The A to Z of Kant and Kantianism by Helmut Holzhey Book PDF Summary
Few philosophers stand out as boldly as Immunuel Kant (1724-1804). His principal works, including Critique of Pure Reason, Critique of Practical Reason, and Critique of Judgement, are known worldwide. During his time, schools of Kantianism quickly sprang up and were later joined by schools of Neokantianism. Admittedly, not all of Kant's concepts have aged well, but many are still taught today among the basics of philosophy. Holzhey and Mudroch provide a comprehensive dictionary that will aid not only students but also teachers and the general public, with hundreds of entries describing Kant's life, works, and concepts, as well as the contributions of his followers and opponents. Furthermore, much of the writings of the Neokantians and the literature dealing with this movement are not available in English, thus The A to Z of Kant and Kant and Kantianism provides an introduction for the English-language reader. Given the inevitable problems of language, the glossary is particularly helpful, while the bibliography makes the massive amount of literature more accessible.
