This book was truly revolutionary. Critique marks the last phase of the Enlightenment period and opens the transition into more modern philosophy. Whether you are a fan of Hegel, Heidegger or Russell, there's no way to start without first responding to the Kantian challenge.

Put in most simple terms, what Kant did was place the subject and experience as the starting point and the limitation of reason. He argues his point meticulously and systematically. Some reviewers have criticized Kant for being "obscure," my hypothesis is that these reviewers simply didn't bother to check a dictionary when an uncommon term arose.
