Aimed at students coming to the book for the first time, James O'Shea's short introduction provides a step by step analysis of Kant's text in clear, unambiguous prose. The conceptual problems Kant sought to resolve are outlined, and his conclusions concerning the nature of the faculty of human knowledge and the possibility of metaphysics as well as the arguments for those conclusions are explored. In addition, O'Shea shows how the Critique fits into the history of modern philosophy and how transcendental idealism affected the course of philosophy. Key concepts are explained throughout and the student is provided with an excellent route map through the various parts of the text. Series description: The books in This Way Up, a new series from Acumen Publishing, provide guides to the major works of the philosophical canon.
