmost scarcity. It is due to this work that Kant became world famous as one of the three or four greatest philosophers of all times, and the work fundamentally changed the face of philosophy. With this work philosophy is finally provided with a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. "In 1770 Kant became professor of logic and metaphysics, and at this point there is a sudden falling off in number of his publications. The cause of this became clear eleven years later when "The Critique of Pure Reason" appeared; and with it Kant became famous. Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy.

Item Description: Berlin u. Libau, Lagarde und Friederich, 1790. 8vo. Completey uncut. Very nice marbled paper binding with paper label to spine. An excellent copy. LVIII, 476 pp., 1 f. (Errata). The rare first edition of Kant's seminal "Critique of Judgment", the third and last of his critiques which, taken together, arguably constitute the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In the "Critique of Judgment", Kant develops philosophical aesthetics and teleology that comprises nature and art. This aesthetics fulfills an essential systematic function in the Kantian architectonic. It bridges the gap between reason and nature, thus serving as a complement to practical reason of which Kant had proposed a critique two years earlier.The third critique is essential to an understanding of Kant's project of a critical philosophy. It is here that he seeks to join the dimensions of human experience which he had laid bare in the two previous critiques. A number of the conceptual foundations he had laid from 1782 break down, as he tries to demonstrate that aesthetics mediates between the realm of sensibility and that of reason.In order to do so, he sets out to show that aesthetic intuition ranges over both realms. The key to this demonstration is the claim that the two realms are isomorphic. However, as Kant considers the aesthetic judgment of the products of man's artistic invention, he cannot fit them into the format of a teleology of nature. Instead, he develops a conceptual framework for aesthetic judgment which explains why the first section on the faculty of aesthetic judgment swelled to the point of dwarfing the section on the teleology of nature.In the third critique the tension which inhere in the project of a critical philosophy rises to the surface. The third critique thus provides us with an invaluable glimpse into the actual workings of the mental faculties that Kant attempted to chart in his philosophy. For this very reason, the third critique provided the point of departure for much of later idealist philosophy, especially that of Hegel whose speculative philosophy can be seen as an articulation of the topics which Kant had uncovered in the third critique.

