The last Kant Dictionary to be published was Eisler's in 1916, since when much has been published on Kant and his thought. In this new lexical survey of Kant's works, Howard Caygill presents Kantian concepts and terminology in terms that will introduce and clarify his ideas for students and general readers alike. The book illustrates the historical nature of philosophical language, showing the origins of particular terms and ideas, how these were transmitted to Kant, and how he altered them in the course of reception. The articles then follow through the subsequent debate up to the present. Howard Caygill clarifies many issues central to current debate by identifying the social and intellectual histories of specific terms.In common with other books in this popular Blackwell series, Caygill offers a contextual essay on Kant and his place in "the age of criticism," as well as an index of other philosophers cited, a bibliography, and a general index.
