Many would argue that since Kants day, the study of the starry heavens has advanced while ethics has stagnated, and in particular that Kants ethics offers an empty formalism that tells us nothing about how we should live.

In Acting on Principle Onora ONeill shows that Kantian ethics has practical as well as philosophical importance. First published in 1975, the book is regarded as a classic account and defence of the Kantian ethical position. It addresses Kants account of reasoning about action, in particular his controversial claim that the Categorical Imperative guides action and is basic to ethics and justice. This second edition offers a substantial new introduction and updated bibliography, and will be valuable for a wide readership in Kant studies and those studying ethics.
