Dr Edward Kanterian, Reader in Department of Philosophy, has had his latest monograph 'Kant, God and metaphysics: the secret thorn' (Abingdon, Routledge, 2017) reviewed by The British Journal for the History of Philosophy.

‘In Kant, God and Metaphysics: The Secret Thorn, [Edward Kanterian] examines Kant's early work, up to around 1770, to demonstrate that Kant was firmly embedded in the eighteenth century, and especially in the German, broadly Protestant, philosophy of that age” the review states, “Kanterian challenges the common assumption that Kant is closer to us than to his own age’.

Todd Mei, Head of the Department of Philosophy, writes: ‘I have always had the suspicion that the intriguing yet problematic role of God in Kant’s philosophy is tied up with how Kant’s metaphysics can be understood as either dualistic or not. Edward’s book is a hugely significant achievement in the area of Kant scholarship, and what I find most impressive is his ability to engage with both the analytic and continental traditions of philosophy. What more could you ask for when investigating the thought of a monumental figure in the history of philosophy?’
