"Anthony Savile's account of the Aesthetic and Analytic, elegantly written with a light touch, is a valuable addition to the literature on the Critique of Pure Reason. It provides a careful, sympathetic, and concise interpretation of transcendental idealism which students at all levels will find both instructive and enjoyable to read."
