Korsgaard's wonderful interpretation and elaboration of Kant's ethical philosophy, accompanied by several other critical essays. Kant's ethical thought has suffered under a widespread perception of coldness and inhumanity, compounded by his own obtuse writing style. In Korsgaard's hands, Kant's philosophy is revealed as deeply concerned with human values and goodness.
