Mankind has been at war with one another since the beginning of time and has continually experienced its heartache and devastation. This vicious pattern will continue until we find a way to satisfy ourselves without the added "benefit" of drenching our hands in blood. This is the challenge that Immanuel Kant has addressed in this work. It could contribute much to the cause for peace if those with the ability to effect change should care to listen and act upon his ideas. Legislation is proposed within this book, with the various articles of law already intact, in general form, for the world to consider. Currently, billions of dollars are spent on war every day while millions of children starve who could otherwise be fed. This book is for the many individuals and organizations that promote world peace, and for the world leaders who don't. Before we can approach the elimination of war, it is best to know exactly what war is and why we engage in it. Kant does a brilliant job in revealing this, along with the actions we should take. Are we ready for the answers he gives? It is up to us to appreciate the wisdom of these ideas and then work toward positive change and future progress.

From the Publisher:

Library of Liberal Arts title.

From the Back Cover:

Immanuel Kant was a philosopher, with a philosophy that seems singularly unlikely to encourage a philosopher to take history seriously. The intelligible world under universal moral law and the world of nature under universal causal law seem the upper and lower millstones of this philosophy, between which all life would be crushed out of history.
