Reserve Ask us a question


First collected edition, reprinting five of Kant's early writings as published from 1759 to 1768, difficult to acquire in their originals both for the student of 1800 and now; their republication here represents Kant's continued popularity and ascendancy in German philosophy. The five items are:
I. Neuer Lehrbegriff der Verwegung und Ruhe, und der damit verknüpften Folgerungen in den ersten Gründen der Naturwissenschaft.
II. Gedanken bey dem frühzeitigen Ableben des Herrn Joh. Fried. v. Funk, in einem Sendschreiben an dessen Mutter.
III. Versuch über die Krankheiten des Kopfes.
IV. Nachricht von der Einrichtung seiner Vorlesungen in dem Winterhalbenjahre v. 1765-1766.
V. Von dem ersten Grunde des Unterschiedes der Gegenden im Raume.
From the library of Berlin banker and politician Georg von Siemens (1839-1901), with his armorial bookplate to the front pastedown. Siemens was one of the founding directors of Deutsche Bank in 1870, and served in the Prussian House of Representatives and in the Reichstag from 1874 until his death, representing liberal parties.
