Overview

Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals by Immanuel Kant

This expanded edition of James Ellington’s preeminent translation includes Ellington’s new translation of Kant’s essay Of a Supposed Right to Lie Because of Philanthropic Concerns in which Kant replies to one of the standard objections to his moral theory as presented in the main text: that it requires us to tell the truth even in the face of disastrous consequences.

This is some tought reading even thought the book is very short. Be sure to use a dictionary and have lots of time to spend digging into the material and piecing together what Kant is trying to say. Besides that this is a pretty good book with some sound and insightfull ideas.
