The Critique of the Power of Judgment (a more accurate rendition of what has hitherto been translated as the Critique of Judgment) is the third of Kant's great critiques following the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of Practical Reason. This translation of Kant's masterpiece follows the principles and high standards of all other volumes in The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Immanuel Kant. This volume, first published in 2000, includes: the indispensable first draft of Kant's introduction to the work; an English edition notes to the many differences between the first (1790) and second (1793) editions of the work; and relevant passages in Kant's anthropology lectures where he elaborated on his aesthetic views. All in all this edition offers the serious student of Kant a dramatically richer, more complete and more accurate translation.

»Das Urteilen« war von Hannah Arendt als dritter Teil ihres Werkes »Vom Leben des Geistes« geplant und wurde aus dem Nachlass der Philosophin rekonstruiert. Unter Berufung auf Immanuel Kant weist Arendt dem Urteilen im Leben des Geistes einen spezifischen Platz zu. Mit seiner Hilfe orientiert sich der Mensch in der Welt, schafft er Sinn. Ein breites Spektrum an Fragen wird deshalb sichtbar: Leben, Tod und Liebe, Probleme der Freiheit und der Würde des Menschen.

Logik-Vorlesungen. Unveröffentlichte Nachschriften I

Logik Bauch

Kant hielt seit 1765 regelmäßig Vorlesungen über Logik, denen er ein Exemplar des „Meierschen Lehrbuchs“ von 1752 als Leitfaden zugrunde legte, in welches er fortschreitend Anmerkungen und Erläuterungen eintrug, denen er in seinem Vortrag folgte. Da Kant die Ausarbeitung eines eigenen Handbuchs für seine Vorlesung über Logik nicht selbst vornahm, sondern diese Aufgabe Gottlob Nejamin Jäsche übertrug, der 1800 bei Nicolovius unter dem Titel „Immanuel Kants Logik/ein Handbuch zu Vorlesungen“ die erste und einzige Originalausgabe herausgab, kommt allen auffindbaren Kollegheften und/oder Nachschriften der von Kant gehaltenen Vorlesungen besondere Bedeutung zu für die angemessene und richtige Bewertung der Genese seiner Darstellung und Einteilung der Logik.

Essays on Kant

Essays on Kant contains a collection of seventeen essays written by Henry E. Allison, one of the world's leading scholars on Kant. Although these essays cover virtually the full spectrum of Allison's work on Kant, most of them revolve around three basic themes: the nature of transcendental idealism and its relation to other aspects of Kant's thought; freedom of the will; and the concept of the purposiveness of nature. The first two themes are intended asclarifications, elaborations, and further developments of Allison's previous work on Kant, while the essays on the third theme demonstrate the central place of Kant's 'critical' philosophy in his thought.Allison places Kant's views in their historical context and explores their contemporary relevance to present day philosophers.

Custom and Reason in Hume

A Kantian Reading of the First Book of the Treatise

Author: Henry E. Allison

Publisher: OUP Oxford

ISBN: 0191559784

Category: Philosophy

Page: 432

View: 3699

Henry Allison examines the central tenets of Hume's epistemology and cognitive psychology, as contained in the Treatise of Human Nature. Allison takes a distinctive two-level approach. On the one hand, he considers Hume's thought in its own terms and historical context. So considered, Hume is viewed as a naturalist, whose project in the first three parts of the first book of the Treatise is to provide an account of the operation of the understanding in which reason is subordinated to custom and other non-rational propensities. Scepticism arises in the fourth part as a form of metascepticism, directed not against first-order beliefs, but against philosophical attempts to ground these beliefs in the "space of reasons." On the other hand, Allison provides a critique of these tenets from a Kantian perspective. This involves a comparison of the two thinkers on a range of issues, including space and time, causation, existence, induction, and the self. In each case, the issue is seen to turn on a contrast between their underlying models of cognition. Hume is committed to a version of the perceptual model, according to which the paradigm of knowledge is a seeing with the "mind's eye" of the relation between mental contents. By contrast, Kant appeals to a discursive model in which the fundamental cognitive act is judgment, understood as the application of concepts to sensory data, Whereas regarded from the first point of view, Hume's account is deemed a major philosophical achievement, seen from the second it suffers from a failure to develop an adequate account of concepts and judgment.

This 2005 volume provides an extensive translation of the notes and fragments that survived Kant's death in 1804. These include marginalia, lecture notes, and sketches and drafts for his published works. They are important as an indispensable resource for understanding Kant's intellectual development and published works, casting fresh light on Kant's conception of his own philosophical methods and his relations to his predecessors, as well as on central doctrines of his work such as the theory of space, time and categories, the refutations of scepticism and metaphysical dogmatism, the theory of the value of freedom and the possibility of free will, the conception of God, the theory of beauty, and much more.

Kant: Religion Within the Boundaries of Mere Reason

And Other Writings

Author: Immanuel Kant,Allen Wood,George Di Giovanni

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: Philosophy

Page: 229

View: 5542

Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason is a key element of the system of philosophy which Kant introduced with his Critique of Pure Reason, and a work of major importance in the history of Western religious thought. It represents a great philosopher's attempt to spell out the form and content of a type of religion that would be grounded in moral reason and would meet the needs of ethical life. It includes sharply critical and boldly constructive discussions on topics not often treated by philosophers, including such traditional theological concepts as original sin and the salvation or 'justification' of a sinner, and the idea of the proper role of a church. This volume presents it and three short essays that illuminate it in new translations by Allen Wood and George di Giovanni, with an introduction by Robert Merrihew Adams that locates it in its historical and philosophical context.

Dazu werden die Idee der Freiheit, die Idee der Unsterblichkeit der Seele und die Idee Gottes als unbeweisbare, aber notwendige Postulate der Vernunft charakterisiert. Den Menschen selbst entwirft Kant dabei als eine Person, in der gutes Prinzip und böses Prinzip miteinander notwendig im Wettstreit liegen.

Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics, and the Digital

Author: Claire Colebrook

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 1441114378

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 200

View: 9493

Drawing on recent theories of digital media and on the materiality of words and images, this fascinating study makes three original claims about the work of William Blake. First, Blake offers a critique of digital media. His poetry and method of illuminated printing is directed towards uncovering an analogical language. Second, Blake's work can be read as a performative. Finally, Blake's work is at one and the same time immanent and transcendent, aiming to return all forms of divinity and the sacred to the human imagination, stressing that 'all deities reside in the human breast,' but it also stresses that the human has powers or potentials that transcend experience and judgement: deities reside in the human breast. These three claims are explored through the concept of incarnation: the incarnation of ideas in words and images, the incarnation of words in material books and their copies, the incarnation of human actions and events in bodies, and the incarnation of spirit in matter.
