Freedom and Anthropology in Kant's Moral Philosophy

by

Freedom and Anthropology in Kant's Moral Philosophy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patrick Frierson draws on Kant's transcendental idealism and his theory of the will and describes how empirical influences can affect the empirical expression of one's will in a way that is morally significant but still consistent with Kant's concept of freedom. As the first work on Kant to integrate his anthropology with his philosophy as a whole, it is an unusually important source of study for all Kant scholars and advanced students of Kant.

Synopsis:

It is the first comprehensive account of Kant's theory of freedom and his moral anthropology.
