Immanuel Kant wrote extensively on all major topics of intellectual interest. In terms of the publication of major texts his most prolific period was 1781 to 1790. In the domains of epistemology and metaphysics he published the Critique of Pure Reason in 1781. In the domain of ethics he published the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals in 1785 and the Critique of Practical Reason in 1788. In the domain of aesthetics he presented his theory in 1790 in the form of the Critique of Judgment. As a form of shorthand the three Critiques are known as the First, Second, and Third, respectively. Each of the Critiques is concerned with judgement: judgements of reason, moral judgements, and aesthetic judgements. These podcasts were recorded by Dr Susan Stuart in 2008.

Excellent Series

I have gone through this series twice now, and have profited greatly from it. As it happens, I was in a secondhand book store between my two run-throughs of this series, and stumbled upon Norman Kemp Smith’s translation of Immanuel Kant—this is the gold standard of translation for the Critique of Pure Reason. To my happy surprise, I realized that my edition is the same that Dr. Susan Stuart is using for her class, and am now able to follow along with all of her page references exactly.

This, however, brings me to a significant point: This is not exactly a series for the casual listener. This is a careful walkthrough of some of the most impenetrable, philosophical prose ever written. If you don’t have the book, or have not read the Critique, I’m not sure how much this will benefit you. This podcast was a lecture series being delivered to a room of philosophy students, and is not aimed at someone unfamiliar with basic philosophical concepts.

All in all, I find this series’s to be absolutely brilliant, and I am beyond grateful that the University of Glasgow has offered this to the public. This is exactly what I have been looking for, and I almost feel like I am a part of a classroom environment when I listen to this. Brilliant stuff.

Great lectures, terrible recordings

Really lively and helpful lectures by a brilliant and skilled teacher, however the audio cuts out with loud pops and large sections of the lectures are missing in some cases which is infuriating. Why not re record them instead of posting seriously flawed recordings?
