Critique of Pure Reason : Unified Edition (with All Variants from the 1781 and 1787 Editions) Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Like Werner Pluhar's distinguished translation of Critique of Judgment (Hackett Publishing Co., 1987), this new rendering of Critique of Pure Reason reflects the elegant achievement of a master translator.

This richly annotated volume offers translations of the complete texts of both the First (A) and Second (B) editions, as well as Kant's own notes.

Extensive editorial notes by Werner Pluhar and James Ellington supply explanatory and terminological comments, translations of Latin and other foreign expressions, variant readings, cross-references to other passages in the text and in other writings of Kant, and references to secondary works.

An extensive bibliography, glossary, and detailed index are included.

Patricia Kitcher's illuminating Introduction provides a roadmap to Kant's abstract and complex argumentation by firmly locating his view in the context of eighteenth-century--and current--attempts to understand the nature of the thinking mind and its ability to comprehend the physical universe.

Review by

The best translation of the best work by my favourite philosopher. I've asked a few Kant scholars, people fluent in both English and German, and they agree that this (the Werner Pluhar translation) is the best English translation of the 1st Critique.
