    difficult thinker

    Quote from a harvard open course :

    "And a few years later, Kant wrote thegr oundwork for "Metaphysics of Morals" which we read in this course.
    I want to acknowledge even before we start that Kant is a difficult thinker."

    What does "difficult thinker mean here?

    Re: difficult thinker

    For me, it means that his thoughts were complex and, perhaps, will be difficult for students to understand. It's a little warning to students that they might be confused.

    Note that Harvard should be capitalised.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
