9780813343839: A Companion to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason

Immanuel Kant's groundbreaking Critique of Pure Reason inaugurated a new way of understanding the world that continues to impact philosophy to the present day. With clear explanations and numerous examples, A Companion to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason” takes students step by step through the book in a way that captures their interest without sacrificing depth or intellectual rigor. Although it is informed by recent Anglo-American scholarship, the Companion focuses on Kant's own arguments rather than secondary texts and scholarly debates that may otherwise distract from what Kant himself is attempting. The Companion first places the Critique in its historical and philosophical context before addressing the three main parts of the book in order: the Transcendental Aesthetic, the Transcendental Analytic, and the Transcendental Dialectic. The Companion also briefly explains how Kant continues his investigation into God, freedom, and immortality in the Critique of Practical Reason, and it concludes with an assessment of Kant's importance in the history of modern philosophy. Key features include a glossary of technical terms, with succinct definitions and cross-references, as well as an annotated bibliography of the most important English-language secondary sources on Kant's theoretical philosophy.

About the Author:

Matthew C. Altman teaches philosophy at Central Washington University.

Review:

"Altman's book is clearly written, and it reflects expertise in Kant studies while remaining quite accessible. Any instructor assigning it could be confident that it would be beneficial reading for beginning students of the first Critique."
-- Benjamin Vilhauer, William Paterson University

"Altman's work is that of a splendid scholar as well as superb teacher. From his introduction, through his coverage of the chapters of Kant's work, to his summary of Kant's legacy, Altman guides his readers through this notoriously difficult work with such expertise--and with such a wealth of ingenious explanations and illustrations--that they can really come to see what problems Kant was trying to solve, what his solutions actually amounted to, but also what some of the major problems are that these solutions, despite their brilliance, still raise for us. Truly a remarkable accomplishment!"
-- Werner S. Pluhar, Pennsylvania State University, Fayette--The Eberly Campus
