"Kant is the central figure of modern philosophy. He sought to rebuild philosophy from the ground up, and he succeeded in permanently changing its problems and methods. This new, revised edition of the Prolegomena, which is the best introduction to the theoretical side of his philosophy, presents his thought clearly by paying careful attention to his original language. Also included are selections from the Critique of Pure Reason, which fill out and explicate some of Kant's central arguments (including famous sections of the Schematism and Analogies), and in which Kant himself explains his special terminology. The first reviews of the Critique, to which Kant responded in the Prolegomena, are included in this revised edition. The volume is completed by a historical and philosophical introduction, explanatory notes, a chronology and a guide to further reading."--Jacket

Kant's 1788 follow-up to his epochal Critique of Pure Reason analyzes the practical aspects of reason, which is concerned with will, or self-determination. He argues that the freedom of the will becomes the practical necessity of determining how one shall lead one's life, with the fundamental principle of morality being the "categorical imperative" stating that one should be obligated to act so that any moral action could be made into a universal law binding all mankind
