Description

The Metaphysical Elements of Ethics

by Immanuel Kant translated by Thomas Kingsmill Abbott

These are such moral qualities as, when a man does not possess them, he is not bound to acquire them. They are: the moral feeling, conscience, love of one's neighbour, and respect for ourselves (self-esteem). There is no obligation to have these, since they are subjective conditions of susceptibility for the notion of duty, not objective conditions of morality.

About the Author:

"Immanuel Kant (22 April 1724 - 12 February 1804) was an 18th-century German philosopher from the Prussian city of Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad, Russia). He is regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of modern Europe and of the late Enlightenment.

Immanuel Kant was born in 1724 in Konigsberg, as the fourth of nine children (five of them reached adulthood). He was baptized as 'Emanuel' but later changed his name to 'Immanuel' after he learned Hebrew. He spent his entire life in and around his hometown, the capital of East Prussia at that time, never traveling more than a hundred miles from Konigsberg. His father Johann Georg Kant (1682-1746) was a German craftsman from Memel, at the time Prussia's most northeastern city (now Klaipeda, Lithuania). His mother Anna Regina Porter (1697-1737), born in Nuremberg, was the daughter of a Scottish saddle/harness maker. In his youth, Kant was a solid, albeit unspectacular, student. He was raised in a Pietist household that stressed intense religious devotion, personal humility, and a literal interpretation of the Bible. Consequently, Kant received a stern education - strict, punitive, and disciplinary - that favored Latin and religious instruction over mathematics and science."
