Kant's Last Words: A Conversation with Dr. Terry D. Thomson
Show Notes

Today we’re joined by Dr Terry D. Thomson to discuss his work on Kant’s final, most esoteric, and most understudied philosophical work—his “chief achievement” as he called it—the Opus Postumum. This text is Kant’s attempt to radicalize his own philosophical process, rending the project of his three critiques from their ossifications as dogmas, and opening up a new space for the philosophy of experience—on the ontological, anthropological, and cosmological level, in the promise of an absolute system of ethereal forces. Terry joins us fresh from completing his doctoral thesis on the Opus Postumum And, using the work of Kant scholar Howard Caygill as a base, together we’re going to be pushing to the very limits of transcendental Idealism, in pursuit of the cosmic force of human experience. Other thinkers in the discussion include Deleuze, Hegel, Schelling, Lichtenberg, Spinoza.
