The course will involve a close reading of the Critique of Pure Reason. Among the topics we will analyze in class are the motivations for the Copernican turn; the synthetic-a priori; the nature of space, time and causality; transcendental idealism as the thesis that we know appearances and not things in themselves; Kant's understanding of subjectivity; the transcendental deduction; Kant's claim that rational thinking results in unavoidable metaphysical illusions (e.g. the Antinomies).
