This quantity presents a strong replacement to all present interpretations of the Opus Postumum, arguing that Kant’s transition undertaking is healthier visible because the post-Critical end result of his serious philosophy. corridor rigorously examines the deep connections among the Opus Postumum and the view Kant develops within the Critique of natural Reason, to indicate that appropriately knowing the post-Critical Kant will considerably revise our view of Kant’s serious period.
