Immanuel Kant

Immanuel Kant is considered to be one of the greatest enlightenment philosophers of the eighteenth century and history, having contributed to the inception of many classically liberal ideas including the theory of inalienable rights, freedom, and construction of modern government. His major literary achievements include Critique of Pure Reason, The Metaphysics of Morals, and Theory and Practice.
