I Kant Think of a Pun for the Title

I grant Kant's metaphysics are problematic (but really, whose metaphysics aren't?): nonetheless, I still don't understand why Russell finds him overrated. Kant's wrong at times, surely, but he's wrong in an interesting and sophisticated way, whereas Spinoza--Russell's favorite--seems to spout nothing but New Age maxims, at least from Russell's presentation.

Also, amazingly, my friend Matt sent me this link uninvited just hours after I finished the Kant chapter and moved on to Hegel.
