"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
