Sebastian Rand reviews McCumber’s Understanding Hegel’s Mature Critique of Kant:

In sum, McCumber’s book is required reading for students of the period and for specialists in the field, and is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in the history of philosophy and its relevance to current debates.
