Prolegomena is basically Kant's simplified version of his "Critique of Pure Reason". It's not an easy read, but you don't need a degree in philosophy to understand it and it is essential reading for anyone interested in space and time, or in the question of what we can know and how we can know it.
The really great thing about Prolegomena, as with Critique of Pure Reason, is that it is highly logical; there are no "smoke and mirrors" or unsubstantiated opinions here. You can read it side by side with any book on modern theoretical physics to the advantage of both approaches; equally, anyone who is inclined to a religious disposition but also likes to be highly logical will find this book very interesting reading. Kant takes questions like "do we have free will" and "is there a God?" and essentially solves them once and for all, at least to his own satisfaction - but you might not like the answers.

The Antinomies are too complex and mysterious to the instrument of Reason: this is why one should be so enthusiastic to end It [i.e. the Reason] through Aleister Crowley's " Liber OS ABYSMI vel DAATH," which will cause a replacement of It with Ultimately Higher Faculties.
The Reason has been proved to be so droolingly absurd by Kant in his boring literary form. He needs an upgrade via activation of the Poetical Faculties -- I am not here speaking of the former paragraph's identity of expression. His style is so sublimely shown to be in an opposed functioning with most other philosophical books.
An excellent method to become a Subjective Idealist is propounded here in this treatise.
