Wood highlight in this book Kant’s most important and moving ideas, above all his idea of the incomparable worth of human autonomy, while pulling no punches about the shortcomings of Kant’s arguments. They carefully explicate and disambiguate Kant’s central concepts and discuss in detail the most notorious problems of interpretation. Kant’s little book is dense and obscure at some of the most crucial points. Students always need a commentary, and this one is very welcome indeed.—Paul Guyer, Brown University
