Overview

John Ladd has made extensive revisions to his original translation of this work, which now comprises the first part of Kant's Metaphysics of Morals in its entirety.

In a supplementary Introduction written for this edition, Ladd comments on issues raised by the new material, such as the relevance of Kant's conception of marriage to his view of the status of women. An updated bibliography, glossary, and index are also provided.
