Essay on Transcendental Philosophy presents the first English translation of Salomon Maimon’s principal work, originally published in Berlin in 1790.
The text includes a comprehensive introduction, a glossary, translators’ notes, a bibliography of writings on Maimon and an index. It also includes translations of correspondence between Maimon and Kant and a letter Maimon wrote to a Berlin journal clarifying the philosophical position of the Essay, all of which bring the book’s context alive for the modern reader.
Full details of the translation are available on the Continuum website.
