DescriptionAndrews Reath, University of California-Riverside, works in the area of moral philosophy, in particular Kant's practical philosophy, with additional interests in the history of moral philosophy. His work on Kant has focused on his moral psychology, his conception of autonomy, and the foundational arguments in the Groundwork and the Critique of Practical Reason. In 2006 he published a collection of essays on these topics, Agency and Autonomy in Kant's Moral Theory (Oxford). He has also co-edited (with Jens Timmermann) a collection of new essays on the Critique of Practical Reason's Kant's Critique of Practical Reason: A Critical Guide (Cambridge 2010). Current projects include attempts to understand the sense in which Kant?s Categorical Imperative is a formal principle, Kant's account of free agency, his general conception of rational agency, and a short book on the argument of the Groundwork.

Reception to follow in Stuart 216.
