Editorial Reviews


"In this rich and rewarding new book, Allen Wood...succeeds at delivering a defense of Kantian ethics that should satisfy, in terms of its philosophical credentials, any philosopher interested in ethics...Allen Wood's book remains an indispensable contribution to contemporary ethical theory."
-Noell Birondo, Pomona College, Notre Dame Philosophical Review

"Wood offers an interpretation of Kant's own ethical theory and a rational reconstruction and defense of Kantian ethics, as there are topics -- such as marriage, punishment, race, and sex -- where Kantian ethics lead to conclusions different from those of Kant himself...This book will enable readers to learn more about the current debates [on Kant]...Highly recommended."
-J.M. Fritzman, Lewis and Clark College, Choice

"Kantian Ethics is an important and challenging book. The position that it presents is original and its argument is supported by an exceptional knowledge of Kant's thought, of the Kantian literature and of ethical theory more broadly."
-Michael Rosen, Harvard University, The Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

In this book, Allen Wood investigates Kant's conception of ethical theory, using it to develop a viable approach to the rights and moral duties of human beings.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is by far the best and most complete book I have read about Kant's ethics, but the author doesn't stop there, and actually develops an ethical theory that is sustainable even today. Interestingly, this theory is much closer to Kant's actual thought than most interpretations made to this day, so this book marks a new dawn of enlightened ethical thought amidst postmodern contemporary theories.

The book is farely easy to read (for a philosophy book), and only difficult when needed.
