"A Companion to Kant is the most recent (2010) and by far the best anthology on Kant's works. In it, Graham Bird brings together a remarkable set of essays by prominent scholars in Kant studies ... .Many (if not most) essays ... offer significant contributions to Kant scholarship. The2010Companion to Kant is bound to become indispensible for those who teach and for those who study Kant's philosophy (on both graduate and undergraduate levels). Its contributions remain lucid without watering Kant down; they are comprehensive without staying merely on the surface of the issues they discuss; they contain original work on Kant without skewing the interpretations of Kant toward one-sidedness; and jointly they thematically expand our knowledge and out understanding of Kant's corpus and of Kant's place within the intellectual tradition of Western philosophy." (Metapsychology, June 2010) "This collection is what one hopes for in a 'companion' volume. It contains 33 essays by prominent scholars, all of whom have made substantial contributions to Kant studies. Given the essays' brevity...they manage to achieve surprising depth, and they will help any advanced student to get oriented in Kant's thought." (Choice)
