By Immanuel Kant / Thomas Clark / 1838
Religion within the Boundary of Pure Reason is divided into four “Pieces” that Kant originally intended to publish as a series of journal articles. The book discusses the place of rational religion, which forms the underlying skeleton of religion. The various historical religions are then discussed with attention to their ability to communicate the precepts of rational religion to the people.

Immanuel Kant (1724–1804) was born in Königsberg, Prussia, in a Pietist Lutheran family. He attended the University of Königsberg, becoming a lecturer there after graduation. In 1770, he accepted the chair of logic and metaphysics at Königsberg. He published and taught a variety of subjects, but focused on metaphysics and its relationship to physics and mathematics. He was heavily influenced by the writings of Leibniz, Newton, Hume, and Rousseau, drawing on both the empiricist and the rationalist schools. He wrote works of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and teleology. His revolutionary contribution to philosophy is his argument that human knowledge of the world comes from sense experience but is shaped by innate structures inherent in human reason.
