Listeners may find themselves nodding along in understanding as they listen to narrator Brian Troxell's emphatic performance of Immanual Kant's seminal text on moral philosophy. Troxell infuses his narration with dynamic energy, and his voice has a familiar quality that makes Kant's theory on morality feel unintimidating. Positioned between the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of Judgment, the Critique of Practical Reason aims to prove the truth of Christianity by establishing the immortality of the soul and the existence of God. Its account of the authority of moral principles based on human autonomy provides the key to Kant's philosophical system.
This seminal text in the history of moral philosophy elaborates the basic themes of Kant's moral theory, gives the most complete statement of his highly original theory of freedom of the will, and develops his practical metaphysics. This new edition, prepared by an acclaimed translator and scholar of Kant's practical philosophy, presents the first new translation of the work to appear for many years, together with a substantial and lucid introduction.
