Publisher's Summary

In this book, Kant's ethical system is clearly stated and carefully critiqued. In the process, cogent answers are given to the following questions:

  • What is the relationship between self-interest and morality?
  • What is the relationship between morality and rationality?
  • What is the nature of rationality?
  • What is the difference between rationality and intelligence?
  • What is the relationship between awareness of moral norms and awareness of logical norms?

A must-listen for anyone interested in philosophical psychology, moral epistemology, or Kant interpretation, this brisk monograph provides a long-overdue alternative to the dreary and opaque tomes on which Kant aficionados have thus far had to rely.

    Story
    "Kant made interesting"
    What made the experience of listening to Kant's Ethics the most enjoyable?

    the only book about Kant that is either entertaining or informative.


    What other book might you compare Kant's Ethics to and why?

    none. this is the only book about kant, or by kant for that matter, that is good. the kant 'experts' are verminously bad.


    What does Norma Jean Gradsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Norma Jean Gradsky is awesome. She turns this discursive work into a flowing poem.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That rationality is about universal principles.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, if you want to understand Kant, get this book.

    Story
    "lovely and poetic"
    What made the experience of listening to Kant's Ethics the most enjoyable?

    It was almost literary, and yet it really made think much more deeply than I usually do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kant's Ethics?

    The discussion of rationality, how it is different from intelligence

    This was my first. I was very impressed!


    If you could give Kant's Ethics a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Rationality vs. Morality


    Any additional comments?

    brilliant book, and Norma Jean Gradsky sounds like Angela Lansbury!

    "great narrator, solid script"
    If you could sum up Kant's Ethics in three words, what would they be?

    scholarly but good


    What other book might you compare Kant's Ethics to and why?

    maybe strawson's book on kant, but this was better, because it moved faster and was clearer


    What does Norma Jean Gradsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she was fab! a great actress, she made this analytical snooze piece sound like shakespeare


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    the rationality of morality


    Any additional comments?

    good writing, but the topic was boring