Item Description: Kl.-8vo (161 x 100 mm). Titel, 114 S. Halblederband mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung. Königsberg, chez Frédéric Nicolovius, [Janvier] 1796. Erste französische Ausgabe von Immanuel Kants Gedanken zum Ewigen Frieden, die ihren Verfasser auch als einen der geistigen Gründerväter der UNO ausweist. Intendiert wurde dieser völker- und weltbürgerrechtliche Entwurf zu einem univesalen Friedensvertrag unmittelbar durch den 'Basler Friedensschluss', den Frankreich und Preussen am 5. April 1795 besiegelten. Zur Leipziger Buchmesse Ende September 1795 aufgelegt, veranlasste Kant umgehend eine Uebertragung ins Französische und liess sie "als erste Ausgabe überhaupt" (H. F. Klemme) um einen Zusatz vermehrt (Geheimer Artikel zum ewigen Frieden) in Königsberg im Januar 1796 veröffentlichen. Im Herbst desselben Jahres wurde diese französische Uebersetzung im Verlag Jansen et Perronneau unverändert nachgedruckt und auf Seite 113 des 'Magazine encyclopédique' annonciert. "Dieser Vorgang ist umso bemerkenswerter, als die 'Kritik de reinen Vernunft' erst 1835 ins Französische übersetzt wurde. Er erklärt sich durch die weitgehend politisch motivierten Bemühungen einer Reihe deutscher Emigranten, die von Kant eingeleitete 'kopernikanische Wendung' des philosophischen Denkens, welche auf französisch durch "révolution copernicienne" wiedergegeben wird, als deutsche Parallele zur französischen Revolution darzustellen" (Heinz Wismann). Dies geht deutlich aus den seit März 1795 in der Zeitschrift Le Moniteur abgedruckten Leserbriefen und der ebendort am 3. Januar 1796 von Ludwig Ferdinand Huber anonym veröffentlichten Zusammenfassung der 'Friedensschrift' hervor. In diesen Zusammenhang gehört auch der wiederholte Versuch, einen direkten Kontakt zwischen Immanuel Kant und dem in den revolutionären Verfassungsdebatten wortführenden Abt [Emmanuel-Joseph] Siéyès herzustellen . Um den Gerüchten über seine Beziehungen zu Siéyès ein Ende zu setzen, liess Kant am 7. März in den Königsbergischen Gelehrten und Politischen Zeitungen ein ausdrückliches Dementi abdrucken. Insofern ist das unter dem Titel Antwortschreiben des Professors Kant in Königsberg an den Abt Siéyès in Paris 1796 aus dem lateinischen Original übersetzte "in Umlauf gebrachte Elaborat mit Sicherheit eine Fälschung. Unter den hinterlassenen Papieren von Siéyès ist übrigens vor einiger Zeit eine von Karl Wilhelm Théremin hergestellte französische Nachschrift der Antwort Kants an Karl Ludwig Théremin vom 9. März 1796 entdeckt worden, in der Kant ihn bittet, dem Abt Siéyès seine Vorstellungen hinsichtlich des 'rein literarischen' Projekts, seine Werke in Frankreich bekannt zu machen, zu übermitteln. In der Liste der Werke, deren Übersetzung Kant nahelegt, fehlt allerdings die Schrift Zum ewigen Frieden. Möglicherweise lässt sich diese Auslassung als Indiz dafür interpretieren, dass die Übersetzung 'unter den Augen des Autors' bereits im Gange war. Es ist überdies durchaus denkbar, dass Kant von der Vermittlungsinitiative eines anderen Grenzgängers wusste, der am 10. Januar 1796 Siéyès eine komprimierte französische Fassung des Textes geschickt hatte. Es handelt sich um Karl Friedrich Reinhard, der als französischer Botschafter bei den Hansestädten akkreditiert war und dessen Sendung im Nachlass von Siéyès wiederaufgetaucht ist . " (Heinz Wismann). - Hs. Besitzeintrag auf Titel und S. 100 unten. Commandeur en chef, 4e corps de la Grande Armée (Stempel auf Titel und S. 100). Die Kommandanten des vierten Corps waren sukzessive: Soult (1805-1808), Masséna (1809), Eugène de Beauharnais (1812-1813), Bertrand (1813) und Gérard während der Cent Jours (1815).

Item Description: Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1787. 8vo. Original blue paper boards with original orange-brown paper spine. Contemporary handwritten paper title-label to spine. Minor wear to extremities and spine a bit soiled. All in all very fine. Internally light brownspotting, as usual. One leaf with a neat repair to inner blank margin, not affecting any lettering. Old owner's inscription to front free end-paper. XLIV, 884 pp. The very important second edition of Kant's monumental main work, -arguably the most important work in the history of philosophy since Aristotle. The text of the second, by Kant himself much enlarged and revised, edition is considered the standard version of the "Critique of Pure Reason" - the so-called B-text - and the basis text for all later editions of the work; thus the present version of the work constitutes one of the most important and influential texts in the history of philosophy. The "Critique of Pure Reason" took Kant about a decade to write, and in 1781 the first edition, which is a rarity, appeared. Kant kept working on his magnum opus, and in 1787 the much revised and enlarged second edition of it appeared. It is due to this work that Kant became world famous as one of the three or four greatest philosophers of all times, and the work fundamentally changed the face of philosophy. With this work philosophy is finally provided with a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. "In 1770 Kant became professor of logic and metaphysics, and at this point there is a sudden falling off in number of his publications.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1788. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with gilt title-label to spine. Spine and corners a bit rubbed, but fine, tight, and completely unrestored. Internally very nice and clean. An excellent copy. Woodcut title-vignette. 292 pp. First edition of Kant's second main work, the second of his critical works, and his main work on practical philosophy. Together Kant's three critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason and that of judgement, make up the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In his "Critique of Practical reason" Kant establishes the "Categorical Imperative", which was to found modern ethics, and with it he establishes the moral philosophy that ties together all of his critical philosophy. The work has dominated Western ethical thought decisively from the time of its appearance.Warda: 112. See also Printing and the Mind of Man 226 (Critik der reinen Vernunft).

Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut rod with floral vine-headpiece on p. 3, and woodcut end-vignette (rod with leaves). 222 pp. The rare first edition, first issue, of Kant's masterpiece, the more popular exposition of the ideas presented in his main work "Critik der reinen Vernunft" (1781). Three variants of the first edition appeared in the same year, distinguishable by head- and tailpieces; this is the first, as described in Warda, 75.This work constitutes a more comprehensible exposition of the main thoughts of Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason", and the "prolegomena", being one of the most frequently read and most approachable of his works, also became one of Kant's most influential. It is responsible for spreading his thoughts among a much wider audience than his other works. After having received immense negative critique and having been misunderstood with the first edition of the "Critique of Pure Reason", Kant wrote his "Prolegomena" as a defense and explanation; he later incorporated much of it into the second edition of the "Critique of Pure Reason". It is with the ideas expounded in this work that Kant becomes world-famous. "Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy. The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. - No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1788. 8vo. A bit later (1840'ies) half cloth with gilding to spine. Old allegorical stamp to title-page; another stamp at lower margin removed, likewise old owner's name.Otherwise a very nice copy. Woodcut title-vignette. 292 pp. First edition of Kant's second main work, the second of his critical works, and his main work on practical philosophy. Together Kant's three critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason and that of judgement, make up the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In his "Critique of Practical reason" Kant establishes the "Categorical Imperative", which was to found modern ethics, and with it he establishes the moral philosophy that ties together all of his critical philosophy. The work has dominated Western ethical thought decisively from the time of its appearance.Warda: 112. See also Printing and the Mind of Man 226 (Critik der reinen Vernunft).

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Sammelband of four pre-critical works: (1) Der einzig mögliche Beweisgrund zu einer Demonstration des Daseyns Gottes. Königsberg: Johann Jakob Kanter, 1763. First edition. 'Kant's early writings such as "The One Possible Basis for a Demonstration of the Existence of God" engage the concept of God in terms of principles and arguments that had been framed by the metaphysical systems of Leibniz and Wolff as well as by the theoretical structure of Newtonian physics. Kant had not yet articulated a definitive break with the approach of the rationalist metaphysics of his predecessors, so his discussions presuppose the validity of the enterprise of constructing an adequate theoretical argument for the existence of God. Even so, he makes a number of points in these works that prefigure key arguments that his mature critical philosophy will later raise against the way rationalist metaphysics had traditionally treated the status and function of the concept of God. In particular he has already formulated a central feature of the main objection that he will raise against the ontological argument in the Critique of Pure Reason, namely, that existence is not a predicate' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Adickes 33. (2) Versuch den Begriff der negativen Größen in die Weltweisheit einzuführen. Königsberg: Johann Jacob Kanter, 1763. First edition of the important essay in which Kant can be seen responding to 'Hume's Problem' about causality, the problem which he later said had first awoken him from his dogmatic slumber (Prolegomena, 1783). 'After reading Hume's Enquiry concerning Human Understanding in German translation sometime after 1755, Kant distinguishes between real and logical grounds/opposition in his "Attempt to Introduce the Concept of Negative Magnitudes into Philosophy" (1763) in order to avoid Hume's objection that there is no logical contradiction in the existence of one thing not following the existence of another. But in this work he is also interested in exploring the notion of a real ground/opposition further by applying it more widely, e.g., to bodies, mental states, etc.' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Adickes 34. (3) Träume eines Geistersehers, erläutert durch Träume der metaphysic. Riga und Mietau: J.F. Hartnoch, 1766. Second printing (the same year as Kanter's first) of "Dreams of a Spirit-Seer", the famous discussion of Swedenborg, and 'the only book for which Kant ever came close to apologising' particularly because of 'the scatological German outspokenness' of a sentence at the end of the third chapter (see Kuehn, p. 172). Of Swedenborg's original work Russell quips 'four copies were sold, three to unknown purchasers and one to Kant' (A History of Western Philosophy, p. 732). Adickes 40. (4) Beobachtungen über des Gefühl des Schönen und Erhabenen. Riga: Friedrich Hartknoch, 1771. Third edition of "Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime" (first published in 1764). This was actually Kant's most popular work, going through eight printings during his lifetime. Light-hearted in tone, it includes comments, typical of the age, on the differences between the sexes and between races. John Zammito and others have viewed it as a kind of proto-anthropology, prefiguring some of Kant's later work. Adickes 38. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4 works in one volume, 8vo, 205, [1], [viii], 72, 128, [ii], 110 pp., contemporary half vellum over speckled boards, spine hand-lettered, rubbed, moderate worm damage to surface of front board, faint stamps to first title-page and two other leaves, some light browning and spotting, all very good copies.

