Reviews

'... consistently rich and rewarding - both as a study of Kant and as a discussion of virtue. She engages with a wide range of Kant's writings, drawing particular attention to passages that many of Kant's readers (myself included) have tended to ignore.' Colin Marshall, Mind
'... refreshing, creative, and careful ... a deeply rewarding work for anyone interested in Kant's picture of mind and morality.' SGIR Review
'Merritt's book is a very thoughtful and original treatment of foundational interpretive and philosophical problems. I have found studying Kant on Reflection and Virtue very rewarding, and I am certain that any readers interested in Kant or in Kantian ethics and epistemology will take a lot away from it.' Ethics
