The importance of the highest good in Kant's ethics

Ethics 73 (3):179-197 (1963)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Lewis white beck's "a commentary on kant's critique of practical reason" overlooks the fact that some of the ideas most important to kant's ethics are not presented in the second "critique". It also lacks a necessary emphasis on the notion of the highest good, The unifying theme of the work as a whole. The author traces the role of this concept throughout the second "critique" and shows how kant developed the content of the idea of the highest good in the combined notions of perfection as the moral good and happiness as the natural good.
