Book Description

10 Nov 2006 Rethinking the Western Tradition
Immanuel Kant's views on politics, peace, and history have lost none of their relevance since their publication more than two centuries ago. This volume contains a comprehensive collection of Kant's writings on international relations theory and political philosophy, superbly translated and accompanied by stimulating essays. Pauline Kleingeld provides a lucid introduction to the main themes of the volume, and three essays by distinguished contributors follow: Jeremy Waldron on Kant's theory of the state; Michael W. Doyle on the implications of Kant's political theory for his theory of international relations; and Allen W. Wood on Kant's philosophical approach to history and its current relevance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concrete Kant 10 Aug 2009
By Thomas McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've spent a considerable amount of time wrestling with the big canonical books of philosophy, including Kant's three major critiques (of pure reason [theory itself], practical reason, and judgment). And although I've come to find such intensive reading infinitely rewarding and personally edifying, it's frustrating that it presents a high barrier to access for people who are interested but don't have or care to spend as much time bookishly parsing the dense works of philosophers. When I came across this book recently by chance it struck me how much more accessible (even witty, and human) Kant seems when writing on the more concrete matters of engaged politics and history, as opposed to the dry, abstract, straining experience of the three critiques. I might be biased for having some experience with the latter, but I think a reading of these works on the political and historical can give the astute reader the general sense of Kant's philosophy as a whole, as worked out in the critiques, and a sense of why it was and still is so important, compelling, and relevant today.
