In this course we will study Kant’s mature theoretical philosophy—i.e. his metaphysics and epistemology—through a close reading of his magnum opus, The Critique of Pure Reason (1781/1787), and closely related materials. Our goals will be to learn the basic elements of Kant’s transcendental idealism, to identify Kant’s philosophical objectives, and to evaluate his methodology. Thence we will be able to understand Kant’s place in the history of western philosophy. The course will emphasize the skills of textual and theoretical interpretation and of philosophical evaluation.
