Overview

The second of Kant's three critiques, Critique of Practical Reason forms the center of Kantian philosophy. Published in 1788, it expands upon the central themes of Kant's school of thought with a vigorous defense of Christianity that positively affirms the soul's immortality and the existence of God. This seminal text in the history of moral philosophy offers the most complete statement of Kant's theory of free will and a full development of his practical metaphysics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A translation of Kant's Kritik der praktischen Vernunft, completed by H. W. Cassirer in 1976 (his first draft was written 30 years earlier), and lightly prepared for publication posthumously by editors G. Heath King and Ronald Weitzman. Cassirer aimed to provide a technically accurate rendering of Kant's text which is attentive to the spirit as well as the letter of Kant's original, while showing the movement of his thinking as it unfolds. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
