Never will the 'I love it/ I like it/ It's okay...' rating system be less helpful than with this book. But it is okay as a helping hand for Kant's first Critique. Where the ideas are most compelling, this book is clearest; where the ideas are the least compelling, this book is dense and nonsensical (hello, tables of judgment/concepts/principles). Anyway, it's silly to rate this book. This edition, on the other hand, is great: it has a fantastic introduction, useful selections from the first critique, and the early reviews of the CPR that Kant responds to in the appendix to the Prolegomena. The translation could be smoother, but then, Kant could have been smoother too.

It sucks, but I think the best track is to read the CPR first, and then this, or maybe this, then CPR, then this again. I can't really see that you'd get much out of the Prolegomena alone. ( )

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. ( )

Nnnnnguh, Kant. This is probably the best Kant to read, if only because it's almost deciperable. Kant had some okay ideas -- some -- but he was such a terrible writer that they almost just went to waste entirely. ( )

this is the abrigded version of pure reason. as said in my review of groundwork of the metaphysics of morals kant is a hard read but worth while read ( )

The Critique of Pure Reason for Dummies, Kant's popularization of his own famously indecipherable work of metaphysics is itself at the border of decipherability, but only just, and it will reward those with some background in philosophy who are willing to make the slog. I'm not one—I gave up after the first couple of chapters—but I am convinced that it would be possible to make it all the way through.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
If it becomes desirable to present any cognition as science, it will be necessary first to determine exactly its differentia, which no other science has in common with it and which constitutes its peculiarity; otherwise the boundaries of all sciences become confused, and none of them can be treated thoroughly according to its nature.
