Giving Western ideas of philanthropy ( )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book takes up some of the unavoidable questions about charity. If we lived in a wholly just world, would there be any need for charity? Is there genuine altruism at work in philanthropy, or merely the interest of some individual or class? Is there any justification for saying that group self-help does not count as charity? Does charitable giving do more harm than good? Taken together, these varied perspectives on charity constitute a rich and provocative study of something crucial in how we see ourselves in connection with others
Groundwork for the metaphysics of morals by Immanuel Kant ( )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this text, Kant sets out to articulate and defend the Categorical Imperative - the fundamental principle that underlies human moral reasoning - and to lay out the foundation for a comprehensive account of justice and human virtues. Here, Kant explains his conception of a good will and the special value he calls 'moral worth', analyses the difference between moral and non-moral reasons, and presents alternative formulations of the Categorical Imperative. Here too he argues that the moral beliefs presuppose "autonomy of the will" and that they are not based on an illusion."

The invention of autonomy : a history of modern moral philosophy by J. B Schneewind ( Book )
22 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the most comprehensive study ever written of the history of moral philosophy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Its aim is to set Kant's still influential ethics in its historical context by showing in detail what the central questions in moral philosophy were for him and how he arrived at his own distinctive ethical views. In its range, its analyses of many philosophers not usually considered in histories of ethics, and its discussions of the interweaving of religious and political concerns with moral philosophy, this is an unprecedented account of the developments that led up to Kant's ethics. Extensive quotations allow the reader to understand the philosophy through the vocabularies that the philosophers themselves used
Lectures on ethics by Immanuel Kant ( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains four versions of the lecture notes taken by Kant's students in his university courses in ethics given regularly over a period of some thirty years. The notes are very comprehensive and expound not only Kant's views on ethics but many of his opinions on life and human nature as well. Much of this material has never before been translated into English. As in other volumes in the series, there are copious linguistic and explanatory notes and a glossary of key terms
Moral philosophy from Montaigne to Kant : an anthology ( Book )
21 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This anthology contains excerpts from some thirty-two important seventeenth- and eighteenth-century moral philosophers. Including a substantial introduction and extensive bibliographies, the anthology facilitates the study and teaching of early modern moral philosophy in its crucial formative period. In addition to well-known thinkers such as Hobbes, Hume, and Kant, there are excerpts from a wide range of philosophers never previously assembled in one text, such as Grotius, Pufendorf, Nicole, Clarke, Leibniz, Malebranche, Holbach, and Paley. Some of the writers, such as Crusius and Wolff, have never appeared in English before." "Originally issued as a two-volume edition in 1990, the anthology is now re-issued, with a new foreword by Professor Schneewind, as a one-volume anthology to serve as a companion to his highly successful history of modern ethics, The Invention of Autonomy. The anthology provides many of the sources discussed in The Invention of Autonomy and taken together the two volumes will be an invaluable resource for the teaching of the history of modern moral philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

New essays on the history of autonomy a collection honoring J.B. Schneewind ( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kantian autonomy is often thought to be independent of time and place, but J. B. Schneewind in his study, The Invention of Autonomy, has shown that there is much to be learned by setting Kant's moral philosophy in the context of the history of modern moral philosophy. The authors in the collection continue Schneewind's project by relating Kant's work to the historical context of his predecessors and to the empirical context of human agency. This will be a valuable resource for professionals and advanced students in philosophy, the history of ideas, and the history of political thought."--BOOK JACKET

L'invention de l'autonomie : une histoire de la philosophie morale moderne by J. B Schneewind ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tout le monde s'accorde à souligner l'importance que marque, dans le développement de la philosophie morale, la révolution opérée par Emmanuel Kant grâce à l'invention de la notion d'autonomie. Mais comment mesurer l'ampleur, jusqu'à aujourd'hui, de cette révolution si on ne s'interroge pas sur les concepts, questions et problèmes qui lui étaient contemporains et auxquels elle décida de s'attaquer? Telle est bien l'histoire originale et critique de la philosophie morale moderne qu'à écrite Jérôme B. Schneewind, professeur de philosophie à John Hopkins University
