This collection gives an excellent overview of English-language work on the Critique of the Power of Judgement in recent decades.
— Abraham Anderson, St. John's College, Santa Fe
Allen W. Wood
This well-balanced collection of essays is the foremost, and for a time will certainly be the defnitive, anthology on Kant's Critique of the Power of Judgment."
Frederick Beiser
An indispensable collection of essays for every reader of Kant's third Critique.
Eighteenth-Century Book Reviews Online - Abraham Anderson
This collection gives an excellent overview of English-language work on the Critique of the Power of Judgement in recent decades.
Eric Watkins
This volume is an excellent collection of already classic articles from the past 25 years. It covers the entire spectrum of topics discussed in the Critique of the Power of Judgment with an even mix of helpful explanations of its fundamental issues and provocative suggestions about how best to understand Kant's original insights.
