A Guide to Kant's Psychologism: Via Locke, Berkeley, Hume,

A Guide to Kant's Psychologism: Via Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Wittgenstein This book presents an interpretation of Kant s Critique of Pure Reason as a priori psychologism It groups Kant s philosophy together with those of the British empiricists Locke, Berkeley, and Hume in a single line of psychologistic succession and offers a clear explanation of how Kant s psychologism differs from psychology and idealism The book reconciles Kant s philosophy with subsequent developments in science and mathematics, including post Fregean mathematical logic, non Euclidean geometry, and both relativity and quantum theory It also relates Kant s psychologism to Wittgenstein s later conception of language Finally, the author reveals the ways in which Kant s philosophy dovetails with contemporary scientific theorizing about the natural phenomenon of consciousness and its place in nature This book will be of interest to Kant scholars and historians of philosophy working on the British empiricists
