Description

Karl Ameriks here collects his most important essays to provide a detailed and up-to-date analysis of Kant's main arguments in all three major areas of his work: theoretical philosophy ("Critique of Pure Reason"), practical philosophy ("Critique of Practical Reason"), and aesthetics ("Critique of Judgment"). Guiding the volume is Ameriks's belief that one cannot properly understand any one of these Critiques except in the context of the other two. The essays can be read individually, but read together they offer a comprehensive guide to the main themes of the most influential of all modern philosophical systems.

Review quote

"Karl Ameriks collects many of his most important essays on Kant's theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, and aesthetics-demonstrating at once a breadth of philosophical concern that is rare for contemporary Kant scholars, a detailed familiarity with a wide range of both English- and German-language literature, and a willingness to defend interpretations of Kant's text that challenge current assumptions It is strongly recommended." -- Aran Canes and Staff "Karl Ameriks collects many of his most important essays on Kant's theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, and aesthetics-demonstrating at once a breadth of philosophical concern that is rare for contemporary Kant scholars, a detailed familiarity with a wide range of both English- and German-language literature, and a willingness to defend interpretations of Kant's text that challenge current assumptions It is strongly recommended." -- Aran Canes and Staff "Karl Ameriks collects many of his most important essays on Kant's theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, and aesthetics-demonstrating at once a breadth of philosophical concern that is rare for contemporary Kant scholars, a detailed familiarity with a wide range of both English- and
