Description

"On Critique of Pure Reason : The text rendered by Pluhar is the work of an expert translator. . . the virtues of his text are manifold; his translation exhibits an incontrovertible mastery of both English and German. Equally important is the fact that Pluhar has given the original a very close read during the act of translating. . . . Pluhar consistently resists the tendency to translate woodenly word-for-word. . . . In point of fact, accuracy of translation stands in no direct relation to literalness; it is much more a product of meticulous textual reading and skilful writing, and in this respect Pluhar has no modern equals in English Kant translation." --James Jakob Fehr, Kant-Studien

Those who have found the prospect of teaching the third Critique daunting will admire its clarity. . . . No one will be disappointed. --Timothy Sean Quinn, The Review of Metaphysics
