Advance praise: 'Kant on Reality, Cause, and Force is the first study to give a coherent account of the complex relationship between qualities, causes, and forces in Kant's philosophy by drawing on important strands in early modern philosophy and science. It is a compelling reconstruction of Kant's critical concept of reality, and, with its distinctively non-psychological viewpoint, it makes an original contribution both to Kant scholarship and to the development of early modern metaphysics and philosophy of nature more broadly.'
