Part of the Studies in German Idealism book series (SIGI, volume 20)


Tom Rockmore thinks my reading of Kant depends on my reaction to Henry Allison’s interpretation. That is an overstatement of how centrally Allison figures in what I have written about Kant. But it is true that I found an element in Allison’s account of transcendental idealism useful. I cited it to encapsulate something I anyway wanted to say about a conception I took Kant to be working towards, in a tendency I interpreted Hegel as bringing to completion.
