    Not all of the selections in this volume are the complete texts. The edited texts are "On the Common Saying", "Metaphysics of Morals" & "Contest of Faculties." A later edition of this book includes three more short items and a postscript concerning scholarly issues since its first publication in 1970.

    This is a very useful collection of Kant's political writings because they are the philosophical underpinnings of the trend toward transnational governance since 1815, beginning with the Congress of Vienna that established the international system after the Napoleonic wars in Europe, to the League of Nations and the United Nations. Unfortunately the philosophy as philosophy is really bad. The entire teleological argument is founded unfortunately on the naturalistic fallacy.

    Kant aporta la clásica caracterización modernista del Iluminismo: Sapere aude (atreverse a conocer), emergiendo del actual estado de “inmadurez”, y festejando el uso público de la razón en el centro del reino social. Imperio Pág.139

    I only read a handful of these pieces, the ones that focused on history. I was surprised at my ability to understand what Kant was saying, despite never having read his other philosophy. Of course, his views on history are completely bogus and only serve the purpose of strengthening the theoretical existence of the state. Now to read Hegel, to see how these ideas are elaborated.

    Now this was actually a Kant book that I really enjoyed. This is also the book that put his categorical imperative in a practical, social light... easier to understand and written with more clarity than some of his other works

    Read this book for a ethics class. Loved Kant for the endless "Kant" jokes he provided i.e. "Professor I am sorry but I Kant give you a sypnosis of the assigned reading"

    I personally find that Kant's political writings pale in comparison to his work in metaphysics, identity, and/or epistemology. I only read it - and kept reading it - because I had to for school.

    It's a love the sinner, hate the sin thing. Love the philosophy, but oh, dear Cthulhu, the prose!

    Possibly the best primer to Kant's political thought. The translations are very accessible and the introduction is invaluable! Credits: 4th year, undergrad in philosophy and psychology
