Title of the project:

Comprehensive Commentary on Kant’s Prolegomena

Duration:Three years (1-1-2018 to 31-12-2020)
Name of the funding (scheme) & amount of the funding:General Research Fund, $100,000
Introduction of the project:The original purpose of this project was to write a detailed, co-authored commentary on Kant’s book, Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics That Will Be Able to Come Forward as a Science (1783). However, only 10% of the requested funding was granted, and this was not enough to fund the planned postdoctoral fellowship that was to allow the designated co-author to help with the book. The plan has therefore been revised so that the output will now be two or three  journal/conference papers and a short book offering a general introduction to the Prolegomena and some of the key issues that face the reader.
