In this volume, Peter Kreeft explains how Immanuel Kant was both a philosopher about how we know things (epistemology) and a philosopher of right and wrong (ethics). Kant’s philosophy of knowing truly was a “Copernican revolution in philosophy,” and his ethics were intended to lay a rational foundation for morality. If he had written only on either topic, he would still be among the most important and influential of the modern philosophers. The combination of the two, though, makes for a formidable thinker, one it would take a figure such as the father of philosophy, the relentless Socrates, to confront. The conversation between the two great minds lays out the key issues. Kreeft’s Socrates reflects what the historical philosopher would likely have made of Kant’s ideas, while also recognizing the genius of Kant. The result is a helpful, highly readable, even amusing dialogue that makes the thought of these two giants easily accessible.
