A defence of Kant's deontological conception of ethics. The author offers reflections on two supposed problems with Kant's ethics: that it leaves no room for supererogatory actions and that it overemphasizes the value of acting from duty.

Review:

"Carefully argued and persuasive. . . . Baron's mode of faithful restoration rather than apologetic adaptation makes a refreshing change from much of the recent writing by friends of Kant's ethics. . . . Her book offers valuable reflections about two supposed problems with Kant's ethics: that it leaves no room for supererogatory actions and that it overemphasizes the value of acting from duty. . . . Baron's forthright defenses of Kant are each carried out with admirable thoroughness and fair-minded attention to the ample secondary literature."--Ethics

"Baron has written a careful, diligent defense of Kant's deontological conception of ethics. . . . The book combines exemplary scholarship, philosophical sophistication, and sensitivity to moral concerns. Highly recommended."--Choice

"Baron's book marks an important contribution to the burgeoning field of Kantian ethics . . . and may be recommended to non-specialists."--Times Literary Supplement

"This work will be of particular interest to readers who have been following recent philosophical discussions of issues such as impartiality and partiality in ethics or the apparent tension between acting from friendship (or love) and acting on principle. It also quite nicely exemplifies some significant developments which have taken place in the interpretation of Kant's ethics, most notably an increased recognition that Kant 'is far more concerned with character and conduct over a long period of time than with the moral worth or lack thereof of isolated actions.'"--Theological Studies

"This book is clearly an important addition to contemporary discussions of Kant's ethics."--Philosophical Review
