This entirely new translation of Critique of Pure Reason is the most accurate and informative English translation ever produced of this epochal philosophical text. Though its simple and direct style will make it suitable for all new readers of Kant, the translation displays an unprecedented philosophical and textual sophistication that will enlighten Kant scholars as well. This translation recreates as far as possible a text with the same interpretative nuances and richness as the original. The extensive editorial apparatus includes informative annotation, detailed glossaries, an index, and a large-scale general introduction in which two of the world's preeminent Kant scholars provide both a succinct summary of the structure and argument of the Critique and a detailed account of its long and complex genesis.

Review quote

"Paul Guyer's and Allen Wood's new translation of Kant's Critique is a superb volume that forms the heart of Cambridge's excellent series of translations of Kant's works. Because of the quality of the translation, but also because of the various supplementary materials which it will very likely replace Norman Kemp Smith's translation as the standard edition for scholars. It is difficult to imagine that anyone would be able to improve on this volume in the foreseeable future." Eric Watkins, International Philosophical Quarterly

About Immanuel Kant

Immanuel Kant, 1724 - 1804, ist hauptsächlich durch seine erkenntnistheoretischen philosophischen Werke wie z.B. "Kritik der reinen Vernunft" (1781) bekannt geworden und gilt als Begründer der klassischen deutschen Philosophie. Die naturwissenschaftlichen Arbeiten Kants entstanden vorwiegend in seiner frühen Schaffensperiode. Seine bedeutendste Leistung auf dem Gebiet der Naturwissenschaften ist die "Kosmogonie", die 1755 zum ersten Mal erschien.
