Publisher's Summary

The Critique of Practical Reason was published in 1788, seven years after Immanuel Kant's major work, Critique of Pure Reason

In it, Kant sets out his moral philosophy - and it proved a seminal text in the history of the subject. He argues that the summum bonum (the highest good) of life is that rather than just pursuing happiness, people should inhabit a moral dimension that enables them to deserve the happiness that God can give. Though much shorter than Critique of Pure Reason, this is the sourcebook for Kant’s ethical doctrines. 

It is divided into five sections: Preface, Introduction, First Part: Elements of Pure Practical Reason, Second Part: Methodology of Pure Practical Reason, Conclusion. 

The translation is by Thomas Kingsmill Abbott.

Worldly wisdom by sacred philosophy

By the matter of fact, this book may be related to morality things. However Kant who is subject-derived thinker, comes from rationality by scienetific ovservation. He seeks worldly wisdom through all sacred tradition of philosophy. I think that makes his critic be in utmost height of enlightment.

My First Immanuel Kant Treatise

I was very pleased to learn that Mr. Kant underscores the importance of aligning our thoughts and actions to what God rightly expects. With that said, he also puts the highest premium on the attention to a scientific approach to human understanding. As a Christian, I heartily agreed with the former. unfortunately, the latter fails the test of revealed biblical truth; i.e. man has a sin problem, and Christ is the only answer for it.

Michael Lunts did a great job reading the text! Ukemi has once again done a superb job in producing this audiobook.
