Kant: Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals, v1, 04 Sep 2007.
Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals
(Grundlegung zur Metaphysik der Sitten)
Immanuel Kant, (1724-1804)
Translated by Thomas Kingsmill Abbott.
This work has been translated under a number of titles, including ‘Groundwork for the Metaphysic of Morals’; ‘Grounding for the Metaphysic of Morals’; and (in the Paton translation, which is still under copyright) as ‘The Moral Law’.
A concise statement of Kant’s moral thinking. Ethics should be detached from thoughts about consequences. Instead it should be based on a priori reasoning, using the Categorical Imperative.
I have added a TOC, restored italics, and hyperlinked notes.
