Product Overview

In Who''s Afraid of Idealism the philosophical concept of idealism, the extent to which reality is mind-made, is examined in new light. Author Luis Augusto explores epistemological idealism, which is at the source of all other kinds of idealism, from the viewpoints of Immanuel Kant and Friedrich Nietzsche, two philosophers who spent a large part of their lives denigrating the very concept. Working from Kant and Nietzsche''s viewpoints that idealism was a scandal to philosophy and the cause of nihilism, Augusto evaluates these philosophers and their role in shaping epistemological idealism. Using textual evidence from their writings and their reactions to western philosophers such as Plato, Descartes, and Hegel''s, Who''s Afraid of Idealism? argues that in fact Kant and Nietzsche were really idealists at heart. In accessible prose, this text puts forward a theory that goes against current scholarly opinion, and even Kant and Nietzsche''s opinions of themselves.
