Agency and Autonomy in Kant’s Moral Theory

Reath, Andrews (Fellow, 1991-92)

Oxford, UK: Clarendon Press, 2022

From the publisher's description:

Andrews Reath presents a selection of his best essays on various features of Kant's moral psychology and moral theory, with particular emphasis on his conception of rational agency and his conception of autonomy. Together the essays articulate Reath's original approach to Kant's views about human autonomy, which explains Kant's belief that objective moral requirements are based on principles we choose for ourselves. With two new papers, and revised versions of several others, the volume will be of great interest to all students and scholars of Kant and of moral philosophy.
