Kant's AnalyticMr Bennett, As Was To Be Expected, Has Written A 1st Rate Book On Kant S Analytic It S Vivid, Entertaining Extremely Instructive It Will Be Found Of Absorbing Interest Both By Those Who Already Know The Critique By Those If There Are Any Such Who Have A Developed Interest In Philosophy, Yet No Direct Acquaintance With Kant These Last It Will Surely Drive To The Text , As Surely, Will Drive Them To Approach It In A Truly Philosophical Spirit Bennett S Kant Isn T A Giant Immersed, Or Frozen, In Time He S A Great Contemporary A Little Out Of Touch, Admittedly, With Recent Developments In Mathematics Physics But One With Whom We Can All Argue, Against Him, At His Side, Or Obliquely To Him So Bennett Does Argue, Continuously, Fiercely Fruitfully Summons To Join In The Argument, At Appropriate Moments, Those Older Contemporaries, Locke, Leibniz, Berkeley Hume, Those Younger Contemporaries, Wittgenstein, Ryle, Ayler, Quine, Quinton, Warnock Etc This Is Splendid, A Necessary Corrective To That Extraordinary Isolation In Which Kant Tends To Be Islanded, Partly Indeed, By His Own Unique Qualities, But Partly By Oceans Of The Wrong Kind Of Respect Bennett, Continuously Engaging His Great Antagonist, Shows The Right Kind.

    Je Suis Charlie10 January 2015 Okay Kant may not be satire, nor is he French, but as I was finishing off this academic analysis of the second half of his A Critique of Pure Reason I could not help but think that there is some connection between his writings from two hundred years ago and the tragic events in Paris over the last week I guess in many ways it has a lot to do with freedom of speech and with the idea of censorship, which may not be what Kant was necessarily writing about, but he does explore the idea of freedom, especially freedom to be able to think outside of the dogmatic circles of his day In another way many of us here are writers and while we may not be paid for the writing that we do, those of us who write reviews, blog posts, or even academic essays are still writers and as such the brutal murder at Charlie Hebdo no doubt struck a chord it did so with myself However, moving on I should say a few things about this particular book Bennett outlines the reason for writing this book to make the second half of Critique of Pure Reason accessible to many of us Personally I didn t really think that he was all that successful in that regards because, to me, it seemed to be little than another dry academic text to go along with the plethora of other academic texts on the subject In a way I felt that maybe I would get a lot out of reading Kant as opposed to reading a book about him It is interesting though to examine the philosophy of ...
