Publisher's Summary

In this book, Kant's ethical system is clearly stated and carefully critiqued. In the process, cogent answers are given to the following questions:

What is the relationship between self-interest and morality?
What is the relationship between morality and rationality?
What is the nature of rationality?
What is the difference between rationality and intelligence?
What is the relationship between awareness of moral norms and awareness of logical norms?

A must-listen for anyone interested in philosophical psychology, moral epistemology, or Kant interpretation, this brisk monograph provides a long-overdue alternative to the dreary and opaque tomes on which Kant aficionados have thus far had to rely.
