About the Book

The foundational work of modern philosophy is Kant's The Critique of Pure Reason, published in 1781. It offers a thorough and challenging inquiry into the characteristics of human reason, including its knowledge and illusions. Kant contends that while reason is the source of some conceptions that precede experience and enable it, we are not permitted to infer anything about the natural world from these notions. The Critique brings together the two conflicting philosophical systems of rationalism and empiricism, which trace all of our knowledge back to experience and reason. The transcendental idealism of Kant suggests a third option that goes well beyond these two. Between "analytic" and "synthetic" judgments, Kant makes a distinction. Simply by analyzing the components that make up an analytical judgment, one may determine if it is true. Synthetic judgments don't actually contribute anything to a notion; they only describe what the idea already has.The Critique first drew little attention, but as time passed, it came under attack from both empiricist and rationalist critics, sparking debate. The work is seen as making a significant contribution to modern philosophical thinking.

About Author

Immanuel Kant

One of the key figures in the Enlightenment was the German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724 April 1724 - 12 February 1804). Despite never being married. Kant appears to have led a fulfilling social life. Before writing his main philosophical writings, he worked as a teacher and a mildly successful novelist. He had an extremely disciplined and strict life. He is well recognized for his contributions to metaphysical and ethical philosophy. The False Subtlety of the Four Syllogistic Figures, published in the 1760s, marked the start of Kant's mature work. He was appointed Professor of Logic and Metaphysics at Königsberg University in 1770 at the age of 45. In 1765, he wrote The Sensible and Intelligible World as his first dissertation. In 1781, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason got published. Kant's health was poor for a long time and deteriorated. He died in Königsberg on February 12, 1804, saying "Es ist gut"(it is good) just before he died. Kant was first buried within the cathedral, but in 1880 his remains were transferred to a neo-Gothic chapel that stood next to the cathedral's northeast corner. The chapel was demolished when it deteriorated over time to create room for the tomb, which was built on the same location.
