One thought on “Prolegomena zu einer jeden künftigen Metaphysik

  1. Szplug

    My object is to persuade all those who think metaphysics worth studying that it is absolutely necessary to pause a moment and, disregarding all that has been done, to propose first the preliminary question, Whether such a thing as metaphysics be at all possible If it is a science, how does it happen that it cannot, like other sciences, obtain universal and permanent recognition If not, how can it maintain its pretensions, and keep the human understanding in suspense with hopes never ceasing, yet [...]

    Kant necessitated a paradigm shift in philosophy with the Prolegomena Prior to Kant, philosophy sought to discover and ask questions about an objective world Kant showed that it made no sense to talk about the world without also talking about a subject through whom it filtered The forms of human intuition, and our own conceptual framework, rightfully entered philosophy For anyone interested in the history of the discipline, this little text as unnecessarily difficult as it can sometimes be is a [...]

    This is what I read on lazy Sunday afternoons.A very concise and almost readable work by Kant, summarizing and clarifying some of the monstrous and intricately detailed trails of thinking from his masterwork, The Critique of Pure Reason Lays out the groundwork for the philosophy of science, logic, and metaphysics.

    I d started but not finished this supplementary polemic to the Critique of Pure Reason while working on my seminary thesis at the Hungarian Pastry Shop on 110th and Cathedral in New York City Although some had recommended it as an easy approach to the critical project, time was short and I wanted to get through the three Critiques and all the Kant texts either cited by C.G Jung or contained in his library at the time of his death first I did so, then got back to this after graduation It served a [...]

    98% of all philosophers spend their professional lives bullshitting What most people fail to appreciate about Kant is that he actually said things specific enough that they turned out to be wrong Einstein was able to refute his claims about the nature of time and space and show they were incorrect How many other philosophers can say as much Go Kant

  6. Max Jackson

    Philosophers usually think of their discipline as one which discusses perennial, eternal problems problems which arise as soon as one reflects Thus Richard Rorty begins his tremendous masterpiece Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature , which is not the book I m reviewing here 1 He Rorty goes on to critique demolish this idea for 400 or so pages, suggesting in my mangled paraphrase that instead we should think of philosophers and, really, people in general as creating particular technical vocabular [...]

    As Kant modestly put it, no one had ever thought that the conditions for our experience could be ascertained a priori what an exciting premise And so comes this book, ostensibly for the layman but in reality intended for lazy academics in the backwoods of Konigsberg now Kaliningrad who couldn t plough through the Critique without misunderstanding it, which is mostly a polemic answering four questions that are supposed to get us riled up for a first hand encounter with modern philosophy s most ea [...]

    Kant was a pretty smart guy and maybe I m not so smart, but I can t understand what he thought he accomplished with the Prolegomena Kant s stated purpose was to refute Hume, who had cast doubt on the concept of causation by pointing out that we only observe one event following another and have no reason to conclude that the first caused the second Kant s solution is posit that all sensory information is subjective Even so basic information as the spatial and temporal orientation of objects and e [...]

    Reading Kant is pretty interesting The Prolegomena is doubtless a masterful work Kant found a totally novel way of reconciling empirical, scientific concepts with an idealistic worldview Granted, my own perspectives are pretty far from the transcendental idealist system that he proposes, but I have massive appreciation for his insights recognizing the lens quality of space and time, for instance.I should note that I don t, for a minute, buy transcendental idealism He s willing to chalk a lot up [...]

  10. Adam

    I pretty much concur with the consensus that Kant was a spectacularly shitty writer, if an important and occasionally good philosopher, but this particular book isn t as bad as reading his other stuff, and pretty succinctly covers some very important aspects of Kant s philosophy, and what it has unfortunately spawned since.

    If it metaphysics is a science, how does it happen that it cannot, like other sciences, obtain universal and permanent recognition pg 1, pgh 256 Human reason so delights in construction that it has several times built up a tower and then razed it to examine the nature of the foundation It is never too late to become reasonable and wise but if the insight comes late, there is always difficulty in starting the change pg 2, pgh 256 For inasmuch as our judgment cannot be corrected by anything outsi [...]

