15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Max M. Thomas (critique@umich.edu) on June 7, 1998
Format: Paperback
I have used this book as a freshman-level text in my Introduction to Ethics course for years. Unlike many of Kant's books, this one is quite easy to read and understand. It is a translation of his students' notes taken from his lectures on ethics, so it is in the language of undergraduate students. (There is some minor debate as to its accuracy, since it is composed by his students, but I find nothing contrary to books witten by the master's own hand.)
This volume should not be read from the first page to the last. Rather, you should browse through it. The table of contents lists specific topics, such as sex, suicide, prayer, and rights. The novice will enjoy selecting topics of particular interest from that table. As one becomes more familiar with the easier issues of interest, the more challenging sections are less difficult. (The one drawback is the lack of an index.)
Everyone interested in any moral issue should carefully read this vital work in classical ethics.

Even if the translation leaves something to be desired, it's nice to have an affordable version of this important text. Thanks, Hackett!
