This is a collection of essays that interpret, examine critically, and extend Kant's moral and political thought on several important topics. The aim is to understand Kant, to address serious objections to his positions, and to explore ways in which contemporary Kantian theory can be fruitfully developed.

The first two essays concern fundamental elements of a Kantian theory: the type of theory it is, the ways in which it is (and is not) pluralistic, and the framework for moral deliberation that it proposes. The next three essays focus on basic respect for humanity: its implications regarding cultural diversity, the grounds for extending basic respect to all persons regardless of their offences, and reasons for treating basic respect as a guide and constraint on deliberation about moral principles rather than a source of rigoristic moral principles. The remaining five essays address recurring questions about social issues: responsibility for the consequences of one's wrongdoing, the justification of punishment, political violence, liberalism's grounds for the legitimacy of state coercion, and the conflict between conscience and authority.
