Prolegomena: What Does Real Option Analysis Bring to Climate Change Policy
The word prolegomena is defined as “a critical or discursive introduction to a book.” This is what it means here but with a twist. The German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724–1804) wrote Prolegomena zu einer jeden künftigen Metaphysik, die als Wissenschaft wird auftreten können, or Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics That Will Be Able to Present Itself as a Science. In that book, Kant in a rather polemic way explained what he wanted to accomplish by writing a previous book, Critique of Pure Reason, which many think is his masterpiece but was poorly received at the time.
