3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tom on August 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
I've spent a considerable amount of time wrestling with the big canonical books of philosophy, including Kant's three major critiques (of pure reason [theory itself], practical reason, and judgment). And although I've come to find such intensive reading infinitely rewarding and personally edifying, it's frustrating that it presents a high barrier to access for people who are interested but don't have or care to spend as much time bookishly parsing the dense works of philosophers. When I came across this book recently by chance it struck me how much more accessible (even witty, and human) Kant seems when writing on the more concrete matters of engaged politics and history, as opposed to the dry, abstract, straining experience of the three critiques. I might be biased for having some experience with the latter, but I think a reading of these works on the political and historical can give the astute reader the general sense of Kant's philosophy as a whole, as worked out in the critiques, and a sense of why it was and still is so important, compelling, and relevant today.
