Given the philosophical focus of the European Journal of Philosophy, it is scarcely surprising that a good number of the articles that we have published discuss Kant’s thought and its influence. For, of course, Kant is one of the giants of the European tradition in philosophy, without whom this tradition would surely not have taken the direction it did. Not only is it impossible to imagine the figures that followed Kant without his influence (positive and negative) upon them, so too it is hard to conceive of the subsequent debates if Kant had not written as he did.
