Kant (PHIL423/523)
Professor: Wayne Wright
Mondays & Wednesdays  ·  11:00am–12:15pm  ·  LA5–149

This course will focus on Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, with a particular emphasis on coming to grips with the centerpiece of the Critique—the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories of the Understanding.

We will cover Kant’s handling of the nature of space and time, the relationship between experience and the understanding, the self, and freedom. We will also take up the broader consequences of Kant’s transcendental idealism for the possibility of knowledge of the world and its ramifications for the sciences.
