By Immanuel Kant
Released in 1785, the foundation of the Metaphysics of Morals is among the strongest texts within the heritage of moral inspiration. during this e-book, Immanuel Kant formulates and justifies a ideally suited precept of morality that concerns common and unconditional ethical instructions. those instructions obtain their normative strength from the truth that rational brokers autonomously impose the ethical legislation upon themselves. As such, they're legislation of freedom. This quantity comprises the 1st facing-page German-English variation of Kant's foundation. It provides a brand new, genuine variation of the German textual content and a gently revised model of Mary Gregor's acclaimed English translation, in addition to editorial notes and an entire bilingual index. will probably be the version of selection for any scholar or pupil who's no longer content material with interpreting this imperative contribution to fashionable ethical philosophy during the veil of English translation.
