Kant in the Land of Extraterrestrials

Cosmopolitical Philosofictions

Peter Szendy

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • How could one resist a title like this one? It's even more ravishing in the original FrenchDSKant chez les extraterrestres. In this book, philosopher and musicology Peter Szendy follows out one of the stranger of Kant's many strange metaphorical threads to analyze the notion of the earthly globe in Kantian thinking.
  • The style is marked by the same oblique and charming wit to be found in Szendy's other books.
  • Szendy is an increasingly well-known presence on the American scene, as witness his semester spent teaching at Princeton last spring and his appearance at a conference at Yale last fall (where the audience and speakers were all assumed to have read Hits).
