Considered one of the most profound, influential, and important
works of philosophy, "Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals"
introduces the famous Categorical Imperative and lays down a
foundation for all of Immanuel Kant's writings. In it, Kant
illuminates the basic concept that is central to his moral
philosophy and, in fact, to the entire field of modern ethical
thought: the Categorical Imperative, the supreme principle of
morality, stating that all decisions should be made based on what
is universally acceptable. Featuring the renowned translation and
commentary of Oxford's H. J. Paton, this volume has long been
considered the definitive English edition of Kant's classic text.
"Kant's "Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals,"" Paton writes in
his preface, "is one of the small books which is truly great: it
has exercised on human thought an influence almost ludicrously
disproportionate to its size."
