About this book


The role and place of transcendental psychology in Kant's Critique of Pure Reason has been a source of some contention. The acceptance of the notion of transcendental psychology in recent years has been in connection to functionalist views of the mind which has detracted from its metaphysical significance. This work presents a detailed argument for restoring transcendental psychology to a central place in the interpretation of Kant's Analytic, in the process providing a detailed response to more 'austere' analytic readings.

Bibliographic information


'Banham's book makes an ideal guide to the 'Critique of Pure Reason'...His combination of philological sensitivity and argumentative rigour makes him one of the most stimulating and challenging of recent writers on Kant. He has an unrivalled ability to make Kant our contemporary and to show that the critical philosophy still contains untapped resources and even surprises.' - Howard Caygill, Professor of Cultural History, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK
