Immanuel Kant was one of the most significant philosophers of the modern age, many aspects of Kant's thoughts are not easy to understand and a guide like this Historical Dictionary of Kant and Kantianism should be very welcome not only to students, but also teachers and the general public, since it contains hundreds of entries describing Kant's life and works and explaining his concepts as well as the contributions of his followers (and also some opponents). Given the inevitable problems of language, the glossary is particularly helpful. And the bibliography makes the massive literature more accessible.

Review:

The importance of Kant for both the cognitive sciences and ethics cannot be overemphasized, but understanding the nuances of Kant's arguments remains a difficult task. Holzhey and Mudroch have provided a comprehensive dictionary of Kantian, neo-Kantian, and oppositional concepts, and a bibliography that will aid this undertaking. Also included are a chronology, introduction, appendixes listing Kant's published writings and 19th-century English translations of Kant, and a glossary. This work should prove valuable to scholars, students, laypeople, and professional philosophers who wish to learn more about Kant's philosophy and the influential paths it has taken. Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above; general readers. CHOICE A concise reference work designed for both the serious student of Kant and the professional philosopher is sorely needed. Holzhey and Mudroch's significant work covers a wide range of historical topics...This is an important text that places Kant in historical perspective, and is useful for the informal student of Continental philosophy. Scholars will find hidden wealth in the introduction and bibliography. American Reference Books Annual It presents an impressive cache of information regarding the leading figures and schools...Its bibliography alone will be a wonderful resource. Philosophy in Review, October 2006 Pick up nearly any work in philosophy, history, literature, economics or sociology published in the last couple of hundred years and you will find at least one reference to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, or his Critique of Judgment or Critique of Practical Reason. You will also probably find a multitude of interpretations and commentaries by Kantians and neokantians, many of which conflict. Sorting it all out and explaining the various schools of thought is the job of this reference, so it includes an introduction to the various schools of thought, explanations of the basics as Kant wrote them and as others reacted to them, a comprehensive bibliography, a glossary, a list of Kant's published writings, and a list of nineteenth-century translations into English. It also includes biographical sketches of those concerned and period illustrations. Reference and Research Book News
