    Kant A Biography eBook ✓ Kant A ePUB ï kant free, biography book, Kant A kindle, Kant A Biography EpubManfred Kuehn's Kant is I think the best biography I've ever read and here are two quick reasons why One Kuehn has to walk a fine line in talking about Kant's life and his ideas Two he has to reconcile a lot of the little ironies about Kant and his life the way people characterized him Kuehn is able to do accomplish both of those goalsNot only does Kuehn let you know the ideas that made Kant famous and important as a philosopher not only does Kuehn let you know about the man's life he's able to synthesize Kant's life and ideas together to form a rich picture of Kant This is pretty tough A biographer who tried might risk reducing all of Kant's life as originating from his philosophical ideas an oversimplification On the other hand a biographer might just mosey on through Kant's life and then drop the fact that Kant produced this or that philosophical work What Kuehn does well in the book is show how Kant's ideas influenced his life and vice versa There's plenty of informatio

    Kant A Biography eBook ✓ Kant A ePUB ï kant free, biography book, Kant A kindle, Kant A Biography EpubA biography is no substitute for a careful study of Kant's works You will not be able to learn Kant a la Cliffnotes by reading this On the other hand I admired how Kuehn discussed those works in capsule form accurately and without bias More interesting however are the characters who surround Kant a nutso born again Christian an English businessman even rulebound than Kant himself but who was an important influence on the Critique a merry divorcee who may have had an eye for Immanuel himself an adulterer who may have been her back up man all those pursuing academic vendettas and infighting Kant himself is revealed as good looking a social butterfly possibly a drunk at one time who had trouble finding his way home intellectual hypochondriac rebel and atheist I knew it Who knew Koenigsburg was such an interesting place?

    Kant A Biography eBook ✓ Kant A ePUB ï kant free, biography book, Kant A kindle, Kant A Biography EpubToo much biographical detail and not enough philosophy for my liking although the author is honest at the outset in saying that this is not an intellectual biography Nonetheless it is amazingly well researched He does a good job of dispelling the myth of Kant as a stuffy old curmudgeon

    Kant A Biography eBook ✓ Kant A ePUB ï kant free, biography book, Kant A kindle, Kant A Biography EpubMy reading of this book was sustained primarily by the fact that it is about Kant It's not a hard going book but it is not a compelling narrative either Kant is surely now a robust character in my mind than he was prior to reading Kuehn's biography but he remains nonetheless a person of whom I have only shadowy knowledge Although Kuehn makes intermittent attempts to reveal Kant the human being the book is like viewing Kant at a distance through smoked glass This might be a consequence of the dirth of primary sources but I am dubious about that because Kuehn seems to actively avoid posing

    Kant A Biography eBook ✓ Kant A ePUB ï kant free, biography book, Kant A kindle, Kant A Biography EpubWith the right publicity this would be the Ellmann's Joyce of philosophical biography As it stands it is far obscure which works out well for me not unlike the first year I arrived in San Francisco and remarked You know from what is the general concensus I couldn't help but assume everyone here was a drug addiction andor homosexual to which my fellow drug free heterosexual friend replied It's better that way It keeps all of the idiots out Now I cannot say as much for the Bay Area today in terms of idiocy nor is anyone a lesser being for being unfamiliar with Kuehn's Kant I am perplexed though not perplexed enough to say another word concerning this prolegomena to any future philosophical biography
