Immanuel Kant came up with an idea called "Transcendental unity of
Appreciation" probably from a book called "Foundations of the
metaphysics of morals." I need reading commentary on the idea, a
summary, others thoughts, lecture notes/reviews on the book but only
ones with dierect pertinence to the unity of appreciation idea.

Perhaps what you are looking for is information on Kant's concept of
the "Transcendental Unity of Apperception".

Please have a look at these links:



which contain over 600 hits for this concept, and let me know if it's
on the right track.  If it is, what additional information do you need
as an answer?

You are correct.  It should have been "trancendental unity of
apperception" which you have found.  People who write the kind of
stuff that Kant does are labeled either empiricist or rationalist. 
Which one is Kant?

I consider Kant more of a rationalist myself, since he was devoted to
concepts that lay well byeond our empirical senses, but he is often
credited with synthesizing -- that is, bridging the gap -- between
empiricism and rationalism.  For instance, take a look at this link

My earlier question still stands:  What additional information do you
need as an answer to your question?
