Kant famously said there are four basic questions: What can I know? What ought I to do? What can I hope? What is the human being? This course looks at Kantís answers to these questions, taking in his metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, philosophy of religion and political philosophy. We will look at all three of his Critiques, as well as other important works. Kant is the central figure in modern European philosophy - and this course aims to show why!
Students will be provided with a course pack containing the main extracts from Kant's texts to be considered in the course. Links to electronic texts will also be provided.
