It has been argued that Kant's all-consuming efforts to place autonomy at the center of philosophy has had, in the long-run, the unintended effect of leading to the widespread discrediting of philosophy and of undermining the notion of autonomy itself. The result of this "Copernican revolution" has seemed to many commentators the de-centering, if not the self-destruction, of the autonomous self. Ameriks challenges the presumptions that dominate popular approaches to the concept of freedom, and to the interpretation of the relation among the Enlightenment, Kant and post-Kantian thought.

Industry Reviews

"...[a] marvelous and provocative book..." Inquiry "What a pleasure to encounter a book on Kant and the Post-Kantians written with passion as well as erudition." Inquiry Amerik's book is rich, rewarding, and detailed. He combines a mastery of the German and English material...with a fine historical sensibility, a gift for clear writing, and a sharp analytical mind. He also displays a scrupulous intellectual honesty, claiming clear advantages for the 'modest' approach to Kant while noting and discussing the shortcomings of that approach." Ethics
