There was no description listed on the archive page, nor does a wikipedia page exist for this particular work, so I decided to handle this as awkwardly as possible and enter "N/A" into the dialogue boxes on the submission page. So, uh... yeah. I'll look for a description of the work on another page in Gutenberg, and post it here if I can find it.

Otherwise, LibriVox user LectorRecitator posted a very detailed and thoughtful description of the work in another thread that may be suitable instead. It also contains some warning information.

Details

∙ Title: The Philosophy Of Immanuel Kant
∙ Author/Editor: Lindsay, Alexander Dunlop (1879–1952), Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Glasgow
∙ Publisher: T. C. & E. C. Jack, Ltd
∙ Date/Edition/Impression: 1919

NOTE: If one compares the contents of both versions of 1913 & 1919 one gets the impression of the latter being an enlarged edition. However I presume it is due to stretching of the text in the latter one and that both impressions are identical in context, but I might be wrong. The one available at Project Gutenberg is the 1913 edition. The attached copy is the 1919 version, which I believe it is prudent to be the one that gets recorded, just to be on the safe side, since it is larger.

Description

A brief examination of Kant’s philosophical thought.
The author focuses strictly on the Three Critiques and from these he pinpoints essential aspects, which he subsequently examines one by one accordingly in 7 chapters.
A well written introductory study, worth recording.

"There is a story that Schopenhauer used to begin his lectures on Kant by saying: "Let no one tell you what is contained in the Critique of Pure Reason." The writer of this little book hopes that no one will imagine that he has disregarded this warning. There are no short-cuts to the understanding of a great philosopher, and the only way to appreciate the greatness of a philosophic system is to study the philosopher's own writings. All that the writer of a book like this can hope to do is to persuade others to undertake that study by interesting them in the problems with which it deals, and by offering a few suggestions which may help to an understanding of it. I have said nothing about the numerous other works which Kant wrote. For the three Critiques contain his system, and the understanding of that is all-important."

(Foreword of the Book)

Readability Information

115 pages long, divided into 7 brief chapters, plus 1 page of Foreword and 1 page of Bibliography worth reading.
1 illustration out of text.
Total: 117 pages.

(Suitable for Novice/Solo Readers)

I'm interested in this, I had it on my list of "maybe I'll record this at some point", but I'd love to be your DPL instead :D

Awesome, thanks Foon! I'm very grateful.

I'll have the recordings ready for us to work on soon. There's just a few things though -- First, I'm not very familiar with German names and places so I'm going to be going off of light research and intuition when I pronounce them. There aren't too many, but I still want to be on the safe side. I'm not sure how familiar you are with German, but if you hear anything that definitely seems wrong, could you let me know?

Also, there seems to be a bit of extra work that comes with this project on my end and which you should probably know about. The text in the archive has some occasional ink weathering or paper damage that makes certain sections unreadable. When this happens, I'm going to be switching over to the following undamaged version. As DPL, it might be beneficial to cross-reference with it (a smaller 1913 text file with less content) if you're reading along:

https://archive.org/details/philosophyofimma00linduoft/page/34

There is also the Gutenberg .html version here, but again, it seems shorter:
https://www.gutenberg.org/files/47880/47880-h/47880-h.html

Primarily, I'm going to be reading from the 1920 version I put in this thread's original post despite the damage, since it contains more content. However, I'll let you know the exact pages and audio timestamps I'm going to be switching to the undamaged version, if that's okay.

Also, an important bit of information to whoever decides to be the MC:

Above, in the original post I made about the book, it states that there is no preface or introduction. There is a foreword, but it is less than one page, meaning that it would likely be more constructive if I include it in the same recording as the first chapter rather than as an entirely separate file. But as always, if you find that this is detrimental to the project in some way, I will be happy to record them separately.

Sure! I'm Dutch, and I speak some German, so while I'm not able to help you do it perfectly, I'll probably be able to point out any major mispronunciations. But I'm sure you'll be fine!

I think this is something that the prospective MC needs to take a look at, I don't know to what extent text-swapping is accepted.

Switching back and forth is not a good option especially if you are not using identical editions. Here is an alternate scan of the 1919 text to consider.

Fantastic! Thank you for this. Skimming through it, nothing seems illegible, so that's good. When you were looking for this, did you search for it specifically by publication year? I just ask with the hope of knowing how to look for different versions of texts while avoiding this problem in the future.

No, I searched for "kant by lindsay" and got a hit on Hathitrust to the 1913 edition. However, on the left of the screen are related search hits and the 1919 text was first on that list. :)

Youre all set!

Note the following,

1. This is your first solo, congratulations! As a soloist, you manage your own magic window. To get in, click on bc admin and pretend you forgot your password. The system will send you one by email. You can change it once youre in :) please let me know if it works!
Here are some notes https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Soloists:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

2. I cant access the hathitrust text and i assume foon cant either. I understand that this is a better scan of the same edition you had initially? In that case the damaged scan might not be good enough to read from but ok for proof listening purposes. If all fails maybe you can download the hathitrust text and send it to foon, thats up to yous :)

3. Small notes
- Ive shortened the file name if thats ok with you
- i entered the first section title in the magic window, but you can change it to another format if you like.
- woild you like a separate section for the forword, or read it with chapter 1, or skip it?

Thank you!
Carolin

That's correct, I hadn't checked yet, but indeed I can't access it. If it's the same edition, I'd be fine with PLing from the damaged scan, but if it's not the same, we need a different solution (like what Carolin suggested!)
