Bonne écoute !
Kant is arguably the most influential modern philosopher, but also one of the most difficult. Roger Scruton tackles his exceptionally complex subject with a strong hand, exploring the background to Kant's work and showing why the Critique of Pure Reason has proved so enduring.

Comprehensive, Well Read, But Very Abstract
Roger Scruton's introduction to Kant will provide you with a functional introduction of Kant's main philosophical positions, their importance, failings, historical context, and contemporary relevance. The book's breadth of philosophical topics (metaphysics, ethics, sexuality, political philosophy, cosmology...), along with Scruton explicitly listing where you will find them (say, for example, a discussion of sexuality) in Kant's publications, definitely inspires one to continue exploring Kant after listening. It has to further be said that Kyle Munley does good work narrating this book by capturing the tone of Scruton's writing style, and this is important because Kant can be a difficult listen owing to the abstract nature of the discourse.
I only have one minor criticism related to this issue. I felt like Scruton could have provided the listener with more tangible examples of Kant's philosophy in action, as it ( and maybe this is my own philosophical ineptitude here) was hard at times to follow the lines of reasoning owing to their conceptual nature. The abstract nouns tend to pile up and create a bit of a meta philosopical maze. There is so much transcendence going on! When tangible examples were given it was much easier to understand what Kant was getting at. Having said this, i am pleased to to have read this book. I learned a great deal about Kant's attempt to unify empiricism and rationalism, but i also learned that i am not a Kantian, which was good, as some philosophies ultimately seek to convert you. I don't know if i will continue on to the Critique of Pure Reason, which is also on audible. Maybe one rainy day, or rainy month.
