Critique of pure reason

£19.99

Product description

Paperback, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2003. Cover corners slightly bent. Clean and tightly bound.

Immanuel Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason" is both one of the most rewarding of all philosophical works and one of the most difficult. Norman Kemp Smith's translation is valuable, not simply because he rendered Kant's language into readable English, but also because his own extensive understanding of the "Critique" made him acutely aware of the pitfalls of translation.;In this volume, the text followed is that of the second edition of 1787, and a translation is also given of all first edition passages which in the second edition have been either altered or omitted. For this reissue of Norman Kemp Smith's classic 1929 edition, Howard Caygill has contributed a new Preface, setting this translation into the context both of Kemp Smith's own life and work, and of his influence on Kant scholarship.

Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
