It can be frustrating to get through but if you can make it to about 400 pages it all magically fits together and the remaining few hundred pages are much more manageable. Recommend reading it with some other people (we had an entire upper level philosophy class devoted to just this book) to stay on track if you plan to read it. (less)

Thesis

Turgid, dogmatic, overrated and well past its sell-by.

Proof

As Einstein exasperatedly said: if Kant had only been able to stop pontificating about the nature of time and space, he might actually have discovered something interesting about them. Einstein, with considerable justification, felt that he had refuted Kant, and was surprised to find that philosophers were reluctant to accept his claim. To me, it seems clear-cut. Kant repeatedly tells us that time and space are not things; but Eins

Immanuel Kant is the kind of guy who not only sucks all of the joy out of life; he takes great pleasure in opening the spigot of your happiness-tank and watching it all spill out onto the burn-out lawn and sink into the earth -- seeping toward the planet's molten, pitiless core and, thereupon, toward its irrevocable dissipation.

If he were alive today, I suggest to you that Kant's corporeal manifestation would be that of a paunchy, balding man, eternally sixty years old, who is often seen in his

“...Reason should take on anew the most difficult of all its tasks, namely, that of self-knowledge, and to institute a court of justice, by which reason may secure its rightful claims while dismissing all its groundless pretensions, and this not by mere decrees but according to its own eternal and unchangeable laws; and this court is none other than the critique of pure reason itself.”

Kant's critical turn shows that the problem of self-knowledge, not metaphysics, is the true subject matter for

When I was about seven, my favorite movie was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mom was dating this philosophy professor who was writing a book on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. One day, I asked him what it was about, and he told me it was just like Chitty. It was a kind of magic car that - I can still remember his words - "was able to drive on the roads of sensation, float on the water of concepts, and even fly above the sea of transcendental illusion". And then he told me the whole story of Chitty ...more

It is done. I have finally scaled the sheer surface of this work. It involved continual toil, sweat, and suffering—falling down and picking myself up again. But, when you reach the end, when your eyes finally hit the bottom of that final paragraph, the feeling is momentous. You can stand and look down at the steep drop you managed to climb, and reflect with satisfaction that this mountain is one of the tallest. This is an Everest of a book.

That was melodramatic, but only a little. The Critique o

Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason marks what is more or less a beginning of philosophy. It is no longer possible to go back behind his Copernican revolution, as if one could do philosophy without taking into account the subject or consciousness. This turn toward subjectivity is only tightened with the Wittgensteinian and Heideggarian turns toward language. Both naive empiricism (Hume, Locke, etc) and strict rationalism (Leibniz, Wolff, etc) are thoroughly overcome, synthesized if you will. Of cours ...more

I just Kant stand him.

Seriously though... why does so much Western philosophy remind me of arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin? I swear, these gentlemen had their panties wrapped so tightly I don't know how they ever took a proper dump.

The problem with Kant (aside from how much he enjoyed listening to the sound of his own voice droning on and on) is that he was irretrievably mired in a Christian world-view, separated from nature, and cursed with the precision of having b

With adolescence came nihilistic thoughts of suicide. The reasoning was simple. The public schools and an early interest in the sciences had led me to believe that we are part of an ordered universe, the parts of which are finite, the rules of which are determinable. Like an eighteenth century philosophe, I believed the hypothesis of a creative entity outside of the system, a deity, to be unnecessary. In principle, everything was determined, the past seminally containing all of the future. In pr ...more

Both frightfully obscure and logically scrupulous, Kant functions sort of like a philosophical litmus test. Many a metaphysical charlatan (Lacan, Žižek, et. al.) has aped his mystifying prose-style without any attempt to match his rigour. And meanwhile, the most provincial of the analytic camp, unduly equating "abstruseness" with "bullshit," write him off as a mere historical oddity.

But the truth of the matter is that the Critique—Kant's magnum opus—constitutes one of the most inventive, meticul

Parsing this carefully is exhilarating. At least it was for me. It made me feel like my brain was growing. You may disagree with the system, but the argument is a marvel. Required reading.

immanuel kant is by farrrrr the world's most precise philosopher... EVER! haha.. this text, like many philosophical texts out there... was really dry.. and um.. long. but there's definitely a reason why this one's regarded as one of the greatest philosophical pieces out there. so the book's premise in a nutshell... noone can argue FOR or AGAINST an afterlife/God. he also digs into the idea that our understanding of the world and our ideas are based not only on experience, but on a priori concept ...more

I am not going to attempt to provide a run down of this book, since at over 700 pages of dense and meticulous argumentation, I would not be able to do it justice. However, I will touch on some of what I consider the most important points raised.

