Synopsis

The book has an active table of contents for easy access to each chapter of the following titles:

1. THE CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON - IMMANUEL KANT

2. THE CRITIQUE OF JUDGEMENT - IMMANUEL KANT

3. THE CRITIQUE OF PRACTICAL REASON - IMMANUEL KANT

Immanuel Kant was a great philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of philosophy. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers as Aristotle, Isaac Newton, John Locke, David Hume, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and John Stuart Mill. Their thoughts had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

Kant published his most influential work The Critique of Pure Reason in 1781 and the book was regarded as Kant's First Critique.  Kant’s Second Critique was Critique of Practical Reason published in 1788. His Third Critique was the Critique of Judgment published in 1790.

In the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant explained what he meant by a critique of pure reason: "I do not mean by this a critique of books and systems, but of the faculty of reason in general, in respect of all knowledge after which it may strive independently of all experience."

Kant argued in The Critique of Pure Reason that truths of reason must be analytic, what is stated in the predicate must already be present in the subject, and the judgment is analytic because it is ascertained by analyzing the subject.

Kant published The Critique of Judgment in 1790 to lay the foundations for modern aesthetics. In The Critique of Judgment, Kant explored the limits and conditions of knowledge and argued for an approach to the problems in which space and time are not to be objects but subjects. He concluded that there are certain fundamental antinomies in human Reason, on the one hand behavior and thought are determined by external causes, and on the other there is an actual spontaneous causal principle at work in human behavior.

Kant published The Critique of Practical Reason in 1788 to lay the foundations for modern moral philosophy. In The Critique of Practical Reason, Kant explored a decisive influence on the subsequent development of the field of ethics and moral philosophy. He concluded that practical reason is the capability of determining the will by applying a general principle that can be either a maxim if it is based on a desire or a law if it applies universally.

Kant’s work produced great influence on modern philosophy and logic. His view became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical voice and his influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about philosophy beyond the level of debate between the rationalists and empiric by Immanuel Kant, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy on the planet.
