This is a great Twitter thread that takes on one of the most difficult works in philosophy - Kant's Critique of Pure Reason - and expresses it in a little over 100 tweets. And it's done with grace, sensibility and humour. If I had to summarize Kant's Critique in one tweet, I'd say something like: he defines the necessary conditions for the possibility of perception (beginning with space and time). But now I don't have to; readers can enjoy this thread and, when sufficiently piqued, explore Kant more deeply. But I suspect that the main result is that they'll find numerous concepts (eg., the analytic - synthetic distinction) and recall, "Oh yeah, that was discussed by Kant." Via Mini-Heap.
