I finished The Critique of Pure Reason recently. Its comprehensibility is not aided by translation from German. I can't (haha) say that I fully "got" it - there were moments where Kant's insight shone like a beacon, but others where it was a fog of swirling words. It would have been interesting to see what Kant would have done had he lived after Godel, who put an end to the idea of a complete, consistent formal system once and for all.
