An accessible A-to-Z reference guide to the complex works of the eighteenth-century philosopher.

A great thinker of the Enlightenment, Immanuel Kant was born in Königsberg, Prussia, in 1724. He rarely left his hometown and never left his country. He did, however, frequently venture into the spiritual and boundless realm of human thinking, from which he brought back his great philosophical works.

In the Kant Dictionary, editor Morris Stockhammer brings together essential concepts, terms, meanings, and definitions from Kant’s vast body of work. The goal was to provide a concise reference tool that penetrates Kant’s complex system of thought and elucidates his philosophy. Now students and laypeople may have easier access to works once limited to scholars.
