Summary "The philosophy of Solomon Maimon (1753-1800) is widely considered an important link between Kant's transcendental philosophy and German idealism. Yet, over the past two centuries, Maimon's genius has been poorly understood and often ignored." "Meir Buzaglo offers a reconstruction of the philosophical system proposed by Maimon as a challenge to Kant's concept-intuition dualism, and carries out the detailed plan outlined in Maimon's Versuch. He reads Maimon as an independent post-Kantian thinker whose contributions should be measured on their own terms, and argues that the nature of Maimon's philosophical system will be revealed only in the light of his philosophy of mathematics."--Jacket
