We are pleased to give notice of the release of the volume Kant’s Reform of Metaphysics:The Critique of Pure Reason Reconsidered by Karin de Boer (Cambridge University Press, 2020).

From the publisher’s website:

Scholarly debates on the Critique of Pure Reason have largely been shaped by epistemological questions. Challenging this prevailing trend, Kant’s Reform of Metaphysics is the first book-length study to interpret Kant’s Critique in view of his efforts to turn Christian Wolff’s highly influential metaphysics into a science. Karin de Boer situates Kant’s pivotal work in the context of eighteenth-century German philosophy, traces the development of Kant’s conception of critique, and offers fresh and in-depth analyses of key parts of the Critique of Pure Reason, including the Transcendental Deduction, the Schematism Chapter, the Appendix to the Transcendental Analytic, and the Architectonic. The book not only brings out the coherence of Kant’s project, but also reconstructs the outline of the ‘system of pure reason’ for which the Critique was to pave the way, but that never saw the light.
