Snapshot of some Kantian Ethics resources

Some books:
I would not waste your time with S.G.M. Weerasighe's "A Comparative Study of Early Buddhism and Kantian Philosophy." Even though it sounds fantastic, it's not. I have it. I might pull an idea or two for my thesis (which is practically based on the exact same topic), but probably not.

I WOULD have a look at Philip Olson's "The Discipline of Freedom: A Kantian View of the Role of Moral Precepts in Zen Practice." It is a very good, scholarly (even though the author is a lawyer and zen priest) approach to the topic - though written lucidly so that a lay reader will have no trouble.
