This intellectual biography of Immanuel Kant's early years-- from 1746 when he wrote his first book, to 1766 when he lost his faith in metaphysics --makes an outstanding contribution to Kant scholarship. Schonfeld meticulously examines most of Kant's early works, summarizes their content, andexhibits their shortcomings and strengths. He places the early theories in their historical context and describes the scientific discoveries and philosophical innovations that distinguish Kant's pre-critical works. Schonfeld argues that these works were all aspects of a single project carried out byKant to reconcile metaphysical and scientific perspectives and combine them into a coherent model of nature.

Editorial Reviews

"Schonfeld's grasp of the history of science is impressive, and his reconstructions of the young Kant's historical context are meticulous and instructive. By persuasively illustrating the inner logic of Kant's early development, Schonfeld's clear, well-organized, and copiously annotated bookmakes an important contribution to Kant scholarship."--The Review of Metaphysics
