Course Description

Which matters more: our intentions or the consequences of our actions? Kant (1724- 1804), probably the most important philosopher since Aristotle, says it’s our intentions. His writings tend to be difficult to read and understand, but I think they make a lot of sense when carefully considered, which we’ll do together. We’ll read his Groundwork to the Metaphysics of Morals (the only thing most people read of his moral philosophy) as well as some of his later works and interesting essays. I’ll be using Immanuel Kant: Practical Philosophy, from Cambridge University Press ($30ish used; $50ish new). Required material: Immanuel Kant, Mary J. Gregor, Practical Philosophy (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Immanuel Kant); $33.99
