  2. 2 The Broader Philosophical Context of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason

    Professor Dan Robinson gives the second lecture in this series on Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. The significant advances in physics in the 17th century stood in vivid contrast to the stagnation of traditional metaphysics, but why should metaphysics be conceived as a "science" in the first place?

    It remains a matter of controversy as to just what the central project of the Critique is, but surely one objective is to establish the character and range of objective knowledge in light of the limits of sense and reason. The lectures in this series are intended to clarify the major claims advanced by Kant in this connection, and to test the arguments he adduces in their support.

    This series of talks was given at Oxford.

    A lot of people have the impression that philosophy is, first and foremost, an enterprise in which college professor types read books that no one can understand, then issue a response in the form of more books that no one can understand.
