Kants Ethics: The Good, Freedom, and the Will is a systematic examination of Kants ethics that recognizes the central importance of the good in relation to duty as forming a unified whole, in accordance with Kants intent. The book attempts a systematic account of Kants ethics as he developed it over a period of more than 40 years. Kants Ethics includes an analysis of the tripartite nature of the will in its dynamic unity and the relation of the will to the good. An appendix, Kant at Auschwitz, briefly considers a serious problem for Kants political philosophy that follows from his insistence on obeying civil authority.
