CRITIK DER PRACTISCHEN VERNUNFT BY IMMANUEL KANT

(Critique of Practical Reason)

Publication Date: 1788

A work which in elaborating the ideas of his Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals represents a major development of his ethical thought following the Critique of Pure Reason. In this Kant succeeded in establishing the principle of ethics by means of an analysis of the ordinary moral consciousness, as actually given. He holds it to be the task of philosophical ethics to discover and think out the principle which the practical human reason involuntarily employs. He first exhibits the ethical phenomena or data; secondly, finds the law of which these are evidences; thirdly, discovers the force which operates according to this law. #0542
