Critique of Practical Reason: And Other Works on the Theory of Ethics (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading)by Immanuel Kant
<%PUBCOMMENTS%>Critique of Practical Reason is the second of Immanuel Kant's three 'critiques,' the three pillars of his Critical philosophy. It reinstates in philosophical discourse the notions of human freedom, God, and the immortal soul - notions which, in the first Critique, had been shown to be unsuitable in their traditional applications. The ideas of pure practical reason and transcendental conditions of our moral activity, are given a home in the Critique of Practical Reason. Thus, the second Critique is the fulfillment of Kant's important promise in the first Critique, "to deny knowledge, in order to make room for faith."<%END%>
About the Author:
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) has been caricatured as a stiff German professor whose Stoic habits were so predictable that the people of Königsberg, his hometown, could set their clocks by his daily walks. Kant's life is best described as a heroic struggle to discover order within chaos or, better, an effort to fix human thought and behavior within it proper limits. He lived and worked during the Enlightenment, a time when political, religious, and intellectual freedom erupted across the Western world.<%END%>

I ordered this book and 11 other books for a relative. My relative never got the books. Also B&N could not even track the books, telling me that even though I had a tracking number, the books somehow disappeared. I am very upset. B&N ordered replacements and I am waiting to see if my relative would receive them. I will not use B&N to send books anymore.
