Editorial Reviews


"Schonfeld's grasp of the history of science is impressive, and his reconstructions of the young Kant's historical context are meticulous and instructive. By persuasively illustrating the inner logic of Kant's early development, Schonfeld's clear, well-organized, and copiously annotated book makes an important contribution to Kant scholarship."--The Review of Metaphysics

Format: Hardcover
"The Philosophy of the Young Kant: the Precritical Project," written by Martin Schönfeld (University of South Florida) studies the philosophical development of Kant during the so-called pre-critical years (1746-1766). Attempting to overturn a scholarly tradition of discounting Kant's writing before the publication of the first "Critique" (1781), Schönfeld convincingly argues for the importance of Kant's attempt to integrate the developments of Newtonian science and the traditional values of Western morality and religion during the years under discussion. Martin Schönfeld manages to weave this very diverse and difficult material together with great intellectual rigor.
This book is an outstanding contribution to a somewhat neglected area of Kant scholarship; it will also be of interest to anyone interested in the history of scientific, religious, and moral ideas during the Enlightenment. The author's prose is excellent, and he makes his work accessible to the non-specialized reader by relegating some of the technical and scholarly detail of the book to fifty pages of very interesting notes at the end of the book. "The Philosophy of the Young Kant" contains an outstanding multi-lingual bibliography.
Because of its clarity and critical acumen, "The Philosophy of the Young Kant" will be of interest to both undergraduate and graduate readers in many different disciplines. Reading Dr. Schonfeld's book as a preparation to the "The Critique of Pure Reason" will make access to the notoriously difficult problems and terminology of that book much easier.
Martin Schonfeld's book is a significant contribution to modern intellectual history and cannot be recommended strongly enough.
