Kant and the Foundations of Analytic Philosophy by Robert Hanna

Book Description

Robert Hanna presents a fresh view of the Kantian and analytic traditions that have dominated continental European and Anglo-American philosophy over the last two centuries, and of the relation between them. The rise of analytic philosophy decisively marked the end of the hundred-year dominance of Kant's philosophy in Europe. But Hanna shows that the analytic tradition also emerged from Kant's philosophy in the sense that its members were able to define and legitimate their ideas only by means of an intensive, extended engagement with, and a partial or complete rejection of, the Critical Philosophy. Hanna's book therefore comprises both an interpretative study of Kant's massive and seminal Critique of Pure Reason, and a critical essay on the historical foundations of analytic philosophy from Frege to Quine. Hanna considers Kant's key doctrines in the Critique in the light of their reception and transmission by the leading figures of the analytic tradition-Frege, Moore, Russell, Wittgenstein, Carnap, and Quine. But this is not just a study in the history of philosophy, for out of this emerges Hanna's original approach to two much-contested theories that remain at the heart of contemporary philosophy. Hanna puts forward a new 'cognitive-semantic' interpretation of transcendental idealism, and a vigorous defence of Kant's theory of analytic and synthetic necessary truth. These will make Kant and the Foundations of Analytic Philosophy compelling reading not just for specialists in the history of philosophy, but for all who are interested in these fundamental philosophical issues.

Books By Author Robert Hanna

Cognition, Content, and the A Priori by Robert Hanna Cognition, Content, and the A Priori, Hardback (October 2015)

Robert Hanna works out a unified contemporary Kantian theory of rational human cognition and knowledge, which develops new lines of thought in philosophy of perception. Along the way, he provides original accounts of intentionality, sense perception and perceptual knowledge, the analytic-synthetic distinction, the nature of logic, and the a priori.

Rationality and Logic by Robert Hanna Rationality and Logic, Paperback (February 2009)

An argument that logic is intrinsically psychological and human psychology is intrinsically logical, and that the connection between human rationality and logic is both constitutive and mutual.

Embodied Minds in Action by Robert Hanna Embodied Minds in Action, Hardback (January 2009)

Embodied Minds in Action works out a unified treatment of three fundamental philosophical problems: the mind-body problem, the problem of mental causation, and the problem of action. Hanna and Maiese offer a new paradigm for contemporary mainstream research in the philosophy of mind and cognitive neuroscience.

Kant, Science, and Human Nature by Robert Hanna Kant, Science, and Human Nature, Hardback (October 2006)

Argues for the importance of Kant's theories of the epistemological, metaphysical, and practical foundations of the 'exact sciences' - relegated to the dustbin of the history of philosophy for the 20th century. This book aims to work out the elements of a nonreductive Kantian account of the foundations of the exact sciences.
