This chapter introduces the basic ideas of the book. It connects the main idea of part I — that good will is the end in itself — to the further examination of the humanity formulation in part II. The scholarly and practical points of part II are linked to part I because they rely on taking good will to be the end in itself, and because both parts of the book emphasize Kant’s concept of value, which says that talk about value is just a way to capture the conceptually prior idea of rational choice.

Keywords:   end in itself, good will, humanity formulation, rational choice, value
