Hegels Philosophy of Right: A Readers Guide

by David Edward Rose

Bloomsbury Academic | June 9, 2007 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review

Hegel's Philosophy of Right is a classic text in the history of Western political thought and one with which all serious students of political philosophy must engage. While it is a hugely important and exciting piece of philosophical writing, Hegel's ideas and style are notoriously difficult to understand and the content is particularly challenging. In Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right': A Reader's Guide, David Rose explains the philosophical and political background against which the book was written and, taking each part of the book in turn, guides the reader to a clear understanding of the text as a whole. This is the ideal companion to study of this most influential and challenging of texts, offering guidance on:
- Philosophical and historical context
- Key themes
- Reading the text
- Reception and Influence
- Further Reading

Editorial Reviews

"Any text that serves to bring this difficult philosopher into the mainstream of political theory is to be welcomed...A useful book to give students who wish to prepare themselves quickly for the study of Hegel’s great work…worthwhile purchase for a university library...A clear sure-footed and trustworthy account of a the central doctrines of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right."
