Kant is arguably the most influential modern philosopher, but also one of the most difficult. Roger Scruton tackles his exceptionally complex subject with a strong hand, exploring the background to Kant's work and showing why the Critique of Pure Reason has proved so enduring.
Roger Scruton's publications include Spinoza in the Past Masters series, Art And Imagination, (1974), The Aesthetics of Architecture (1979), The Aesthetic Understanding (1983), An Intelligent Persons Guide To Philosophy (1996), and The Aesthetics Of Music (1997).

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition Roger Scruton faced perhaps the most intractable task of all in giving an elementary account of Kant's philosophy ... but he does it extremely elegantly and neatly.'Listener
