About the Book

This book highlights Kant's fundamental contrast between the mechanistic and dynamical conceptions of matter, which is central to his views about the foundations of physics, and is best understood in terms of the contrast between objects of sensibility and things in themselves.

Reviews

"[Warren has] produced a gem of a dissertation, combining textual sensitivity with philosophical subtlety in pursuing connections between several important issues in Kant's natural philosophy and metaphysics." -- Eric Watson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
