Book Description

Few books have had as great an impact on intellectual history as Kant's The Moral Law. In its short compass one of the greatest minds in the history of philosophy attempts to identify the fundamental principle 'morality' that governs human action.

Supported by a clear introduction and detailed summary of the argument, this is not only an essential text for students but also the perfect introduction for any reader who wishes to encounter at first hand the mind of one of the finest and most influential thinkers of all time.



Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) ranks with Plato and Aristotle as one of the most important philosophers in the history of western thought.


'It seems possible that this handy edition may render a real service to social good by enabling the English reader to learn for himself the content of a philosophical classic.' - The Guardian
