I've slowly been working through Copleston's history of philosophy series, reading about a book a year. This book is basically all about Kant. Sure there is a couple chapters covering a few other people and movements, but Kant is the focus. If you are looking to learn about philosophy, this book, like the series, will stretch you. That is, I would not put these books in the beginner category. Copleston gives an overview, but an in depth overiew (hence the nine volumes). Its probably the best you ...more

The sixth volume of Copleston's history, and the last one I finished the first time I read these in college, so the last three will be for the first time. This volume covers the Enlightenment/Aufklärung (about 40% of the book, or part one in the old paperback edition which divided it into two books) with particular emphasis on Rousseau, and the philosophy of Kant (about 60%). The treatment of the Enlightenment was as fair as one could hope for from a Catholic priest who is obviously not sympathe ...more

Copleston provides a detailed and (largely) accessible treatment of Kant for intermediate readers of philosophy.

Far superior to Kant's version. Copleston's prose is actually understandable.
