This chapter identifies three problems as preliminary to the very existence of ethics: the reality of human freedom, the significance of value judgments, and the authority of moral imperatives. Kant's philosophy is regarded as offering satisfactory solutions for these problems; hence, its contribution is identified as primarily located in metaethics, rather than normative ethics.
