Spring 2014 not offered
In his groundbreaking book, CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON, Immanuel Kant sets himself the task of delineating the boundaries of human knowledge. Can we know whether God exists, or whether we are truly free? Can we be certain that our scientific laws capture the way nature is? And can we even trust that our most ordinary perceptions are not mere illusions? Maneuvering between the danger of skepticism and the dogmatism of religion and traditional metaphysics, Kant formulates a theory of knowledge that will set the agenda for all modern philosophy to follow.
