Kant's legacy : essays in honor of Lewis White Beck( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late Lewis White Beck, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester, was one of the world's leading Kant scholars. Beck considered the most significant element of Kant's rich, complex, and controversial legacy to be the ultimate philosophical question: "What is Man?" Kant's answer that humans are creators is ambiguous. On the one hand, it dignifies humans by elevating them above blind mechanical forces of nature. But it also imposes difficult burdens, including the task of providing a unitary worldview and an immanently grounded system of values and norms. The contributors to this volume, under Beck's influence, concur that this theme is of central importance for the proper understanding and evaluation of Kant's legacy. The papers address issues concerning creativity in all aspects of human experience from knowledge of the external world to self-knowledge, from moral to religious dilemmas, from judgments of taste to the art of living with a constant awareness of the limitations as well as the possibilities of such creativity

The critique of pure reason by Immanuel Kant( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why this critique is called simply Critique of Practical Reason and not Critique of Pure Practical Reason, though the parallelism between it and the critique of speculative reason seems to demand the latter title, will be sufficiently shown in the treatise itself. Its task is merely to show that there is a pure practical reason, and, in order to do this, it critically examines reason's entire practical faculty. If it succeeds in this task, there is no need to examine the pure faculty itself to see whether it, like speculative reason, presumptuously overreaches itself. For if pure reason is actually practical, it will show its reality and that of its concepts in actions, and all disputations which aim to prove its impossibility will be in vain
