About the Authors
  • Immanuel Kant was actively concerned with issues in the philosophy of natural science throughout his career. The Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science presents his most mature reflections on these themes in the context of both his critical philosophy, presented in the Critique of Pure Reason, and the natural science of his time. This volume features a new translation which is especially clear and accurate, together with an historical and philosophical introduction and a guide to further reading.

    • New translation is clear and accurate
    • Friedman an acknowledged expert on Kant's philosophy of science
    • Helpful ancillary materials: glossary, guide to further reading etc.
