Section Information for Fall 2024

PHIL721: Advanced seminar: Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. In this course, we will be reading the most important bits of the Critique of Pure Reason, as well as some of the salient interpretive literature. We will consider, for example, the question of whether Kant is a conceptualist, whether he believes that cognition requires the application of a concept to an intuition. We will also give close attention to the argument of the all-important Transcendental Deduction of the Categories. Each student will be required to write a research paper on the Critique.
