This course is a study of Kant’s major work on metaphysics and epistemology: the Critique of Pure Reason. The basis for Kant’s justification of science and his rejection of speculative metaphysics will be examined. The course will also examine how the German Idealists attempted to surmount the limitations that Kant put on knowledge through their attempts to achieve absolute knowledge. This attempt to re-establish speculative metaphysics will be studied through a close reading of one of Hegel’s works.
