This book provides a comprehensive analysis of Kant s treatment of happiness in ethics. It considers the definition of happiness and the possible roles happiness may serve in ethics. It argues against critics who maintain that Kant s deontological ethic rejects happiness and against critics who assert that Kant s ethic is, in fact, consequential and concerned above all with ends such as happiness. By pointing to a system that organizes Kant s various claims about happiness, the book supports the view that happiness has positive roles to play in Kant s ethic."
