Introduction by the author:

Sir,
To further, so far as in us lies, the growth of the sciences is to work in your Excellency's own interest, your own interest being intimately connected with them, not only through the exalted position of a patron of science but through the far more intimate relation of a lover and enlightened judge. For that reason, I' avail myself of the only means within my power of proving my gratitude for the gracious confidence with which your Excellency honors me as if I too could help toward your noble work.

Most obedient Servant,

IMMANUEL KANT.
