Patrick Frierson draws on Kant's transcendental idealism and his theory of the will and describes how empirical influences can affect the empirical expression of one's will in a way that is morally significant but still consistent with Kant's concept of freedom. As the first work on Kant to integrate his anthropology with his philosophy as a whole, it is an unusually important source of study for all Kant scholars and advanced students of Kant.Read more
- Cambridge pretty much dominates current Kant scene so a different monograph on a fascinating topic in this context is guaranteed to get a good deal of attention

Review of the hardback: 'Many recent works insist upon the importance of anthropology in Kant's thought: Frierson is the first to grasp fully and address directly the central problem posed by anthropology for Kant's metaphysically and morally robust account of moral freedom...This is a work that students on Kant's ethics will find instructive and stimulating, and that future studies of Kant's anthropology will have to contend with.' Susan Shell, Boston CollegeSee more reviews
Review of the hardback: '… this book will be of considerable value to students of Kant's philosophy of religion… Much has been written on these topics in recent years, but Frierson managed to bring a fresh pair of eyes to them and to raise a series of penetrating questions about the interpretation and coherence of Kant's account.' Journal of Religious Studies
