Ein großes Werk zum Abschluss bringen

  • Volker Gerhardt EMAIL logo , Jacqueline Karl and Andrea Marlen Esser


After a short history of the Akademie-Ausgabe der Werke Immanuel Kants, it is shown that the edition is incomplete in some essential parts: The central topic of the first part of the article is the Opus postumum. Here we have a new critical transcription which differs not only in the composition but even in many details. The second project is focused on Nachschriften of Kant’s lectures on Physische Geographie. The three volumes will show that Kant continually actualized the material for this complex area of problems, for which he presented the outlines of a new academic discipline (as he did too in his Anthropology). The other central topic is the new edition of the three Critiques. The second part of the article demonstrates principle steps of critical editing using the example of Kant’s third Critique, the Critique of Judgment.
