Review Text

'This is a quite outstanding introduction to the Critique ... It will help students not only to study the Critique, but also to see why it is so worth studying ... deserves to find itself, and pretty certainly will find itself, at the very top of the reading list for any course on the Critique.' - The Philosophical Quarterly

'In his clear and well-organized book, Gardner succeeds in providing a charitable and compelling reading of the most important sections of Kant's text, while also offering fresh and lucid interpretations of Kant's most provocative arguments. The result is an invaluable companion to the Critique that helpfully illuminates a notoriously opaque work ... Gardner's book is an invaluable resource for any student of Kant and, thus, for any student or teacher of philosophy.' - Mind

The major virtues of Gardner's book are clarity, accuracy, and its focus on the key concepts and arguments of Kant's notoriously complex work. Both serious students and Kant scholars will benefit greatly from Gardner's contribution. - Philosophical Books
