Critique Review of The Very Idea of a Critique of Pure Reason

Another review of Immanuel Kant: The Very Idea of a Critique of Pure Reason has just been published on the appropriately-titled website Critique. This review (https://virtualcritique.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/michael-olson-on-colin-mcquillans-the-very-idea-of-a-critique-of-pure-reason/) is by Michael J. Olson of Macquarie University in Australia. I really appreciate Michael’s careful (and accurate!) reading of the book, as well as the methodological questions he raises. My response is here: https://virtualcritique.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/reply-to-michael-olson/

NDPR Review of The Very Idea of a Critique of Pure Reason

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews has just published a very interesting review of Immanuel Kant: The Very Idea of a Critique of Pure Reason by Riccardo Pozzo (National Research Council of Italy). Pozzo is one of my main interlocutors in my work on Kant’s logic, so I’m very pleased he called my Kant book an “erudite and seminal work of meticulous scholarship.”
