A hidden essential masterwork: Kant's introduction to his "Critique of Judgment"

Here. Kant's Intro to his Critique of Judgment is both a great introduction to how he structures his thought in general, but is also really important because the idea of aesthetic cohesion that he introduces would prove to be something that profoundly influenced 19th century philosophy, particularly the line of thought going from the Romantics, to the Idealists, and then outwards, with Marx influenced by it through Hegel. It's a hard read, like most of Kant, but is rewarding for the insights about life and consciousness that it gives.
