Excerpt from The Categorical Imperative: A Study in Kant's Moral Philosophy

Kan T contrived to say something new about morality. This remark able achievement has compelled every subsequent writer on moral philo sophy to examine his views even if only in order to refute his errors. The curious thing is that Kant himself makes no claim to propound a philo sophical revolution in moral thinking as he did in speculative thinking. He knew, of course, that he was trying to do something which no one had succeeded in doing before - namely; to' set forth the first principles of morality apart from all considerations of self-interest and even apart from their application to particular human problems. Yet he maintained that he was only putting forward a new formula for the principle by which good men had always judged moral excellence - even if they had been unable to make this principle clear to themselves or to separate it off sharply from other principles concerned with the happiness of the individual and the benefits arising from the moral life.
