Written by Robert Wicks, a recognised Kant specialist who teaches at the University of Auckland, Kant: A Complete Introduction is designed to give you everything you need to succeed, all in one place. It covers the key areas that students are expected to be confident in, outlining the basics in clear jargon-free English, and then providing added-value features like summaries of key books, and even lists of questions you might be asked in your seminar or exam.

The book uses a structure that mirrors many university courses on Freud and psychoanalysis - explaining and contextualising Kant's theories, which have been among the most influential in Philosophy. The book starts by introducing Kant and his way of thinking and arguing, before looking at how Kant answered three key questions: What can I know What should I do What may I hope In doing so, Professor Wicks introduces the reader to all of Kant's key work, including The Critique of Pure Reason.

Teach Yourself titles employ the 'Breakthrough method', which is designed specifically to overcome problems that students face. This book includes end-of-chapter questions and summaries, and flashcards of key points available on-line and as apps. It also includes key texts and case studies complete with fully referenced quotes ready to use in your essay or exam. This book is written by a current university lecturer who understands what students are expected to know.
