2015 Winner

Kant’s Construction of Nature
A Reading of the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science

by

Michael Friedman

Michael Friedman's book develops a new and complete reading of Kant's work Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science and reconstructs Kant's main argument clearly and in great detail, explaining its relationship to both Newton's Principia and eighteenth-century scientific thinkers such as Euler and Lambert. By situating Kant's text relative to his pre-critical writings on metaphysics and natural philosophy and, in particular, to the changes Kant made in the second edition of the Critique, Friedman articulates a radically new perspective on the meaning and development of the critical philosophy as a whole.
