With particular focus on imagination, Bernard Freydberg presents a close reading of Kant's second critique, "The Critique of Practical Reason". In an interpretation that is daring as well as rigorous, Freydberg reveals imagination as both its central force and the bridge that links Kant's three critiques. Freydberg's reading offers a powerful challenge to the widespread view that Kant's ethics calls for rigid, self-denying obedience. Here, to the contrary, the search for self-fulfilment becomes an enormously creative endeavour once imagination is understood as the heart of Kantian ethics. Seasoned scholars and newer students will find a surprising and provocative view of Kant's ethics in this straightforward and accessible book. Bernard Freydberg is Professor of Philosophy at Slippery Rock University. He is author of "Imagination and Depth in Kant's Critique of Pure Reason"; "The Play of the Platonic Dialogues"; and "Provocative Form in Plato, Kant, Nietzsche (and Others)".
