        About this book

        This remarkably comprehensive Handbook provides a multifaceted yet carefully crafted investigation into the work of Immanuel Kant, one of the greatest philosophers the world has ever seen. With original contributions from leading international scholars in the field, this authoritative volume first sets Kant’s work in its biographical and historical context. It then proceeds to explain and evaluate his revolutionary work in metaphysics and epistemology, logic, ethics, aesthetics, philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, political philosophy, philosophy of history, philosophy of education, and anthropology.

         

        Key Features:

         

        • Draws attention to the foundations of Kant’s varied philosophical insights — transcendental idealism, logic, and the bridge between theoretical and practical reason

        • Considers hitherto neglected topics such as sexuality and the philosophy of education

        • Explores the immense impact of his ground-breaking work on subsequent intellectual movements

         

        Serving as a touchstone for meaningful discussion about Kant’s philosophical and historical importance, this definitive Handbook is essential reading for Kant scholars who want to keep abreast of the field and for advanced students wishing to explore the frontiers of the subject.

        Reviews

        “This volume is a tour de force. It is of interest not only for Kant specialists, but for anyone interested in philosophy. It offers accessible, in-depth discussions, not only of the more abstract, conceptual aspects of Kant’s work; but also of Kant’s rich exploration of the human condition. Contributions are from seasoned Kant scholars as well as newer voices in Kant scholarship, drawn from all over the world. The volume will remain a landmark for decades to come.” (Béatrice Longuenesse, Silver Professor of Philosophy, New York University, and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, USA)

        “Anyone – undergraduate or graduate, specialist or non-specialist – wanting to know the current scholarship on Kant needs this book. These essays reveal the context, aims, methods, arguments, and results of Kant’s philosophizing in a way that highlights the continuing interpretive controversies. With top scholars writing on nearly every topic in Kant, this collection is ideal.” (Frederick Rauscher, Professor of Philosophy, Michigan State University, USA)
