520    In Kant's Human Being, Robert B. Louden continues and 
       deepens avenues of research first initiated in his highly 
       acclaimed book, Kant's Impure Ethics. Drawing on a wide 
       variety of both published and unpublished works spanning 
       all periods of Kant's extensive writing career, Louden 
       here focuses on Kant's under-appreciated empirical work on
       human nature, with particular attention to the connections
       between this body of work and his much-discussed ethical 
       theory. Kant repeatedly claimed that the question, "What 
       is the human being" is philosophy's most fundamental 
       question, one that encompasses all others. Louden analyzes
       and evaluates Kant's own answer to his question, showing 
       how it differs from other accounts of human nature. This 
       collection of twelve essays is divided into three parts. 
       In Part One (Human Virtues), Louden explores the nature 
       and role of virtue in Kant's ethical theory, showing how 
       the conception of human nature behind Kant's virtue theory
       results in a virtue ethics that is decidedly different 
       from more familiar Aristotelian virtue ethics programs. In
       Part Two (Ethics and Anthropology), he uncovers the 
       dominant moral message in Kant's anthropological 
       investigations, drawing new connections between Kant's 
       work on human nature and his ethics. Finally, in Part 
       Three (Extensions of Anthropology), Louden explores 
       specific aspects of Kant's theory of human nature 
       developed outside of his anthropology lectures, in his 
       works on religion, geography, education, and aesthetics, 
       and shows how these writings substantially amplify his 
       account of human beings. Kant's Human Being offers a 
       detailed and multifaceted investigation of the question 
       that Kant held to be the most important of all, and will 
       be of interest not only to philosophers but also to all 
       who are concerned with the study of human nature.
