Manifest Reality: Kant’s Idealism and his Realism by Lucy Allais
Requirements: PDF Reader, 2.2MB
Overview: At the heart of Immanuel Kant’s critical philosophy is an epistemological and metaphysical position he calls transcendental idealism; the aim of this book is to understand this position. Despite the centrality of transcendental idealism in Kant’s thinking, in over two hundred years since the publication of the first Critique there is still no agreement on how to interpret the position, or even on whether, and in what sense, it is a metaphysical position.
Lucy Allais argue that Kant’s distinction between things in themselves and things as they appear to us has both epistemological and metaphysical components.
