Credits: 4

This seminar is designed to provide a general survey of the main motivations, arguments and achievements of Kant’s philosophy (specifically Kant’s three Critiques): his theoretical philosophy (e.g., Kant’s account of causality and space and time; the destruction of metaphysical thinking), practical philosophy (e.g., the account of freedom and the categorical imperative); and aesthetics (e.g. Kant’s account of the beautiful and the sublime). In considering these theoretical, practical and aesthetic dimensions of Kant’s thinking special emphasis would be put on their relation to the philosophy and politics of the Enlightenment.
