    Kant’s Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals, first published in , is still one of the most widely read and influential works of moral philosophy. This Broadview edition combines a newly revised version of T.K. Abbott’s respected translation with material crucial for placing the Groundwork in the context of Kant’s broader moral thought. The tireless construction of a metaphysical system, in his philosophy, meets the surprising open-endedness and skeptical honesty of his proposed solutions. He was simultaneously a source of new dogmas and the destroyer of old - and even, ultimately, of his own Like the black hole of Königsberg, Kant sucks in everybody who gets too close/5().

    Evidently, rationalists were sensitive to this sort of charge, and they sought to provide a rationale for their redrawing of disciplinary boundaries within philosophy.

The French Catholic philosopher Jacques Maritain () addressed the question of paradoxical self-contradiction in the human heart by means of a metaphysical distinction between individuality.

Jacques Maritain was born in Paris on Novem The book is an extended metaphysical riff on Thomas's pregnant statement that "person is that which is highest in all of nature" (ST 1,29,3).

Such thought shares the same ground as ontological personalism, which is founded, that is to say, on the essence of the human individual and on his or her unitary reality.
