Kant's views on logic and logical theory play an important part in his critical writings, especially the Critique of Pure Reason. However, since he published only one short essay on the subject, we must turn to texts derived from his logic lectures to understand his views. This volume includes three previously untranslated transcripts of Kant's logic lectures: the Blomberg Logic (1770s), the Vienna Logic supplemented by the recently discovered Hechsel Logic (1780s), and the Dohna-Wundlacken Logic (1790s). Also included is a new translation of the Jasche Logic, compiled at Kant's request from his lectures and published in 1800, and concordances relating Kant's lectures to Georg Friedrich Meier's Excerpts from the Doctrine of Reason, the book on which Kant lectured throughout his life and in which he left extensive notes.

Review quote

'By making available these lectures in English in one volume, with all its scholarly apparatus, the translator and the series editors have provided an important service, making Kant accessible to a wider audience for more serious study. Cambridge University Press has produced a very handsome volume.' Review of Metaphysics 'The translation is remarkably readable ... and is altogether a considerable achievement.' British Journal of the History of Philosophy '... this volume represents the most scholarly and up-to-date translation of Kant's logical views available today. Most importantly, it gives a consistent translation of transcripts that present Kant's views on logic at different stages of his career ... sure to become indispensable ... for the serious Kant scholar.' Canadian Philosophical Reviews
