not yet rated|write a review
Wayne Waxman here presents an ambitious and comprehensive attempt to link the philosophers of what are known as the British Empiricists--Locke, Berkeley, and Hume--to the philosophy of German philosopher Immanuel Kant. Much has been written about all these thinkers, who are among the mostinfluential figures in the Western tradition. Waxman argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, Kant is actually the culmination of the British empiricist program and that he shares their methodological assumptions and basic convictions about human thought and knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Waxman is not the first to connect Kant closely with Locke, Berkeley and Hume. But he is certainly the first to dissect the connections in fine detail, and to identify one crucial continuity of method. Rarely have I read such a fine commentary on the great and good. Certainly it is anexcellent piece of work and it will be a fascinating read for anyone interested in the history of philosophy.--T. E. Wilkerson, Mind
