In this introductory chapter, the historical and philosophical significance of a consideration of Kant’s discussion of rational psychology in its context is argued for. The distinctiveness of Christian Wolff’s rational psychology with respect to that attributed to Descartes and Leibniz is outlined. In addition, a brief survey of the history of rational psychology in 18th-century Germany is offered, and an overview of the argument of the book is presented.

Keywords:   Descartes, Leibniz, Wolff, Kant, rational psychology
