About this book

This work presents Kant as a vital revolutionary thinker, showing that his Practical Philosophy has been marred by views that it is formalist and centred on categorical imperative. Discussing his commitment to the notion of rational religion and his treatment of evil, this important study provides a vivid account of Kant's concerns.
