The Cambridge Companion to Kant and Modern Philosophy (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy)

The Cambridge Companion to Kant and Modern Philosophy (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The philosophy of Immanuel Kant is the watershed of modern thought, which irrevocably changed the landscape of the field and prepared the way for all the significant philosophical movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This volume, which complements The Cambridge Companion to Kant, covers every aspect of Kant's philosophy, with a particular focus on his moral and political philosophy. It also provides detailed coverage of Kant's historical context and of the enormous impact and influence that his work has had on the subsequent history of philosophy. The bibliography also offers extensive and organized coverage of both classical and recent books on Kant. This volume thus provides the broadest and deepest introduction currently available on Kant and his place in modern philosophy, making accessible the philosophical enterprise of Kant to those coming to his work for the first time.

Book News Annotation:

When an update to the 1992 first edition was bruited, Guyer decided it would be more fun to produce a supplement instead. Some of the contributors--most Americans like him--are the same, but writing on different topics. More attention is devoted to Kant's moral and political philosophy, and to the historical context and the historical impact of his ideas.
