Courses: Kant (PHILB330001)
Class Number: 1284
Prerequisite: PHIL 201 or the equivalent. The significance of Kant s transcendental philosophy for thought in the 19th and 20th centuries cannot be overstated. His work is profoundly important for both the analytical and the so-called continental schools of thought. This course will provide a close study of Kant s breakthrough work: The Critique of Pure Reason. We will read and discuss the text with reference to its historical context and with respect to its impact on developments in epistemology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of religion as well as developments in German Idealism and 20th-century phenomenology.
