Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals, Immanuel Kant
VENDOR: Hackett Publishing Company
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 book is paperback and is recommended reading for Hillsdale's free online course, "Introduction to Western Philosophy"
