Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following increased emphasis on research projects at the undergraduate level, this book, now in paperback, teaches students how to write good research projects in linguistics. Giving an overview of major themes of linguistics and introducing essential tools and techniques, the book provides

practical advice on how to choose a research topic, collect data, analyse it, and write up the results. Incorporating over 300 project ideas and covering plagiarism, referencing, phonetic and orthographic transcription and tips on writing good English, Projects in Linguistics is a treasure trove of

helpful information vital to students in the field.

Synopsis:

In this classic text, Kant sets out to articulate and defend the Categorical Imperative - the fundamental principle that underlies moral reasoning - and to lay the foundation for a comprehensive account of justice and human virtues.

This new edition and translation of Kant's work is designed especially for students. An extensive and comprehensive introduction explains the central concepts of Groundwork and looks at Kant's main lines of argument. Detailed notes aim to clarify Kant's thoughts and to correct some common misunderstandings of his doctrines.
