"The Fate of Reason" is the first general history devoted to the period between Kant and Fichte, one of the most revolutionary and fertile in modern philosophy. The philosophers of this time broke with the two central tenets of the modem Cartesian tradition: the authority of reason and the primacy of epistemology. They also witnessed the decline of the Aufkldrung, the completion of Kant's philosophy, and the beginnings of post-Kantian idealism.

Thanks to Beiser we can newly appreciate the influence of Kant's critics on the development of his philosophy. Beiser brings the controversies, and the personalities who engaged in them, to life and tells a story that has uncanny parallels with the debates of the present.

Review: The Fate of Reason: German Philosophy from Kant to Fichte

Gebruikersrecensie  - Andrew - Goodreads

Excellent in showing how German philosophers came to doubt the Enlightenment's guiding principle - the autonomous authority of reason - and how their attempts to salvage it served as a starting point for nineteenth-century German idealism. Volledige review lezen
