About the Authors
  • Henry Allison is one of the foremost interpreters of the philosophy of Kant. This new volume collects all his recent essays on Kant's theoretical and practical philosophy. Special features of the collection are: a detailed defense of the author's interpretation of transcendental idealism; a consideration of the Transcendental Deduction and some other recent interpretations thereof; further elaborations of the tensions between various aspects of Kant's conception of freedom and of the complex role of this conception within Kant's moral philosophy.

    • Allison is one of the world's leading interpreters of Kant. (His earlier volume for Cambridge sold well for a book of this level)
    • Broad range of topics discussed
    • Books on Kant always sell well

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Allison's book is a counter-example to the myth that all Kant commentators are grouchy and obscure. He is clear, generous to his critics, and writes well. Of course, he is known for all of this plus strong sensible interpretations...Allison's fairness and clarity convince this reader in almost every case." - International Studies in Philosophy, Sidney Axinn
