Summary

Philosophy for busy people. Listen to this succinct account of the philosophy of Kant in just one hour.

Immanuel Kant taught and wrote prolifically about physical geography yet never travelled farther than 40 miles from his home in Königsberg. Appropriately, his philosophy strenuously denies that all knowledge is derived from experience, insisting instead that all experience must conform to knowledge.

Kant’s aim was to restore metaphysics. According to Kant, space and time are subjective; along with various ‘categories,’ they help us to see the phenomena of the world - though never in its true reality.

This audiobook is an expert account of Kant’s life and philosophical ideas - entertainingly written and is above all easy listening. Also included are selections from Kant’s work, suggested further reading, and chronologies that place Kant in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

”Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them...I find them hard to stop reading.” (New York Times)

”Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise” (Wall Street Journal)

”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.” (Boston Globe)

Good book but....

audio interrupts often on blue tooth with an external speaker. Otherwise, it's an interesting book. Especially for lovers of philosophy.
