Introduction by Allen W. Wood
With translations by F. Max Mller and Thomas K. Abbott
The writings of Immanuel Kant became the cornerstone of all subsequent philosophical inquiry. They articulate the relationship between the human mind and all that it encounters and remain the most important influence on our concept of knowledge. As renowned Kant scholar Allen W. Wood writes in his Introduction, Kant virtually laid the foundation for the way people in the last two centuries have confronted such widely differing subjects as the experience of beauty and the meaning of human history. Edited and compiled by Dr. Wood, Basic Writings of Kant stands as a comprehensive summary of Kants contributions to modern thought, and gathers together the most respected translations of Kants key moral and political writings.
