This is a very small version of the book, but it is unabridged. It comes at a very fair price and keeps things concise by by avoiding the copious footnotes and commentaries provided in more expensive versions. It is therefore a perfect addition to the collection of both the casual reader, and those like myself- undergraduate students using it for reference rather than involved study.

I too was surprised to see it lacked a contents and index page (this is not an issue with the four other 'Dover Books on Western Philosophy' I have purchased), and I can understand this is not an ideal version for a detailed study of the work, but as for the problem of the contents:

Part I
Analytic of Pure Practical Reason
Chapter 1 - p. 17
Chapter 2 - p. 60
Chapter 3 - p. 76

Part II
Dialectic of Pure Practical Reason
Chapter 1 - p. 114
Chapter 2 - p. 118

Part III
Methodology of Pure Practical Reason - p. 159

Problem solved.

The book itself is also pretty good, as no doubt you are aware. Much more readable than Critique of Pure Reason, especially if you are more interested in ethics than epistemology. Though if that is the case you should read the groundwork first, for a ... well a groundwork.

On receiving this Dover Publications edition, translated by Thomas Kingsmill Abbott, I was dismayed to find that it does not contain a table of contents or an index. This omission alone was enough to move me to write this review; I bought this edition because it was cheap, but it was of little use to me.

I subsequently bought a translation by Pluhar, published by Hackett, which has a table of contents and a comprehensive index; it has been much more useful to me in my studies.

Kants second great Critique. A low priced version and not as attractively produced as others. The transation is by Thomas Abbott and is not the version most commonly used now. (I am no expert on this!) Content of course masterly and another product of Kant's genius.

This is a commendable translation of Kant's most 'popular' Critique, though I think White Beck's has the edge in expression (I'm unqualified to judge on accuracy - read Professor Paton's Categorical Imperative).

It appears Kant found this 'outworking' of the principles he evolved in the first Critique an enjoyment of the spoils of all his hard work. He even felt that the first two Critiques beautifully substantiated each other: what was impossible for speculative reason was amazingly available to practical reason: there are things we cannot know but must be presupposed to give ultimate value to the things we do. Practical Reason completes Pure Reason.
