Review

"A rare gift, a new perspective from which to view one of philosophy's seminal thinkers." —Bernard Freydberg, Koç University



"Nuzzo (CUNY) presents a novel reading of Kant's entire corpus centered on the theme of embodiment.... Highly recommended." —Choice, June 2009



Nuzzo (CUNY) presents a novel reading of Kant's entire corpus centered on the theme of embodiment. The novelty here is that Kant traditionally is thought to have had nothing to say on this topic. Nuzzo reads Kant as focused on the question of embodiment negatively (as a way of resolving certain difficulties of traditional metaphysical dualism) as well as positively, through the concept of sensibility that recurs throughout his work. Although she focuses on Kant's critical writings, her argument relies on elaboration of key precritical writings as well. Her argument is simply that Kant presents a theory of transcendental sensibility throughout his work and that the body is thus a key preoccupation from beginning to end. Nuzzo thus organizes her work around Kant's theoretical writings and his transcendental aesthetic in the first part of the book before turning to Kant's moral philosophy in the second. In this section, she works out the relationship between moral personhood and moral feelings before turning to Kant's Critique of Judgment and the role of embodiment in reflective judgment. In sum, a clear, engaging, and novel contribution to Kant studies. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers. --ChoiceC. R. McCall, Elmira College, June 2009
