Introduction by Allen W. Wood

With translations by F. Max Müller and Thomas K. Abbott

The writings of Immanuel Kant became the cornerstone of all subsequent philosophical inquiry. They articulate the relationship between the human mind and all that it encounters and remain the most important influence on our concept of knowledge. As renowned Kant scholar Allen W. Wood writes in his Introduction, Kant “virtually laid the foundation for the way people in the last two centuries have confronted such widely differing subjects as the experience of beauty and the meaning of human history.” Edited and compiled by Dr. Wood, Basic Writings of Kant stands as a comprehensive summary of Kant’s contributions to modern thought, and gathers together the most respected translations of Kant’s key moral and political writings.

Synopsis:

With an Introduction by renowned Kant scholar Allen W. Wood, this is the only available one-volume edition of the essential works of the Enlightenment's greatest philosopher and one of the most influential thinkers of modern times. Containing carefully selected excerpts from his most frequently taught essays and book-length publications, including Critique of Pure Reason, Critique of Judgment, and Eternal Peace, the Basic Writings of Kant is an indispensable collection. This revised edition was edited by Carl J. Friedrich.

Synopsis:

Enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant ranks with Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, and Nietzche as among the most influential figures in the history of thought; his work remains a cornerstone of serious philosophical inquiry. This volume gathers his key moral and political writings in a volume incisively crafted by esteemed philsopher Karl Friedrich. Perfect for the lay reader or student, it ranks with the best available one-volume introductions to Kant's thought.
