Description

Waxman here presents an ambitious and comprehensive attempt to link the philosophers known as the British Empiricists-Locke, Berkeley, and Hume-to the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. Much has been written about all these thinkers but Waxman argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, Kant is actually the culmination of the British empiricist program and that he shares their methodological assumptions and basic convictions about human thought and knowledge.show more
