Immanuel Kant's three Critiques form the cornerstone of his philosophy and are amongst the most influential philosophy works ever published. The Critik der reinen Vernunft, 1781, (Critique of Pure Reason) is probably the most widely read text of Western philosophy, in spite of its 856 pages. The second Critique, published in 1788 on practical reason (Critik der practischen Vernunft), is less than half the size and is a more elaborate survey of moral concepts and assumptions. It has been of particular influence in the English speaking world. The last and final Critique,Critik der Urtheilskraft, deals with the foundations of aesthetics. There is always a lot of scholarly interest in how the great works in philosophy were changed by the author. Kant is no exception in this respect and his changes to the three Critiques are extensive. For the first time the reprint of all first editions, together with the best editions is being made available.
