Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fenves is one of the most innovative and brilliant thinkers now writing in the field of German philosophy and literature... [He] makes a compelling case for the importance and undeserved neglect of the 'late' Kant; and suggests new ways in which Kant's work is relevant to the present. Fenves has the rare gift of combining scrupulous historical scholarship, a finely tuned literary ear, and an extraordinary analytic mind."
-Susan Shell, Boston College

About the Author

Peter Fenves is Professor of German and Comparative Literary Studies and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy and Political Science at Northwestern University. Among his books is" "Chatter": Language and History in Kierkegaard "(Stanford, 1993).

Format: Hardcover
These readings of Kant's thinking on history and politics are insightful, compelling, and relevant to later political theory as well as to current questions of post-Cold-War, post-superpower politics and globalization. (I doubt very much that the other reviewer read the book or has read the work of Kant.)

Format: Paperback
What on earth is this? Is this book a joke? Or was Kant joking? And who is Peter Fenves, anyway?

The dense, impenetrable prose of his book makes it down right impossible to read, and it's never clear what Fenves' central thesis might be. Perhaps he wants to become the court jester of pure cant.

The joke is on the reader, I'm afraid.
