This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of two letters, both written in March 1801, that reflect the Kant crisis that generated such varied responses in the literature on Kleist. It then presents a reading of Kant that prepares the way for a number of claims relating to Kleist. In particular, it discusses Kantian and Kleistian conceptions of truth and reason.
