Editorial Reviews

Review

Centering on the notion of things simpler (as opposed to either things in themselves or objects of experience as such), Greenberg has developed a highly original reading of Kant's arguments regarding the a priori conditions of knowledge. As a challenge to the main lines of approach to those arguments today, it cannot be ignored. --Richard E. Aquila, University of Tennessee

Robert Greenberg offers an intricate, highly original reading of Kant's first Critique on what constitutes the possibility of a priori knowledge. One of the book's main features, ambitious in scope, is the author's extensive polemic against mainstream Anglophone approaches to Kant's position on a priori knowledge. --Irmgard Scherer, Review of Metaphysics

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Flounder on December 31, 2002
Format: Library Binding
This is a valuable book that should be read along with Strawson, Allison, Bennett, Guyer, and Aquila. I highly recommend it, especially for those with interests in Kant's views on apriori knowledge.
Greenberg offers a controversial reading in distinction to the mainline and ubiquitous Strawsonian view--that the possibility of experience is not Kant's central concern in the first Critique. He also argues that K's transcendental metaphysics should be evaluated independently of the conditions of the possibility of (apriori) knowledge. Greenberg discusses an interesting interpretation of K's Table of Judgments, as well as the logic of reference.
Part 1: External Realism and K's Theory of Representation
Part 2: K's Idealism
Part 3: On Transcendental Logic: B-Deduction, Judgment, Categories, Perception
Part 4: Closure on K's Epistemology
Greenberg's prose is clear and direct, which helps make the Master's arguments more clear.
I also recommend: Langton, Kantian Humility (Oxford UP); McDowell, Mind and World; Smith, Reading McDowell; Stroud, Understanding Human Knowledge (Oxford UP/Paper); and Strawson, Entity and Identity (Oxford UP/in print).
