Problems from Kant

James Van Cleve

This rigorous examination of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason provides a comprehensive analysis of the major themes of Kant's most famous work. Author James Van Cleve presents clear and detailed discussions of Kant's transcendental idealism, necessity and analyticity, space and time, substance and cause, noumena and things in themselves, problems of the self, and rational theology. He also discusses the relationship between Kant's thought and modern anti-realism, in particular the work of Putnam and Dummett. Organized around Kant's text but devoted maily to philosophical understanding of Kant's problems, the book makes a significant contribution to the literature while at the same time making Kant's work accessible to serious students.
