Translation Projects

Background Sources to Kant’s Practical Philosophy.

I am currently engaged in a book-length translation project of various background source materials helpful for understanding Kant’s practical philosophy. With the help of a generous grant from the Frederick M. Barnard Trust, I am translating approximately 250 pages of reviews, selections from books, short articles, and lecture notes by authors such as Christian August Crusius, Christian Garve, J.G. Herder, H.A. Pistorius, August Wilhelm Rehberg, Christian Wolff, and others.

For a more detailed description of the project, see here: Walschots – Background Sources to Kant’s Practical Philosophy

See here for a sample translation of Pistorius’ review of the Groundwork.
