Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a magnificent, thrilling book. Bennington shows that the geopolitical vocabulary that pervades Kant’s critical system–frontiers, limits, borders boundaries, territories, battlefields–is not merely a analogy but rather the index of the essentially political nature of thought. His brilliant, gorgeous readings manage to negotiate the fragile boundary between Kant’s usually marginalized historical-political writings and the central problematic of the critical-transcendental project. The problems of philosophy cannot be cordoned off from the 'cosmopolitan' concerns of humanity. This is truly an achievement.---―Rebecca Comay, University of Toronto

Beyond meticulously describing the impasses around which Kant conducts what he sometimes calls his 'critical business,' Kant on the Frontier culminates in an analysis of the Critique of Teleological Judgment that is at once philologically exact and strikingly topical: here we encounter a thinker who, in seeking to erect impregnable borders, opens onto the 'abyss of judgment.'---―Peter Fenves, Northwestern University --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
