The Great Philosophers: Kant

Ralph Walker

‘Happiness is not an ideal of reason, but of imagination.’ Kant

In today’s increasingly fractured world of oppression and uncertainty, Kant’s moral philosophy is more important than ever before. And never has the need for moral absolutes been more pressing than in this age of doubt, disillusion and cynicism.

This is where Kant comes in, as his moral philosophy continues to compel the attention of every serious thinker in the field. Clear, concise – and overwhelmingly convincing – Ralph Walker’s stimulating, highly accessible guide spells out the power and renewed relevance of his thinking: a genuinely objective, absolute basis for a modern moral law.


Ralph Charles Sutherland Walker is an Emeritus Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford. An expert on the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, he was a Rhodes Scholar at Balliol College, before entering academia as a fellow at Merton College in 1968. He moved to Magdalen in 1972 (where, for many years, he was Wine Steward), where he has worked ever since. Apart from focusing on Kant, Walker has also made contributions to the Coherence Theory of Truth, and his books have been translated into numerous languages.
