"In this rich and rewarding new book, Allen Wood...succeeds at delivering a defense of Kantian ethics that should satisfy, in terms of its philosophical credentials, any philosopher interested in ethics...Allen Wood's book remains an indispensable contribution to contemporary ethical theory." -Noell Birondo, Pomona College, Notre Dame Philosophical Review "Wood offers an interpretation of Kant's own ethical theory and a rational reconstruction and defense of Kantian ethics, as there are topics -- such as marriage, punishment, race, and sex -- where Kantian ethics lead to conclusions different from those of Kant himself...This book will enable readers to learn more about the current debates [on Kant]...Highly recommended." -J.M. Fritzman, Lewis and Clark College, Choice