    Okay, I have what I d like to call the Prolegomena Paradox as to what to read first, the Prolegomena which is meant to explain the Critique, or read the Critique, then the Prolegomena, and maybe the Critique once again See the problem Anyway, I have made the choice of reading this first, of course without full comprehension of the Critique, I am a bit puzzled and confused.One of the simple points in the book is the assertion that metaphysics cannot be empirical For the cognition, as Kant puts it [...]

    Having published his Critique of Pure Reason in 1781, Kant got the impression he was being grossly misunderstood if you can believe it by his contemporaries To clear up any misunderstandings anyone may have, he wrote the Prolegomena as a summary introduction to his first Critique.I admit that I actually enjoy reading Kant If anything, he is thorough, which means that if you don t grasp an idea the first time around you won t have to wait long for him to repeat it Kant s writing is very methodica [...]

  14. Scott

    I read large portions of this work slightly drunk, and that either assisted my understanding or had no effect It s definitely better taken in as a whole rather than scrutinized sentence by sentence The man repeats himself enough that things will start coming together if you just press on Don t ask me to explain anything It makes sense in my head, but I can t make it come out my mouth.

  15. Jake

    If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet, and so on then I have no need to exert myself I have no need to think, if only I can pay others will take care of that disagreeable business for me Immanuel Kant in What is EnlightenmentThere s a lot of truth in this and it s a good summary of how Kant looks at the world This isn t to say it isn t without problems, which come to a head in Prolegomena Humans are much less rational than he [...]

  16. Ian

    Immanuel Kant was undoubtedly the most important figure in philosophy after Aristotle To rescue our notion of causality from the seemingly devastating critique of Hume, he effected what he called his Copernican revolution in philosophy rather than ideas or essences coming into our intellect from the outside world, it is rather we who bring concepts like space and time and impose them upon our phenomenal world of experiences It is much easier to scoff at argumentative moves like this than it is t [...]

    Un buen intento kantiano para dar a entender explicar su Cr tica de la Raz n Pura A decir verdad, es igual de compleja s lo que sintetizada, esto es, resumida Recomendada para leer despu s de la Cr tica de la Raz n Pura y abarcar m s generalmente lo que se dispersa en el desarrollo de la obra filos fica Es un libro no tan extenso, tal vez al igual que Cr tica de la Raz n Pr ctica Kant no deja abajo su capacidad sobria de ligar todo un sistema sin dejar una parte fuera de otra Lo recomiendo si qu [...]

    A lot of the time, when you re reading a philosophical work, you understand what they want to argue for, but then you kind of get lost when you read the argument Kant is unique, in that most of the time, you don t know what he s actually arguing for in the first place Once you get past that roadblock, it s a pretty good book, but you just have to read it a few times to figure out what he s actually talking about.

  19. Joe Sabet

    I read the 1961 Open Court Classics version It was pretty good, but I wish I first read the commentary before Kant because Carus is pretty helpful and even defines a lot of terms Good version.

  20. Pierre Franckx

    A good read for people who don t feel like reading die Kritik itself Or as a good introduction or preperation as Kant has meant this prolegomena himself I m not going to judge the ideas defended in this book, but one can only sympetize with the author, trying to solve some fundamental philosophical questions or being convinced he did , when you know what intellectually insincere people, already during his lifetime, did to philosophy.

  21. Rowland Pasaribu

    Kant s philosophy has been called a synthesis of rationalism and empiricism From rationalism he takes the idea that we can have a priori knowledge of significant truths, but rejects the idea that we can have a priori metaphysical knowledge about the nature of things in themselves, God, or the soul From empiricism he takes the idea that knowledge is essentially knowledge of experience, but rejects the idea that we cannot learn any necessary truths about experience, and in doing so he rejects Hume [...]

    reading Kant s Prolegomena was an incredible experience for me I haven t yet read his Critique of Pure Understanding which the Prolegomena summarizes , but after reading the Prolegomena, I am anxious to read the Critique I had read summaries of Kant s epistemology before, but this was my first experience reading Kant himself His solution to Hume s problem of causation is absolutely brilliant and I feel like my mind is on fire All week, while reading it, I have been thinking about the Kant s clai [...]
