From the Back Cover:

Late in the eighteenth century, Immanuel Kant published several influential works of moral philosophy, writings that even his staunchest critics acknowledge represent the efforts of one of the most profound thinkers of the modern age.

Reflecting the philosopher's increasing stature and a resurgence in innovative scholarship, The Blackwell Guide to Kant’s Ethics presents a collection of original essays that address a wide variety of topics crucial to our understanding of Kant's moral philosophy and its implications. The essays' broad range of ideas is ensured through contributions by both well-established Kant scholars and rising stars in the field. Readings serve to illuminate and put into perspective issues that Kant addressed in his later writings, including his idea of a good will and formulations of the Categorical Imperative, along with his concepts of virtue, duties to oneself, justice, punishment, and international relations. Further insights are garnered through extensive introductory commentary by the editor that put the essays in context. And in an original concluding essay, noted Kant scholar Arnulf Zweig shares some personal reflections on the enduring value of Kant’s ethics.

Informed by impeccable scholarship, The Blackwell Guide to Kant’s Ethics is a thought-provoking new work that will enhance our understanding of Kant's ethical theories while offering provocative insights into the mind of one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Western philosophy.
