9781330690444: The Life of Immanuel Kant (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Life of Immanuel Kant

Kant is known chiefly as the author of the Kritik of Pure Reason. In giving an account of his life, however, a much more comprehensive view of him must be taken; he must be considered in the various relations he sustained. As his works culminated in ethics and theology, and were intended to establish these on a firm basis, his moral and religious views deserve more attention than they generally receive from English writers on his philosophy, especially since they are so intimately connected with his life. A critical discussion of his abstruse philosophy would be out of place in a biography. The English reader has access to excellent works on the Kantian system, and others, as well as translations of Kant's books, are in process of preparation. This biography aims to con centrate all the light on the man himself and his life. The great interest now taken in Kant's philosophy in England and America justifies the hope that the life of the Father of German metaphysics will be welcomed by English readers. If his works throw light on his life, it will also be found that his life aids materially in understanding his works.

Review:

...stands head and shoulders above anything that had gone before, and is well worth reading even now. English readers who want to learn about Kant's life, and find Cassirer's work...too austere, could do no better. No one interested in Kant will regardthis book with anything but affection.>>> (Philosophy And Phenomenological Research)
