The book has its origins in a workshop held at the Centre for Ethics at the University of Toronto and concerns the so-called “Guise of the Good” thesis positing that “desire (or perhaps intention, or intentional action) always aims at the good” (3).

The nine papers in this book are focused on the so-called 'guise-of-the-good' thesis, the view, as the editor puts it, "that desire (or perhaps intention, or intentional action) always aims at the good" (p. 3), that is, at something the agent takes to be or conceives of as being :// - Buy Appearances of the Good: An Essay on the Nature of Practical Reason book online at best prices in India on Read Appearances of the Good: An Essay on the Nature of Practical Reason book reviews & author details and more at Free delivery on qualified :// “Good,” in Kant’s view, is “the unconditional totality of the subject of pure practical reason.” (Kant,p) And put it apart from the experience of all things based on the natural desire restriction, then the good is divided into two kinds: One kind is the highest goodness, another is a full Aquinas maintains that the first principle of practical reason is a.
