Kant and Kantianism
PHIL 312
Fall 2006 not offered

A close examination of the Transcendental Aesthetic and the Transcendental Analytic of the Critique of Pure Reason, with special attention to the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories. There will also be some consideration of "Kantian" philosophers whose views emerged out of attempts to develop a Kantian position that is safe from the criticisms that are sometimes thought to be fatal to Kant's own view. The latter include the logical positivists (Carnap, Schlick), some self-styled Hegelians (Sellars, Brandom) and some who have recently tried to marry transcendental arguments and naturalism (Strawson, McDowell).
