About the Authors
  • The fundamental task of philosophy since the seventeenth century has been to determine whether the essential principles of both knowledge and action can be discovered by human beings unaided by an external agency. No one philosopher contributed more to this enterprise than Kant, whose Critique of Pure Reason (1781) shook the very foundations of the intellectual world. Kant argued that the basic principles of the natural sciences are imposed on reality by human sensibility and understanding, and thus that human beings are also free to impose their own free and rational agency on the world. This volume is the only systematic and comprehensive account of the full range of Kant's writings available, and the first major overview of his work to be published in more than a dozen years. An internationally recognized team of Kant scholars explore Kant's conceptual revolution in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, moral and political philosophy, aesthetics, and the philosophy of religion. The volume also traces the historical origins and consequences of Kant's work.

    • Clear and accurate translations of the best modern German editions of Kant's work
    • The Cambridge edition will include all of Kant's published writings and a generous selection of his unpublished writings

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This collection of essays attests to the high degree of maturity, richness, and depth recently achieved by English-langage Kantian scholarship. This book will certainly increase the already extraordinary interest that the revival of Kantian studies has produced in the Anglo-American philosophical world--an interest that has helped to erase some of the barriers between the analytical and other approaches to philosophy. The collection not only substantially advances the critical discussion of Kant's philosophy, it also can be used as an invaluable pedagogical tool at the graduate seminar level...giv[ing] an almost complete picture of Kant's critical philosophy." Ethics
