Dreams of a Spirit-Seer  (1899) 
by Immanuel Kant, translated by Emanuel F. Goerwitz

Original title: Träume eines Geistersehers (1766)

Translator's Note[edit]

The difficulties which Kant's style presents to the translator into English need not be dwelt upon with those who are familiar with his works. My main endeavour has been to produce a readable translation. I have, therefore, laid stress on the faithful and lucid representation of the author's thought, while the preservation of the periodic constructions of the original was of secondary interest. I am, however, conscious that I have not in all places succeeded in sailing with even keel between the extremes of strictly literal translation and paraphrase.
