This book, sure to become a standard reference work, is a comprehensive, lucid, and systematic commentary on Kant's practical (or moral) philosophy. Kant is arguably the most important moral philosopher of the modern period. Using as nontechnical a language as possible, Professor Sullivan offers a detailed, authoritative account of Kant's moral philosophy - including his ethical theory, his philosophy of history, his political philosophy, his philosophy of religion, and his philosophy of education - and demonstrates the historical, Kantian origins of such important notions as 'autonomy', 'respect for persons', 'rights', and 'duties'. An invaluable resource, this book will be extremely useful to advanced undergraduates, graduates, and professional philosophers alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Sullivan writes in the light of Kant's entire writings on action, reason and morality and includes accounts of the philosophy of religion, of history and of politics. He does so in a way that is clear and definite with a sequence and balance of topics that seems to me very good ... there is no other book in English that offers such a comprehensive, broadly accurate yet accessible treatment.' Onora O'Neill, University of Essex
"...it provides a framework within which individual works can be located and some helpful guidance through their complexities. One might wish that it could be a reader's first introduction to Kant's moral theory." Mary Gregor, San Diego State University, in Review of Metaphysics
"Perhaps even more effectively than Kant himself, Roger J, Sullivan attempts to carry out Kant's project of moral self-understanding...Kant seems to have found a new voice in this extraordinarily lucid commentary...a fairly comprehensive account of the whole of Kant's practical philosophy which is both readable and intellectually challenging. Sullivan's expository style successfully illuminates aspects of Kant's moral philosophy that would typically be overshadowed by excessive criticism and well intentioned attempts to reconstruct a more acceptable reading. This is a remarkable achievement and one suspects that this work will become a standard reference for students of Kant's moral theory for some time to come." Peter P. Cvek, The Review of Politics
