Thomas Hill presents a set of essays exploring the implications of basic Kantian ideas for practical issues. The first part of the book provides background in central themes in Kant's ethics; the second part discusses questions regarding human welfare; the third focuses on moral worth - the nature and grounds of moral assessment of persons as deserving esteem or blame. Hill shows moral, political and social philosophers just how valuable moral theory can be in addressing practical matters.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This collection brings together work of the calibre that has made Thomas E. Hill, Jr., a leader in the interpretation and development of Kant's ethics. Hill exhibits a rare combination of sensitivity to complex moral issues, insight into Kant's texts, and analytical incisivenss. In clear, jargon-free prose, these essays expertly draw the reader into the core of Kantian moral philosophy. * Ethics *
Human Welfare and Moral Worth gives us plenty to think about ... the volume has the great virtue of defending positions that are subtle and reasonable as well as innovative and engaging. * Ethics *
