Readership: Scholars and advanced students of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century philosophy.
Robert Hanna, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Colorado at Boulder
"Offers an interpretation and defence of Kant's transcendental idealism, neatly dovetailed with an account and critique of analytic philosophy as it developed from Frege to Quine ... provides a sophisticated reconstruction and defence of Kant's conception." - British Journal for the History of Philosophy
"Hanna's book contains some interesting and suggestive discussions of Kant, and its 'cognitive-semantic' reading of transcendental idealism certainly deserves further development." - Australasian Journal of Philosopy
"Hanna sets about rewinding history, to show that the successive objections that Kant
has suffered were ill-conceived and over-hasty, and that Kant can be successfully defended ... Hanna makes his case in a lively and engaging style." - Robert Stern, Times Literary Supplement
"Hanna does well to take up the challenge of showing that the traditional criticisms of Kant ... are based on narrow readings of [his] position, and so are perhaps less strong than generally supposed." - Robert Stern, Times Literary Supplement
"Interesting and provocative ... well worth reading." - Journal of the History of Philosophy
