Product description

In his monumental "Critique of Pure Reason, " German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724 1804) argues that human knowledge is limited by the capacity for perception. He attempts a logical designation of two varieties of knowledge: "a posteriori, " the knowledge acquired through experience; and "a priori, " knowledge not derived through experience. Kant maintains that the most practical forms of human knowledge employ the "a priori" judgments that are possible only when the mind determines the conditions of its own experience. This accurate translation by J. M. Meiklejohn offers a simple and direct rendering of Kant's work that is suitable for readers at all levels."

This edition does not include the standard A/B numbering system whereby scholars refer to passages in the text which thus makes this edition problematic if it's to be used for academic purposes. While it might be the cheapest option, if you're a student looking to study Kant I recommend seeking an edition which includes the A/B numbering system for ease of reference.
