Kant (The Routledge Philosophers) (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 28 jun 2006
Descripción del producto
‘This is the clearest, most comprehensive book on Kant’s "critical philosophy" written in English…Guyer’s book is clearly written and keeps enough distance from Kant’s texts to be helpful to nonspecialists; it also stays close enough to be nuanced and valuable even for Kant specialists.’ A.N. Bunch, Choice
'Kant is an absolutely first-rate general introduction to Kant's Critical Philosophy. Paul Guyer's interpretations are extremely well-supported, carefully and crisply argued, and highly insightful.' Robert Hanna, University of Colorado, USA
‘An impressive overview of the various strands of Kant’s philosophy. With great skill Guyer manages to compress Kant’s critical thought into a few hundred pages. This book will provide an excellent introduction to Kant’s thought.’ Philip Stratton-Lake, University of Reading, UK
‘That Guyer is able to cover this much material, clearly and without oversimplification, in a single, reasonably sized volume represents a unique accomplishment, which should prove to be extremely useful to a broad audience.’ Eric Watkins, University of California, San Diego, USA
Reseña del editor
In this outstanding introduction, Paul Guyer uses Kant’s central conception of autonomy as the key to all the major aspects and issues of Kant’s thought.
Beginning with a helpful overview of Kant’s life and times, Guyer introduces Kant’s metaphysics and epistemology, carefully explaining his arguments about the nature of space, time and experience in his most influential but difficult work, The Critique of Pure Reason. He offers an explanation and critique of Kant’s famous theory of transcendental idealism and shows how much of Kant’s philosophy is independent of this controversial doctrine.
He then examines Kant’s moral philosophy, his celebrated ‘Categorical imperative’ and his theories of duty, freedom of will and political rights. Finally, he covers Kant’s aesthetics, in particular his arguments about the nature of beauty and the sublime, and their relation to human freedom and happiness. He also considers Kant’s view that the development of human autonomy is the only goal that we can conceive for both natural and human history.

Kant by Paul Guyer has been the first one that I read in The Routledge Philosopher Series. This is a very good read for those that are beginning to read philosophy (like me). Paul Guyer takes some very complex thought and explains it in very good terms for the layperson (versus the student or scholar of philosophy). Mr. Guyer uses many quotes from the actual texts of Kant. However, Mr. Guyer then explains what Kant was trying to say since many times the meaning is not apparent from the actual text itself.
This book has very good sections on the Catagorical Imparative as well as Kant's Copernian Revolution. I also especially enjoyed the section on Kant's political philosophy whereby Kant believes that the people do not have a right to rebel against their government if such a government is a republic.
I recommend this book for those that want to learn in general terms Kant philosophy. It has very good print and it a very good read. Even though this book was written for the non-student, it can still be a difficult read at times. This is merely based upon the thought of Kant instead of any defect in the writing by Mr. Guyer. Mr. Guyer did a very good job of bringing Kant's philosophy to the average reader of phiolosophy.
I look forward to reading more works in The Routledge Philosopher Series. In fact, I have already started the book on Hobbes.
As i before mentioned, it is not the best Kant crash course due to Guyer's highly analytical and suggestive way of writting, wherein he writes both critiquing and supporting Kant's ideas, however if you enjoy and are able to comprehend such debate, it can easily serve as a strong introduction. Personally I would recommend starting with something like Kant's Prolegomena. This way you get a very good book that serves as an introduction to his critical philosophy (of Pure Reason) and also is free of any argumentation as to its correctness, thus allowing the reader to create his own opinion of Kant.
