Does any of us really know what the truth is, or where to find it?
One of the first properly modern thinkers, Immanuel Kant’s work is marked by a scepticism towards religion and transcendental ideas. And the idea of the elusiveness of truth is central to everything he did.
Every subsequent major philosopher owes a profound debt to his work, and yet Kant remains a controversial figure in the history of philosophy. Why?
In this succinct, witty graphic guide Kant emerges as a diehard rationalist, yet also a Romantic who believed in the primacy of emotion and feeling. Christopher Kul-Want and Andrzej Klimowski explain his challenging ideas and the reasons for his undiminished importance in contemporary philosophy.
