Excerpt from Immanuel Kant, Vol. 1 of 2: A Study and a Comparison With Goethe, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bruno, Plato and Descartes

For the exactness of the translation I can Offer the security of Mr. Chamberlain himself. He has taken the pains to,read it through from Alpha to Omega. He has been so kind as to make many suggestions, and not a few emendations. I am therefore in a position to lay before the public a version of his work which has satisfied his critical judgment. His own introduction amply explains what has been his aim, and what are the means by which he has attempted to reach it. It was a happy 1nspiration which led him to test what he calls Kant's style of thought, by comparing it critically with that of the five great Thinkerswhose methods he analyses with all the learning and power of argument for which he is famous. The high praise with which this endeavour has been received by the literary world of Germany will, I hope, find an echo among the learned of his own country. Should it fail to do so it will be my fault and not his. One thing must be remembered. Mr. Chamberlain warns us over and over again that here is no exhaustive treatise upon Kant's philosophy. It is an introduction to the man himself. He, as it were, leads us to Kant, enables usto judge Of his personality, to see how and why he has become such a power in the world Of thought. He wishes to make us know Kant, and, knowing him, to love him as he loves him. NO great Teacher ever had a more devoted disciple than Chamberlain is to Kant. Even in the long years of illness under which he suffered, he tells us that he found 1n Kant a sympathy and a consolation.
