Overview

Immanuel Kant is arguably the most important and influential thinker in the whole history of philosophy. Covering all the key concepts of his work, Starting with Kant provides an accessible introduction to the ideas of this hugely significant thinker.

Thematically structured, the book leads the reader through a thorough overview of the development of Kant’s mature thought, resulting in a wide-ranging understanding of his philosophical concerns. Offering coverage of the full range of Kant’s ideas, the book explores his so-called Copernican Revolution, the basic framework of his metaphysical outlook, and sets out its implications for his theory of knowledge, moral philosophy and theory of beauty and design. Crucially the book situates Kant in relation to other philosophers of his period, and it shows how a number of his seminal ideas can be clearly understood through an appreciation of their opposing views. This is the ideal introduction for anyone coming to the work of this hugely important thinker for the first time.