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1783. FIRST EDITION. 1 blank leaf + TP + [3]-222 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition, First Printing (Warda 75). This, Kant's defense of his Critik der reinen Vernunft, is considered by many to be his most beautiful and comprehensive book. It continues to be read and admired as one of his most concise and approachable works. The book was written primarily to remove some of the misunderstandings and bewilderment that had greeted the release of the first edition of the Critik in 1781. Kant felt that he had been severely misunderstood and hence, unfairly criticized - most especially by Garve in his review of the book in the Göttinger Gelehrten Anzeiger. The principal contents of the Prolegomena were subsequently incorporated by Kant into the second edition of the Critik der reinen Vernunft in 1787. First printing with the floriated bar headpiece on page [3] (rather than the second and third printings that have the two cherubs headpiece - Warda 76 & 77) and the floriated bar on page 222 (rather than the bar with climbing leaves - Warda 76 - or a small ornamental piece with climbing flora - Warda 77). Finally, on page 78, line 8 the word "subjektiv" appears rather than "objektiv" - which was corrected in the two later printings. Contemporary ¾-leather with sprinkled light-tan boards. Spine with five raised bands and gilt lettering to label. Spine edges a bit worn and corners slightly bumped. Small rectangular cut-out to top corner of the front free end paper. Light toning to title page opposite cut-out. Very occasional pencil marginalia. A truly lovely copy of one of Kant's most important and popular works. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1788. FIRST EDITION. TP + [3]-292, small Octavo. First Edition (Warda 112). The second major Critik, in which Kant undertakes a more elaborate survey of moral concepts and assumptions than in his Grundlegung zur Metaphysik der Sitten of 1785."The Critique of Practical Reason aims at the coordination of human intellect and conscience, stressing that moral action may be accompanied by pleasure, but should on no account be determined by it. Moral conduct should be guided only by criterion of duty, which Kant considered the sole foundation of human freedom, this concept resting upon the submission of the individual will to the sublime moral law" (Garden Ltd., #162).

The term ‘categorical imperative’ refers to an unconditional or absolute moral law, the validity of which does not depend on the ends achieved by its application. According to Kant, there was only one such law, which he formulated variously; one of his formulations was: ‘Act only on such a maxim as you can will that it should become a universal law.’ The Critique of practical reason is the primary source for Kant’s ethical doctrines and also for his views on the function of practical or moral reason in the attainment of knowledge" (Norman Library).Adickes 67.

"He sets these consequences out in his lectures on ethics and develops them in detail later in his 1797 Metaphysic of Morals. To judge him by the Groundwork and the Critique of Practical Reason taken together, is to do less than justice to the scope of his ethical reflections" (Encyclopedia of Philosoph6y, IV, p. 318).
