Auxter challenges the prevailing view that Kant's ethic is ateleological and shows how Kant defines the goals humnan beings ought to pursue. Auxter begins by discussing the subtlety of the critical solutions to the classical problem of reconciling natural and moral teleologies.He systematically explores the teleological dimension of Kant's practical philosophy - explaining how goals are derived, how they fit together into a comprehensive moral order, and how the elaboration of this ideal affects the selection of a right action. Auxter argues for a new understanding of the relationship between virtue and right action, and concludes with a Kantian theory of moral commitment.
