Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals

Continuing through Kant's work, we proceed from the Theoretical to the Practical.

If you're interested in also doing the second Critique, this edition has the groundwork and the second Critique, as well as the rest of Kant's practical philosophy (including Metaphysics of Morals).

Otherwise, you can get any edition you want for the meetings.

    Some really knowledgeable, learned people attending. Great if one has studied the relevant text (here, the Groundwork) to an adequate degree of depth. No doubt, this discussion would have been beneficial for any scholar in 18th century philosophy.

    Generally, I felt unwelcome. I figured that was the case when I asked if I could sit down and nobody said anything. Maybe it's because I was the new person there, but there were zero introductions, zero kind words exchanged, almost no joking around. That seemed to be the case among the people who looked to be regulars, too, though. It was really weird. I didn't feel comfortable. Name-tags would have been helpful for me; then again, I didn't have much to contribute except my noobie-Kant-questions, so, wouldn't have been that much more helpful.

    Thanks a lot for letting me join in for your little group tonight. Unfortunately for me, I don't have time to read these texts as thoroughly as some others. Law school doesn't permit much juggling with "fun" stuff. I'll be sure not to slow you guys down and remove myself from notifications of group meetings until I get fewer, other obligations. Maybe some other time. Thanks a whole bunch.

    Before you can understand the Good, you have to first understand the Law

      I actually doubt that. He seems to be admittingth at all this 'understanding the law' stuff is only because the good cant be talked about and so is the best we can do

    For some reason, reading Kant's moral philosophy always makes me think of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqPeI7-eVgc

    Kant’s Joke. Kant wanted to prove in a way that would dumbfound the common man that the common man was right: that was the secret joke of this soul. He wrote against the scholars in favor of the popular prejudice, but for scholars and not popularly.
    Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, 193
