it was amazing
Read in September, 2006

Let's face it: KANT IS HARD. Kant is probably the most difficult philosopher to understand. But to his defense, he was charged with the task of determining the exact nature and limits to pure reason (i.e. cogent thought), which would be hard for anyone to put forth in under 500 pages.

Sebastian Gardner, having the foresight of many generations, has written this guidebook to Kant which, in my opinion, is absolutely fundamental to understanding such a complex and revolutionary philosopher. It's easy to get confused and to lose sight of the overall arguments that Kant is trying to create. Consider this book an expert in philosophy who reads Kant along with some kind of magic fairy that's forced to cater to your every whim. Except your whim is learning philosophy. Even if you had gold bars, you'd still need to learn philosophy. Don't forget that.
