Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):159-160 (1998)

Creating the Kingdom of Ends consists of thirteen essays published between 1983 and 1993 and centered, according to the author, around two themes: Kant’s Formula of Humanity understood as a theory of value, and Kant’s doctrine of the two standpoints understood as a view of the world as open to our remaking. The resulting readings, often brilliant in their clarity and force, sketch the outlines of a moral theory more concretely situated and congruent with common sense than that with which Kant is frequently taxed.
