After journeying into the world of philosophy by starting with the great Rene Descartes, I decided to pick up a book by Immanuel Kant. When I began to read this wonderful book about aesthetic beauty, Kant was able to capture my mind. His usage of elegant prose and style gives the reader not only an impression of how well he can write but also how well he can think. Immanuel Kant is one of the greatest philosophers in my opinion because I believe that he is able to give his readers a sense of hope after you read his work.
