Editorial Reviews


"...I certainly intend to assign this book in future courses on the Critique of Pure Reason, and I am confident that all other teachers of Kant will find their students deeply grateful if they do so as well." --Paul Guyer, University of Pennsylvania: Philosophy in Review

Book Description

This introductory 2006 textbook explains the role of the first Critique in Kant's philosophy and offers a line-by-line reading of the major arguments in the text. It is accessible to readers with little background in the history of philosophy and will also be a valuable resource for more advanced students.

Having struggled off and on to understand the philosophy of Kant for at least thirty years, I have much appreciated this very helpful book. However, I think it is of value only if you use it as an auxiliary aid in reading the "Critique of Pure Reason." It is by no means a substitute for reading the original. To mention just a few merits of the book: Most importantly, I think, it points up those spots where Kant is confusing or contradicts himself. For example, he introduces a bewildering array of terms (some of which he made up, while others are ordinary words to which he attaches special meanings) but then he often ignores his own definitions and uses terms interchangeably or one term when he should be using another. This book will alert the reader to many of these danger spots, thus eliminating some frustrating roadblocks. The book also frankly faces the fact that some of Kant is incurably obscure, but offers good counsel on what he probably meant. The book is probably written for students, which is by no means my category, but is good for anyone interested in Kant. I also recommend "A Kant Dictionary" (H. Caygill) and "The Cambridge Companion to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason," but I don't think they are as helpful as this one. Thanks to this book I have finally succeeded in reading a good portion of Kant and (I think) even understood a large part of it. Amazing!
