Rethinking Kant: Volume 4

The series Rethinking Kant, now in its fourth volume, has become a mirror of Kantian studies in North America. It gathers papers presented at the various study groups of the North American Kant Society, along with contributions from hosts, session chairs, and keynote speakers. Contributions undergo strenuous peer review, and are, without exception, examples of the most innovative and cutting-edge research done in this area. Anyone interested in taking the pulse of contemporary Kantian scholarship and engaging in the humbling, but rewarding task of rethinking Kant, should consider this collection.

Oliver Thorndike teaches in the Department of Humanities at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. He is the editor of the third volume of Rethinking Kant (Cambridge Scholars, 2011), and the author of articles on the influence of the early modern philosopher Baumgarten on Kant’s ethical thought (2008; 2010). His latest book, Kant’s Transition Project, is currently in preparation. Since 2014, he has been the Chair of the Eastern Study Group of the North American Kant Society (ENAKS).

"This new volume in what has become a well-established series featuring work by junior, as well as senior, philosopher-scholars invites the reader to rethink Kant in two ways: as an epistemologist, by re-examining the relation between the real and the ideal in his theoretical philosophy, and as an ethicist, by reassessing the relation between deontology and teleology in his practical philosophy. In their entirety, the volume’s nine contributions seek to add to the austere Kant of principles and prescripts a more popular Kant of concrete subjectivity and worldly wisdom."
