Inspirations from Kant

£12.99

Product description

These essays on Kant's theoretical philosophy, besides deriving inspiration from him, bring insights from contemporary analytical philosophy to bear in interpreting some of his most deep and difficult themes. The topics covered include representation and reality, appearances and things in themselves, the given and synthesis, transcendental idealism, the limits of scientific explanation, knowledge, belief and faith, freedom of judgement, different levels of operation within the mind, and determinism and free will. Though written separately (and in some cases already published), the essays bear close relations with each other, and these inter-relations have been emphasised and signposted in preparing revised versions for this book. This collection of essays features a variety of concrete examples (and occasional humour) to illustrate and illuminate the very abstract themes of Kant's philosophy. It is designed to be readable with enjoyment and profit by those who do not count themselves as Kant scholars.

Hardback book and dust jacket in very good condition with almost no signs of wear.
