Custom and reason in Hume a Kantian reading of the first book of the Treatise by Henry E Allison( )
19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry Allison examines the central tenets of Hume's epistemology and cognitive psychology, as contained in the Treatise of Human Nature. Allison takes a distinctive two-level approach. On the one hand, he considers Hume's thought in its own terms and historical context. So considered, Hume is viewed as a naturalist, whose project in the first three parts of the first book of the Treatise is to provide an account of the operation of the understanding in whichreason is subordinated to custom and other non-rational propensities. Scepticism arises in the fourth part as a form of metascepticism, di
Idealism and freedom : essays on Kant's theoretical and practical philosophy by Henry E Allison( Book )
15 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Henry E. Allison is one of the foremost interpreters of the philosophy of Kant. This new volume collects all his recent essays on Kant's theoretical and practical philosophy. All the essays postdate Allison's two major books on Kant (Kant's Transcendental Idealism, 1983, and Kant's Theory of Freedom, 1990), and together they constitute an attempt to respond to critics and to clarify, develop and apply some of the central theses of those books. One is published here for the first time." "Special features of the collection are: a detailed defense of the author's interpretation of transcendental idealism; a consideration of the Transcendental Deduction and some other recent interpretations thereof; further elaborations of the tensions between various aspects of Kant's conception of freedom and of the complex role of this conception within Kant's moral philosophy." "This volume brings together a major body of recent Kant interpretation by one of its leading exponents. It will be of special interest to both scholars and graduate students."--BOOK JACKET
Kant's Groundwork for the metaphysics of morals : a commentary by Henry E Allison( Book )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Henry E. Allison presents a comprehensive commentary on Kant's 'Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals' (1785). It differs from most recent commentaries in paying special attention to the structure of the work, the historical context in which it was written, and the views to which Kant was responding. Allison argues thast, despite its relative brevity, the 'Groundwork' is the single moset important work in modern moral philosophy and that its significance lies mainly in two closely related factors. The first is that it is here that Kent first articulates his revolutionary principle of the autonomy of the will, that is, the paradoxical thesis that moral requirements (duties) are self-imposed and that it is only in virtue of this that they can be unconditionally binding. The second is that for Kant all other moral theories are united by the assumption that the ground of moral requirements must be located in some object of the will (the good) rather than the will itself, which Kant terms heteronomy. Accordingly, what from the standpoint of previous moral theories was seen as a fundamental conflict between various views of the good is reconceived by Kant as a family quarrel between various views of hereronomy, none of which are capable of accounting for the unconditionally binding nature of morality. Allison goes on to argue that Kant expresses this incapacity by claiming that the various forms of heteronomy unavoidably reduce the categorical to a merely hypothetical imperative"--Publisher's description, back cover
Essays on Kant by Henry E Allison( Book )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume comprises seventeen essays by Henry E. Allison, one of the world's leading Kant scholars. They cover virtually the full spectrum of Allison's work on Kant, ranging from his epistemology, metaphysics, and moral theory to his views on teleology, political philosophy, the philosophy of history, and the philosophy of religion. But most of the essays revolve around three basic themes: the nature of transcendental idealism and its relation to other aspects of Kant's thought; freedom of the will; and the concept of the purposiveness of nature. The first two themes have been prominent in Allison's work on Kant since its inception. The essays on the third theme constitute a major new contribution to the understanding of Kant's 'critical' philosophy; their primary concern is to demonstrate the central place of the third Critique in Kant's thought."--Page 4 of cover

The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Immanuel Kant Theoretical Philosophy after 1781 ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is the first to assemble in historical sequence the writings that Kant published between 1783 and 1796 to popularize, summarize, amplify and defend the doctrines of his masterpiece, the Critique of Pure Reason of 1781. The best known of them, the Prolegomena, is often recommended to beginning students, but the other texts are also vintage Kant and are important sources for a fully-rounded picture of Kant's intellectual development. As with other volumes in the series there are copious linguistic notes and a glossary of key terms. The editorial introductions and explanatory notes shed light on the critical reception accorded Kant by the metaphysicians of his day and on Kant's own efforts to derail his opponents
