Section Information for Fall 2021

Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason marks both the culmination of early modern philosophy and the foundation of much that has come since. In this course we’ll be giving close attention to some of the most important sections of the Critique, as well as to relevant secondary literature.  In particular, we will look at a recent debate about whether, for Kant, our cognition has nonconceptual content—whether, that is, we can be aware of particulars that are not conceptually determined.
