The text rendered by Pluhar is the work of an expert translator... the virtues of his text are manifold; his translation exhibits an incontrovertible mastery of both English and German. Equally important is the fact that Pluhar has given the original a very close read during the act of translating... Pluhar consistently resists the tendency to translate woodenly word-for-word... In point of fact, accuracy of translation stands in no direct relation to literalness; it is much more a product of meticulous textual reading and skilful writing, and in this respect Pluhar has no modern equals in English Kant translation. --James Jakob Fehr, Kant-Studien --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
This entirely new translation of Critique of Pure Reason is the most accurate and informative English translation ever produced of this epochal philosophical text. Its simple, direct style will make it suitable for all new readers of Kant, however the translation displays a sophistication that will enlighten Kant scholars as well. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
