Hegel’s Critique of Kant by Sally Sedgwick

Hegel’s Critique of Kant: From Dichotomy to Identity by Sally Sedgwick
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.2 MB
Overview: Sally Sedgwick presents a fresh account of Hegel’s critique of Kant’s theoretical philosophy. She argues that Hegel offers a compelling critique of and alternative to the conception of cognition that Kant defended in his "Critical" period.
