Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kuehn has written a solid biography.... The book reads well." The Complete Review

"This is an excellent book..." Review of Metaphysics

"In this first full-length biography in English, Manfred Kuehn's prodigious research dispels the idea of Kant as a colorless, and, by interveaving his life and thought, gives us a Kant we have never known before." Washington Post Book World

"This book bills itself as 'the first full-length biography of Kant in over fifty years,' but it is more than that... Kuehn has produced a work of the highest quality." Library Journal

"This book is ideally suited for a reader who already has some acquaintance with Kant's major ideas and wants a biographical, social and intellectual context in which to understand them more deeply. It is an impressive work with both historical and philosophical dimensions." Catholic Library World

"...an impressive work with both historical and philosophical dimensions." Catholic Library World

"This book bills itself as "the first full-length biography of Kant in over fifty years," but it is more than that... the present book excels...Kuehn has produced a work of the highest quality...For all academic collections and larger public libraries." Library Journal

"[An] excellent new biography. Manfred Kuehn's new book, with its scrupulous combination of archival accuracy and philosophical senstivity, therefore sets an entirely new standard, opening up fresh approaches not only to Kant's life but also to the meaning of his work. Kuehn's fine and rather touching biography reveals a philosophical life lived with pathos, courage, and good humor, as well as a terrible and merciless intelligence." Lingua Franca

"The best biography in English, and indeed in any language." J.B. Schneewind, author of The Invention of Autonomy

"The best biography of Kant now available." Philosophy in Review

Book Description

This is the first full-length biography of Immanuel Kant in more than fifty years.
