 I argue for a novel reading of Kant’s critical enterprise and of Kant’s Copernican Revolution, but especially of the First Critique. In the process, I explain why Kant devotes the second half of the First Critique to what he calls the Transcendental Doctrine of Method. I interpret the First Critique as a critical defense of what Kant calls the world, cosmic or cosmopolitan conception of philosophy against the pretensions of academic philosophy.

This event is open to the public.
