Kant is the central figure of modern philosophy. He sought to rebuild philosophy from the ground up, and he succeeded in permanently changing its problems and methods. This new translation of the Prolegomena, which is the best introduction to his philosophy, presents his thought clearly by paying careful attention to his original language. Also included are selections from the Critique of Pure Reason, which fill out and explicate some of Kant's central arguments, and in which Kant himself explains his special terminology. The volume is completed by a historical and philosophical introduction, explanatory notes, a chronology and a guide to further reading.

Review quote

'Hatfield's translation is new ... [He] handles very carefully central concepts of the Kantian text that are difficult to translate ... It can be highly recommended especially for university courses.' Konstantin Pollok, University of Marburg, Kant-Studien
