This lucid survey takes readers on a thought-provoking tour through the life and work of Immanuel Kant. The book provides expositions of Kant's key works, especially his Critique of Pure Reason, and represents the broad range of his philosophical thought, including his contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, the philosophy of science, the philosophy of history, moral philosophy, aesthetics, politics and philosophy of religion. The first volume in the Blackwell Great Minds series, Allen W. Wood's Kant offers students, scholars and interested readers new insights into one of history's most important and influential philosophers.
