Nature volume 127, pages 371372 (07 March 1931) | Download Citation



IT is much to be hoped that this little book will attain a wide circulation. It has several points of special interest, besides being a short handbook of practical morals, easily and pointedly written and with clear anticipation of the great thinker's main construction of ethics, which followed shortly afterwards, in 1781. The interesting literary point is that we have in this book, taken down very fully or written out immediately afterwards, Kant's own words in lecturing, and the result is very similar, from the literary point of view, to most of the works of Aristotle.
