'Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration. . . the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.’
Immanuel Kant (1724– 1804) remains a major influence in philosophy, especially in the areas of epistemology, ethics, theology, political theory and aesthetics. This brief history helpfully explains the development of Kant’s thought, and highlights its contemporary relevance, by considering each of his major works in their order of appearance.
The book has a brief chronology at the front plus a glossary of key terms and a list of further reading at the back.
