Description

This volume provides an extensive translation of the notes and fragments that survived Kant's death in 1804. These include marginalia, lecture notes, and sketches and drafts for his published works. They are important as an indispensable resource for understanding Kant's intellectual development and published works, casting fresh light on Kant's conception of his own philosophical methods and his relations to his predecessors, as well as on central doctrines of his work such as the theory of space, time and categories, the refutations of scepticism and metaphysical dogmatism, the theory of the value of freedom and the possibility of free will, the conception of God, the theory of beauty, and much more.

Review quote

Review of the hardback: ' ... this volume will certainly prove useful for the English reader, and it may well serve as a gateway for introducing students in the English world to the richness and complexity of the thoughts that led to Kant's published work.' International Journal of Philosophical Studies "The size of the undertaking and the potential value of the resulting product should convince most scholars and students that Paul Guyer and his colleagues have done an admirable job in making this volume available to English speakers working at various levels on all aspects of Kant's philosophy." - Mark Fisher, Pennsylvania State University
