Lecture series examining Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason delivered by Professor Dan Robinson.
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. Lectures are intended to clarify the major claims advanced by Kant in this connection, and to test the arguments he adduces in their support.
1. Just what is Kant’s ‘project’?
2. The Broader Philosophical context
3. Space, time and the ‘Analogies of Experiences’
4. How are a priori synthetic judgements possible?
5. Idealisms and their refutations
6. Concepts, judgement and the transcendental deduction of the categories
7. The ‘self’ and the synthetic unity of apperception
8. The discipline of reason: The paralogisms and antimonies of pure reason
Speaker: Professor Dan Robinson
