The Powers of Pure Reason: Kant and the Idea of Cosmic Philosophy

Alfredo Ferrarin

Abstract

The book is a full-fledged examination of Kant on reason. Reason is about a comprehensive vision that understands itself (from sciences and cognitions to action to all objects of its legislation) in relation to its ends. A rigorous analysis of the different meanings of key concepts throughout Kant’s works, such as ideas, concepts, intuition, the a priori, mathematics, metaphysics and critical philosophy, and categories and judgment, forms the heart of this book.

Keywords: a priori synthesis, unity of reason, reason’s ends, ideas, concepts, intuition, cosmic philosophy, knowledge, science, wisdom
