    Λυγίζει ο εγκέφαλος. Κάθε λέξη τοποθετείται με μαθηματική ακρίβεια στην πρόταση. Κάθε έννοια μετατρέπεται σε αριθμό. Σταματάς να διαβάζεις ένα απλό κείμενο. Διαβάζεις μαθηματικές σχέσεις σε μορφή κειμένου. Η μαθηματική του συνοχή απαιτεί ολόκληρη την προσοχή σου. Η γλώσσα σαν εργαλείο παύει να εξυπηρετεί τον άνθρωπο. Εξυπηρετεί την αλήθεια και τη ΛΟΓΙΚΗ. Γίνεται η ΛΟΓΙΚΗ. Γίνεται η συσκευή εξόδου της μαθηματικής αλήθειας που χαρακτηρίζει το σύμπαν. Αυτήν τη ΛΟΓΙΚΗ ο άνθρωπος πρέπει να τη δαμάσει Λυγίζει ο εγκέφαλος.

Έχω συναντήσει πολλά αποσπάσματα από το έργο του όλα αυτά τα χρόνια, αλλά η εμπειρία να διαβάζεις ολόκληρη τη ροή της σκέψης ενός τόσο Μεγάλου Εγκεφάλου δεν περιγράφεται. ΑΓΑΠΩ.

    Kant authorized, but did not write, this book towards the end of his life, giving the job to a former student. Basically, it is a textbook for logic classes, not an exposition of Kant's Critical programme. Almost half of this edition is devoted to an introduction by the translators and to critical apparati. For me, The Logic is a reminder of Dartmouth and of Charles Stone, a former U.T.S. colleague who had graduated to become a librarian at the College.

For me, The Logic is a reminder of Dartmouth and of Charles Stone, a former U.T.S. colleague who had graduated to become a librarian at the College. Being poor myself, he was kind enough to invite me up to Hanover, NH several times--a cheap vacation from Manhattan. Since Charles would work days, I would hang out at this fantastic cafe near campus which served both coffee (for afternoons) and beer (for evenings after a day of reading, but sometimes alternated with cups of coffee) and seemed to be run by a German woman who had, appropriately enough, a German shepherd with free run of the place.

    A collection of Kant's lectures on Logic, several of which being translated into English for the first time. This edition contains: the Bloomberg Logic, the Vienna Logic, the Hechsel Logic, the Dohna-Wundlacken Logic and the Jäsche Logic. All but the Jäsche Logic are compiled from student notes taken during Kant's lectures, so we should not rely on them too greatly or trust their accuracy overmuch.

All but the Jäsche Logic are compiled from student notes taken during Kant's lectures, so we should not rely on them too greatly or trust their accuracy overmuch. The Jäsche Logic, however, was published during Kant's lifetime with his blessing, although he did not oversee its editing process. This makes it much more useful than the other Logics. It contains some fascinating, although obscure, writings on the Kantian notion of conceptual form. Particularly illuminating is that it is the first place (I have found) that Kant gives an explicit definition of discursive conceptual marks, although this definition is also complicated, dense and difficult to parse at best. Regardless, on my reading, we find the analytic activity of the discursive intellect present even at the most fundamental levels of sub-concept representation, with marks serving as indicating the possibility of the whole representation and thus grounding cognition of that representation entirely.

    This little book is a lot of fun. If you're familiar with Kant's Critique's you'll find this to be largely review. I firmly recommend this book to those for whom logic - as a field of study - makes little sense. The major benefit of the text is the fact that it is presented in a substantially more approachable lexicon than most Kantian works. While it is, perhaps, not as systematically linear as Kant's writing; the text has a gentle flowing structure which links each section in a way that should This little book is a lot of fun. If you're familiar with Kant's Critique's you'll find this to be largely review. I firmly recommend this book to those for whom logic - as a field of study - makes little sense. The major benefit of the text is the fact that it is presented in a substantially more approachable lexicon than most Kantian works. While it is, perhaps, not as systematically linear as Kant's writing; the text has a gentle flowing structure which links each section in a way that should appear familiar and clear to the average student. Of course the comical consequence of a Kantian text absent the systematic style of Kant himself is a work that requires a 100-page translator's introduction. But again, the sections are so short and sweet (certainly in General Doctrine of Elements), that an exhaustive account of each subject discussed would detract from the charm of the text. On a personal level, I believe the book to be a relaxed introduction to the underlying knowledge behind philosophical logic - it's basically an anti-anxiety pill for those who find logic daunting or lacking in context. To those less acquainted with logic as a field or confused by the matrix of logical rules, this text provides some explanation as to WHY propositional logic, for instance, works the way it does. It is theory over practice - and ideal for those comfortable with such an exchange. This is, in a very opaque sense, an introduction for the metaphysician, historian, or phenomenologist rather than those blessed with a mathematical mind. This is a book by a student for a student. The result is a patient approach to a wonderful area of Kant's thought. Enjoy.

    Half of this book is a long introduction by the translators. I have not read this part, so my brief review concerns the second part, Kant's book per se. Actually, it was edited by one of his students, based on lectures by Kant. As such, it makes a nice set of introductory notes to the subjective of Logic, as formulated by Kant, somewhat as a "manual". It is interesting by itself and I believe of great value to philosophy students. I would not recommend it for the general reader though, except if Half of this book is a long introduction by the translators.

I would not recommend it for the general reader though, except if he/she is willing to put some effort on learning the concepts, and at the same time framing them adequately in historical context. That requires some previous introduction to Kant's philosophy and I am not sure this is the best book to start with.

    I didn't find much of value here, other than pure historical interest. Reads as kind of a "this is how Kant would have presented things to a far less capable student". Compared to something like Quine's _Methods of Logic_ this is just..well, old and dusty. I didn't find much of value here, other than pure historical interest.
