Walter Benjamin: The Colour of Experience
a reader of benjamin
Caygill's book is largely unilluminating and somewhat misguided. While this work tracks many of the places where Benjamin mentions experience directly (such as Experience, One-way Street, On the Program of Coming Philosophy, Surrealism, The PAris Arcades, etc.) he does not offer insight into how the material analysis would render the theological and political categories as a hightened critical ...
A Kant Dictionary (Blackwell Philosopher Dictionaries)
The 5 stars are for usefulness
This book would be very useful to you if you are taking an undergraduate course in Kantian philosophy.

The 1990s witnessed a return to aesthetics, but one that stressed the independent claims of beauty, in reaction to its perceived suppression by ethical and political imperatives. However, beauty is ...
Critique of Pure Reason
Standard translation of landmark text
Norman Kemp Smith's translation seems to be one of the standard English translations of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. Is it the best? I don't speak German, but it's certainly serviceable. This is a daunting work. It's also a necessary work, inasmuch as any understand of contemporary thought and intellectual history must encounter it. Kant has influenced nearly every major school of thought ...
