'Kant's Empirical Realism challenges and enriches our understanding of Kant's philosophy... a rewarding book; the writing is clear, the structure is helpful and he uses some vivid examples.' -Lucy Allais, Times Literary SupplementPaul Abela presents a powerful, experience-sensitive form of realism about the relation between mind and world, based on an innovative interpretation of Kant. Abela breaks with tradition in taking seriously Kant's claim that his Transcendental Idealism yields a form of empirical realism, and giving a realist analysis of major themes of the Critique of Pure Reason. Abela's blending of Kantian scholarship with contemporary epistemology offers a new way of resolving philosophical debates about realism.
