Overview

This searching orientation to Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason presents the central theme, the development of his Transcendental Idealism, as a response to perceived weaknesses in his predecessors’ accounts of experiential knowledge. Anthony Savile offers lucid new readings of the central arguments in both the Transcendental Aesthetic and the Transcendental Analytic, making clear the fundamental systematic components of Kant’s vision.

The book appraises the success and the failure of Kant’s overall critical project. It shows how, for all its merits and despite Kant's departure from previous ways of thinking, he was still unhappily in thrall to some of their key assumptions, and how this ultimately wrecked his attempts to institute a ‘Copernican Revolution.'

As far as possible, the author engages directly with Kant’s ideas and those of his predecessors, independently of the enormous secondary literature that surrounds the Critique.
