Review:

Thorpe examines Kant thematically rather than chronologically. Each entry expounds on a concept's meaning and relationship to the work in which it is found; many entries also examine Kant's other works and key concepts. The author accomplishes this contextualization by providing plenty of see [sic] references that thematically relate entries to one another. Though this work is shorter than most comparable dictionaries, readers who are newly acquainted with Kant's works and ideas (the work's primary audience) will benefit from the concise, well-written, approachable text, which is less overwhelming than other, similar works. Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduates and general readers. -- J. S. Sabol, Marymount California University * CHOICE * This book offers a broad overview of Kantian belief. * Theologie und Philosophie (Bloomsbury translation) * Lucas Thorpe's Kant Dictionary provides clear and concise entries on Kant's chief works, their chief concepts, and the chief figures in Kant's intellectual world from Descartes and Leibniz to Rousseau and Hume. This work will be of immense value to students of Kant while its suggestive approaches and criticisms will be of interest even to experienced scholars. * Paul Guyer, Jonathan Nelson Professor of Humanities and Philosophy, Department of Philosophy, Brown University, USA * The Kant Dictionary by Lucas Thorpe provides an accessible overview of Immanuel Kant's texts and terminology, and of the major influences on his work. Entries are helpfully cross-referenced and direct the reader to relevant chapters in Kant's corpus. This dictionary will thus be a useful reference tool for students seeking to gain insight into Kant's philosophy. * Kathleen A. Moran, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Brandeis University, USA *
