Including over 500 specially commissioned entries from a team of leading international scholars, this is an essential reference to Kant's thought, writings and continuing influence. Immanuel Kant is widely considered to be the most important and influential thinker of modern Europe and the late Enlightenment. His philosophy is extraordinarily wide-ranging and his influence has been pervasive throughout eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth-century thought, in particular in the work of the German Idealists, and also in both Analytic and Continental philosophy today. This comprehensive and accessible companion to Kant's life and context, philosophical concerns, major works and enduring influence features over 500 specially commissioned entries, written by a team of leading experts in the field, covering every aspect of his philosophy. "The Companion" presents a comprehensive overview of historical and philosophical context in which Kant wrote and the various features, themes and topics apparent in his thought. It also includes synopses of all his major published works and a survey of the key lines of reception and influence. It concludes with a thoroughly comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources. This is an essential reference tool for anyone working in the field of eighteenth-century German philosophy. "The Continuum Companions" series is a major series of single volume companions to key research fields in the humanities aimed at postgraduate students, scholars and libraries. Each companion offers a comprehensive reference resource giving an overview of key topics, research areas, new directions and a manageable guide to beginning or developing research in the field. A distinctive feature of the series is that each companion provides practical guidance on advanced study and research in the field, including research methods and subject-specific resources.
