The Introduction lays out the overall shape of the book and of the arguments of its individual chapters. It begins with some remarks on the original motivation for the project. The project came to be as part of an effort to understand Hegel’s critique of Kant’s practical philosophy, in particular his charge that Kant’s supreme practical law or categorical imperative is an empty formalism. The Introduction highlights connections between Hegel’s critique of Kant’s practical philosophy and his critique of Kant’s theoretical philosophy.
