Format: Hardcover
A passable attempt to discuss Kant's fascination (and ultimately unrequited love) of the exact sciences. The author, however, fails to grasp certain elementary features of mathematics and physics (eg: Newton's laws of motion) that Kant engages and as such misunderstands a lot of Kant's misunderstandings. It also overlooks some of the most grevious errors on Kant's part, notably his postulation of a repulsive force, which should suggest a lack of understanding on Kant's part vis-a-vis Newtonian mechanics. I don't understand this incredible oversight.
