Three essays concerning the possibility of reconciling Philosophy with Law, Medicine and Theology. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) rarely travelled far from Königsberg, the city of his birth, but his influence has been immense. The Contest of Faculties was one of his last published works. This is a fresh, unsophisticated copy.
