Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this excellent introduction to all three of Kant's Critques',Andrew Ward's aim is to put idealism back in its rightful place inour understanding of Kant. His writing is forceful, engaging andadmirably clear, and his exegesis is, in my view, fundamentallycorrect."
