Item Description...
Overview
The SCM Briefly series is a series of summarized texts that are commonly used on theology and philosophy A level and Level One undergraduate courses in the UK. As students are less likely today to come to these subjects with language experience, the Briefly series, summarising the meaning of the original texts, is a painless and quick way to get to grips with what the philosophers were writing about. The language throughout is modern and approachable, but the books manage to avoid "dumbing down" by including line by line analysis and short quotes to give students a feel for the original. In addition each book begins with an introduction, which provides a context for the writer and his writings, the chapters contain summaries to ensure the student has a context for that particular piece of writing, and each book also contains a glossary of terms. Kant's Religion Within The Bounds Of Reason Alone was written late in his life, following his most famous works including Critique of Pure Reason and Groundwork of Metaphysics of Morals. In it he considers the consequences of transcendental criticism for theology. Kant identifies a moral core to the Christian faith and asserts that because of that core and because the faith contains a principle for dispensing with the morally extraneous statutes and history associated with it, this faith can count as a moral, world religion. Seen by most philosophers and theologians as one of the most significant texts by this world famous philosopher, understanding is crucial for completion of any basic theology or philosophical qualification.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Why Kant we just accept others?  Jan 7, 2009
Kant is well known as a skeptic of human nature and his belief in the impurity of human nature that is continuously torn between good and evil or between moral tendencies and evil ones. To be able to actively develop our moral proclivities and combat our evil ones, we need a model of exceptional moral behavior. For Kant, The most compelling historical modal of moral behavior is Jesus of Nazareth, because he had resisted all temptation. Kant says that it is not necessary to believe that Jesus was the son of God, but it is important to believe in the possibility that Jesus actually attained moral perfection. If one human could be perfect, all humans can be perfect.

In "Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason" Kant explores the legitimacy of religious experience. He argues that organized religion is threatening the moral development of humanity by getting in the way of genuine religious experience.
Even though Kant's approach might not be understood by strictly religious people or people who believe that merely accepting Jesus will grant us salvation, his approach deserves being explored.

Kant's discussion of the tension between morals and religion is very intriguing. Because Kant believed in one universal moral law that humans can formulate by relying on their own instincts instead of the laws and rituals of organized religions.
Kant's objection to organized religions is based on his rejection of the connection between religious experience and the performance of certain rituals or the acceptance of certain beliefs. Most importantly, Kant's rejection of religious traditions that say God's grace will save you, not your own good behavior, is based on Kant's belief that actions have true moral value only if they are performed independently from God's assistance. Simply, we have no evidence that public religious practices have any effect on our moral standing in God's eyes.

In this way, Kant's analysis leads to the position that any rational person can come to understand and adopt a "pure moral faith" and constantly evaluate his/her actions, which is far more important than ritual and public professions of faith that simply don't transform the morally corrupt into the morally upright.

If such a moral behavior becomes common, the concept of an" invisible church" that accepts anybody with high morals, will increase the possibility of having a virtuous society. Finally a society, whose members freely accept moral laws, instead of having them forced upon them through rituals, and the need to belong to a certain religious group, will be a stronger and more tolerant society.
