The Cambridge Companion to Hegel, Paperback

The Cambridge Companion to Hegel Paperback

Edited by Frederick C. Beiser

Part of the Cambridge Companions to Philosophy series



Few thinkers are more controversial in the history of philosophy than Hegel.

He has been dismissed as a charlatan and obscurantist, but also praised as one of the greatest thinkers in modern philosophy.

No one interested in philosophy can afford to ignore him.

This volume considers all the major aspects of Hegel's work: epistemology, logic, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of history, philosophy of religion.

Special attention is devoted to problems in the interpretation of Hegel: the unity of the Phenomenology of Spirit; the value of the dialectical method; the status of his logic; the nature of his politics.

A final group of chapters treats Hegel's complex historical legacy: the development of Hegelianism and its growth into a left and right-wing school; the relation of Hegel and Marx; and the subtle connections between Hegel and contemporary analytic philosophy.
