Review:

Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them...I find them hard to stop reading.--Richard Bernstein "The New York Times "

Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character...I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization.--Katherine A. Powers "The Boston Globe "

A godsend in this era of the short attention span.--Daryl Royster Alexander "The New York Times "

Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise.--Jim Holt "The Wall Street Journal "

From the Back Cover:

Immanuel Kant taught and wrote prolifically about physical geography yet never traveled farther than forty miles from his home in Konigsberg. How appropriate that in his philosophy he should deny that all knowledge was derived from experience. Kant's aim was to restore metaphysics. He insisted that all experience must conform to knowledge. According to Kant, space and time are subjective; along with various "categories", they help us to see the phenomena of the world - though never its true reality. In Kant in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Kant's life and ideas, and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Kant's work; a brief list of suggested reading for those who wish to push further; and chronologies that place Kant within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.