The book is incredibly dense, but very well written on the whole. Kant is rigorous in both how he structures chapters to lead onto one another nicely and his argumentation itself. Slow and careful reading is required to get the most out of this, as Kant s

Today, everyone claims to be Kantian, and few have dared to read it. It is true that among the philosophers there is Kant and the others. He is a problematic philosopher by the subtleties of his language and the blunders of his translators; however, contrary to what we have said above, everything has been said, he never wanted to say more, to go further. Once the curtain is closed, mass is said. Good luck to those who have enough to get started.

I read a 224-page abridged version first, so I got to double down on some of the most important parts and get a deeper understanding of this laborious read. I spent a lot of time reading pre- and post-Kantian philosophy, as well as two short books by Kant himself, in order to prep for this. If you are new to philosophy and metaphysics, don't just dive right into this. Check out some of the major figures who are easier to understand than Kant. You're probably going to need to look up a lot of wor ...more

It's recommended to have at least read Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Leibniz, and Hume before reading this. And since reading this is a skeleton key of sorts to all philosophy since Kant, he's in this really interesting point between two eras of philosophy. Some of what makes him hard to follow at first is that which defines his approach to philosophy, which is intensely meticulous and methodical, yet laid out plainly. And after you start appreciating his ideas and style, you start getting not on ...more

I'm trying to decide whether or not I get it.

Sometimes I think I have just understood a passage of Kant only to discover that I have actually just been having my own thoughts pertaining to something or other in the content of the passage, and this is sometimes rewarding, but it is nevertheless not exactly what I intended to accomplish.

Say Kant is writing about perception or being, and say I misunderstand Kant-- what exactly happens when I misunderstand Kant, and by misunderstanding him, discov

how to review CPR? there are various ways of reviewing books, dogmatic review is one of them. according to this method our writings deal to the text exactly as it is, that is what Kant calls dogmatic method. in that cease one claims that he fully explored every component of book and has absolute knowledge of it.

Parts and pieces of this master work intrigued and enlightened me, but Kant's overall proposal escapes my grasp. After reading through it, I can see why no univocal interpretation of the text can ever be possible.

The troubling aspect of Critique is its complexity. No explanatory system should demand an exegesis so convoluted, using so much idiosyncratic language, and terminating in so many loose ends and vagaries. Intended to explain the world of experience, among other things, this book instead

This book is another of those laborious, sluggish reads, folks, yet one so highly considered that it merits eventual attention. My interpretation is that Kant takes on the nature of knowledge, and ultimately truth, along several dimensions, including time and space. He treats the processing of thoughts with a formalism that marks a significant departure from the seemingly random assemblages of the ancients. He defines his subject as follows:
Now from all of this there results the idea of a specia

My advice for anyone beginning the K.d.r.V. is to maintain your independence of judgment. Don't get buried in the terminology, the secondary literature or your own obsessions or reasons for approaching the book. Try to think through what Kant is saying and bring before your mind all of the possibilities for what he could mean, then eliminate them one by one, until you have arrived at your reading of the Kritik. I would encourage doing Leibniz and the Pre-Critical writings first, otherwise you wi ...more

I'd forgotten just how DENSE of a work this is. It's much harder to read without a classroom full of fellow philosophers to help parse out sections I can't quite understand. Still one of my favorite kind of books though, the kind you have to mark-up with a pen and highlighter as you go, making notes to yourself and highlighting important passages.

Well shitballs. Manny's frequent tantalizing updates, pretty much Nathan's entire existence on this site, and Žižek's constant referring back to it have convinced me that this is an unavoidable book. So a copy is now in my hands.

This is a great work. Nearly all philosophy after has been a reaction to it or an outgrowth from it. One cannot tell if this is because Kant was truly so influential or because he saw with such depth and unity the fruitful course philosophy would take.

The language can be daunting and exhausting. It is, however, precise and if one can follow the concepts in it, it works almost like a dry poetry that seems to lay bare the foundations of knowledge and experience. It is such a chore to wade through

Reading the Critique of Pure Reason is a necessary landmark to immerse in modern philosophy, an excruciating and at times unbearable path to transit, but definitely a turning point in one's approach to what philosophy is.

The first time I read the transcendental aesthetics - perhaps I'm too easy to impress - I felt physically dizzy, space and time around me seemed to collapse under the weight of the long ago uttered arguments of Kant.

I thank God for sending Kant to the world, and for everything Kant had brought into the world. It's impossible to imagine what the world is like without him. Kant is not just a hero. He's a prophet of the new age; age of reason.

Kant was one of the first philosophers who think about the very process of thinking. He showed us how the human mind and cognitive structure were set up such that we know anything at all. Kant also postulated a different way of understanding reality: Reality is not only p

Kind of good actually. If you get used to style; Kant rocks it when talking about limitations of logical reasoning. He is brilliant in pointing out fallacies in reasoning of different philosophical systems (well, philosophers are normally very good at pointing out faults in each-other's systems.) If you love logical reasoning, you will love this book - ironically given that book is supposed to be a critique of pure reason. Kant gives some very good reasons and examples to show limitations of rea ...more
