The Critique of Judgement is Kant's third most important work after the critiques of Pure and Practical Reason. "The work consists of two main parts, the first dealing with the aesthetic judgment, the second with the teleological judgement or judgement of the purposiveness in Nature; and it is of considerable importance" (Copleston, A History of Philosophy VI, 209).
From the library, with posthumous bookplate to the front pastedown, of German politician Maximilian Joseph Pfeiffer (1875-1926). Pfeiffer served in the Reichstag intermittently from 1907 to 1924 as a member of the centrist Zentrumspartei, for which he was general secretary from 1918 to 1920. From 1912 he was librarian at the court and state library in Munich, and published various works.
Octavo (187 x 113 mm). Contemporary German half sheep, brown calf label, smooth spine richly gilt to compartments, marbled sides and endpapers.
