Full text not available from this repository.


Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason is both one of the most rewarding of all philosophical works, and one of the most difficult. Norman Kemp Smith's translation is immensely valuable, not simply because he rendered Kant's language into readable English, but also because his own extensive understanding of the Critique made him acutely aware of the pitfalls of translation. The text followed is that of the second edition of 1787, and a translation is also given of all first-edition passages which in the second edition have been either altered or omitted. For this reissue of Norman Kemp Smith's classic translation, renowned Kant scholar Gary Banham has contributed a unique, extensive bibliography of secondary resources. Combined with Howard Caygill's context-setting introduction and guide to further reading, this reissue provides the definitive edition of this cornerstone of Western intellectual history.
