In this book, Allen Wood investigates Kant's conception of ethical
theory, using it to develop a viable approach to the rights and
moral duties of human beings. By remaining closer to Kant's own
view of the aims of ethics, Wood's understanding of Kantian ethics
differs from the received 'constructivist' interpretation,
especially on such matters as the ground and function of ethical
principles, the nature of ethical reasoning and autonomy as the
ground of ethics. Wood does not hesitate to criticize and modify
Kant's conclusions when they seem inconsistent with his basic
principles or fail to make the best use of the resources Kantian
principles make available. Of special interest are the book's
treatment of such topics as freedom of the will, the state's role
in securing economic justice, sexual morality, the justification of
punishment, and the prohibition on lying.
