Reviews

"[An] excellent new biography. Manfred Kuehn's new book, with its scrupulous combination of archival accuracy and philosophical senstivity, therefore sets an entirely new standard, opening up fresh approaches not only to Kant's life but also to the meaning of his work. Kuehn's fine and rather touching biography reveals a philosophical life lived with pathos, courage, and good humor, as well as a terrible and merciless intelligence." Lingua Franca
"This is an excellent book..." Review of Metaphysics
"The best biography of Kant now available." Philosophy in Review
"The best biography in English, and indeed in any language." J.B. Schneewind, author of The Invention of Autonomy
"This book bills itself as 'the first full-length biography of Kant in over fifty years, ' but it is more than that... Kuehn has produced a work of the highest quality." Library Journal
"In this first full-length biography in English, Manfred Kuehn's prodigious research dispels the idea of Kant as a colorless, and, by interveaving his life and thought, gives us a Kant we have never known before." Washington Post Book World
"This book bills itself as "the first full-length biography of Kant in over fifty years," but it is more than that... the present book excels...Kuehn has produced a work of the highest quality...For all academic collections and larger public libraries." Library Journal
"This book is ideally suited for a reader who already has some acquaintance with Kant's major ideas and wants a biographical, social and intellectual context in which to understand them more deeply. It is an impressive work with both historical and philosophical dimensions." Catholic Library World
