Topic: Kant's First Critique
Immanuel Kant saw human reason as inevitably driven to ask questions
it is unable to answer. In his attempt to understand this problematic
situation, Kantís Critique of Pure Reason remade modern philosophy by
drawing the line between what we can and cannot know, both justifying
our limited knowledge against skeptical challenges and exposing the
errors of our attempts to extend our knowledge beyond its proper
boundaries. This course will give us a look at Kantís many-sided and
ambitious philosophical project.
This class open to majors only and is worth 6 credit hours. The
