Kant: A Biography

Kant: A Biography Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first full-length biography in more than fifty years of Immanuel Kant, one of the giants among the pantheon of Western philosophers, and one of the most powerful and influential in contemporary philosophy. Taking account of the most recent scholarship, Manfred Kuehn allows the reader to follow the same journey that Kant himself took in emerging as a central figure in modern philosophy. Manfred Kuehn was formerly Professor of Philosophy at Purdue University. A specialist on German philosophy of the period, he is the author of numerous articles and papers on Immanuel Kant.

Book News Annotation:

Suggesting that the philosophy of Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) cannot be properly appreciated without understanding the impact of the momentous events of the 18th century on his life and thought, Kuehn (philosophy, Philipps- Universit<:a>t Marburg, Germany) presents an intellectual biography of the professor. He argues that the birth of modernity, the American and French Revolutions, and the local intellectual developments in his hometown of K<:o>nigsberg are among the roots of Kant's intellectual development. Exploring global, regional, and local influences, Kuehn describes Kant's intellectual development through his professional writings, but also through his letters and his interactions with colleagues.
