A companion to Kant's Critique of pure reason.


A companion to Kant's Critique of pure reason.

Altman, Matthew C.

Westview Press


232 pages




His Critique of Pure Reason is especially challenging, even to Kant specialists, and Altman (philosophy, Central Washington U.) is acutely aware that merely taking readers step by step through the arguments is not enough. Using examples and clear, concise language Altman explains passages within context, including those built by Kant himself, focusing on Kant's point of view rather than on interpreters and critics. Altman is particularly skilled at sorting out Kant's thought on the relative places of God and human freedom, and he provides a very good glossary, cross-references and annotated bibliography.
