    This volume collects for the first time in a single volume all of Kants writings on religion and rational theology. These works were written during a period of conflict between Kant and the Prussian authorities over his religious teachings. His final statement of religion was made after the death of King Frederick William II in 1797. The historical context and progression of this conflict are charted in the general introduction to the volume and in the translators introductions to particular texts. All the translations are new with the exception of The Conflict of the Faculties, where the translation has been revised and re edited to conform to the guidelines of the Cambridge Edition. As is standard with all the volumes in this edition, there are copious linguistic and explanatory notes, and a glossary of key terms. Religion and Rational Theology (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Immanuel Kant)

    Every serious scholar in Kant or Theology must owe this superb volume. It contains many unknown and important works in order to achieve a complete and accurate vision of Kant's moral theory and his philosophy of religion, as well as his whole system of philosophy, developed throughout the three Critiques. Kant himself delimited his philosophical project in the formulations of these three questions: What can I know What I ought to do? and What am I to expect? (CPR A 804/ B 832). Kant told that the last question, the theological one, was to be answer in The religion within the limits of mere reason of 1793 (AK 11: 414), a monumental work that makes clear several issues being somehow murky for the readers of the Groundwork and the Critique of the Pure reason, such as the value of the faith, the intelligible grounds of free will and the relation between morals and traditional religion. Kazakhstan In addition to the content of what Kant wrote, the introduction in this book makes clear that the End of All Things as explained by Kant was a bitter satire. We hardly want to end everything however much the flashy bang gravy train may keep producing thermonuclear weapons and nuclear submarines. Many people have been thinking in ways that are far too complicated to be broken up into simple sentences for the benefit of readers who think of a series of simple assertions as a style to keep institutions functioning like a combination of God and God's own skew leaders.
