My favorite history of philosophy, this is a rigorous but readable source for understanding the essential ideas of major philosophers. This volume, as indicated in the title has a major focus on Kant's philosophy with two sections discussing his work. The philosophers that follow immediately after Kant are discussed by focusing on their reaction to Kant's views. There are both sections devoted to Nietzsche and Kierkegaard plus sections on Peirce, William James, and Bradley.

I took an intro to philosophy in my early years in the Univ of Oslo. It was obligatory and not a few fellow students fussed about it. I, a little strangely, found it interesting. It was my first formal exposure to the western philosophy.

Had to read this book, some chapters are obligatory, some others I did if for fun when I had the time :-)
Not so easy reading though...
