For those who are gunshy about the first critique, this book is an extremely good introduction to Kant's Metaphysics. It does not give the depth of full critique but gives you the general thrust of the direction that he is going in his Philosophical activity and introduces the concepts that were essential to the critique. (the transcendental ego of apperception, the antinomies of reason, etc.) In this smaller production Kant is much less intimidating. His style is still fairly circuitous, and he is virtually incapable of sussinctly summarizing himself, but take it for what you will.
also, I'm not sure what the guy beneath me is talking about. I'm really not. But it should be noted that Kant's variety of idealism should be called critical idealism rather than subjective idealism. The latter is misleading and fails to make the distinction between Kant's philosophy and that of Berkley or Descartes.
The Reason has been proved to be so droolingly absurd by Kant in his boring literary form. He needs an upgrade via activation of the Poetical Faculties -- I am not here speaking of the former paragraph's identity of expression. His style is so sublimely shown to be in an opposed functioning with most other philosophical books.
An excellent method to become a Subjective Idealist is propounded here in this treatise.
