Notes.- Kant was born in 1724; received his appointment as Professor in the university of his native city, Konigsberg (in far eastern Prussia) in 1770; published the "Critique of Pure Reason" in 1781; published his other principal works between this year and 1793; and died in 1804. The best English translation of the Critique is that by Max Muller. The translation in Bohn's Library, by Meiklejohn, is now regarded as superseded. Wallace's "Kant" in Blackwood's Philosophical Library (Edinburgh and Philadelphia, 1882), Edward Caird's "Critical Philosophy of Immanual Kant" (2d. ed., New York, Macmillan's, 1889, 2 vols.), J. H. Stirling's "Text-Book to Kant" (New York, Putnam's, 1882), and John Watson's "Philosophy of Kant in selections from his writings" (New York, 1888), are the best aids to the study of Kant in English. The German literature of the subject is enormous, embracing some hundreds of works.
