[A] magnificent new book… That Beiser manages to keep the reader afloat as he steers through such deep and turbulent waters deserves the highest praise. Expository writing of unfailing lucidity is supported by reference to an unrivalled range of sources… I learned something from this book on almost every page...For anyone at all seriously interested in the topic this is now the place to start.—Michael Rosen, Times Literary Supplement

Frederick Beiser’s new work provides English readers [with] a comprehensive and masterly explanation of the central forces that shaped the important philosophical movement known as German idealism. German Idealism is well written, exquisitely argued, and copiously researched. It easily outdistances much of the German scholarship and will serve as a benchmark for future English language scholarship. It is a must-read for scholars of the field, a helpful, accessible guide for the interested, and a valuable resource for all historians of philosophy.—Grant Kaplan, Review of Metaphysics
