Immanuel Kant, one of the most foundational thinkers in modern philosophy, brings forth one of his first major works on moral ethics. Within this title, Kant presents the foundations for his view on moral theory from which many other philosophers have based their works. Kant was convinced that there is a supreme principle which controls all valid moral judgement, and that this principle is purely rational in character. This principle must separate itself from any individual differences among men, lest it become relativistic in nature. Unravel all of Kant's insights on the principles of morals in this edition of Immanuel Kant's classic work. This edition of Abbott's translation has been reprinted entirely.
