This book shows that, far from incorporating everything into an all-consuming necessity, Hegel's philosophy requires the novelty of unexpected contingencies to maintain its systematic pretensions. John Burbidge explores how Hegel applied this approach to chemistry, biology, psychology and history, and proposes implications on contemporary science.
JOHN W. BURBIDGE is Professor Emeritus in Philosophy at Trent University, Peterborough, Canada. Author of several books on Hegel's Science of Logic and Philosophy of Nature, he has been President of the Hegel Society of America and was elected to the Royal Society of Canada.
