Some people are complainnig about the difficulty of this book, especially in comparison to others in the same series. Two thoughts - have any of you read Kant? Scruton would've been given a medal if he summarized the Critique of Pure Reason so succinctly in Kant's day. Secondly, such is the power of Kant's thought in relation to some of his peers.
