A collection of Lewis Beck's writings on the philosophy and interpretation of Immanuel Kant. The main problem in so many studies of Kant is completely absent in this one: the almost obligatory adoption of Kant's abstruseness with none of the genius or insight that makes it forgivable.
A collection of Lewis Beck's writings on the philosophy and interpretation of Immanuel Kant. In other words, there is a difference between being dense and just being dense. It is clear that Beck is writing from a place of knowledge, finding such metaphysical mind games unnecessary. He instead gives a neat guide to the deepest nooks and crannies of 'Transcendental idealism'. I am quite glad to have found such a no-nonsense book about Kant. Learn more about this copy.

Kant's Groundwork (or Foundations) of the Metaphysics of Morals is probably the single most influential work of philosophical ethics since Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics. While Kant himself considered this a sort of introduction to ethical thinking, it's come to be his most influential and widely read work on ethics. There's a short, albeit useful, introductory essay in which Beck sketches the main outlines of the argument of the Groundwork's three sections and considers and dismisses some common objections to Kant's moral theory.

The late Lewis White Beck, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester for many years, was one of the world's leading Kant scholars. Beck considered the most significant element of Kant's rich, complex, and controversial legacy to be the ultimate philosoophical question: 'What is Man?' Kant's answer - that humans are creators - is ambiguous. On the one hand, it dignifies humans by elevating them above blind mechanical forces of nature.

Kant is best known for his work in the philosophy of ethics and metaphysics, but he made significant contributions to other disciplines. In 1757, Kant began lecturing on geography being one of the first people to explicitly teach geography as its own subject. Geography was one of Kant's most popular lecturing topics and in 1802 a compilation by Friedrich Theodor Rink of Kant's lecturing notes, Physical Geography, was released. In the early 1760s, Kant produced a series of important works in philosophy. The False Subtlety of the Four Syllogistic Figures, a work in logic, was published in 1762.
