This new translation of the first volume of Hegel's Lectures on the History of Philosophy is a welcome and valuable addition to the new translations of Hegel's works, and now appears in paperback for the first time. Hegel's History of Philosophy has been described as perhaps one of hisgreatest achievements, and also as the first systematic history of philosophy since Aristotle. The translation included material from lecture notes taken by Hegel's pupils in 1923-4, 1925-6, and 1927-8. This material was not available to Haldane and Simson when they made their translation nearly100 years ago. The present volume, which supersedes that earlier one, besides being indispensable for the professional student, will also introduce those unfamiliar with Hegel to his conception of philosophy.

"Likely to become the standard English version...provides one of the best ways into the forbidding world of Hegel's thought....The new translation is excellent: both careful and at the same time readable." --Philosophical Books "Can serve to introduce the student to his general system....The beginner will...appreciate the Introduction, for...it serves to make clear in relatively simple terms Hegel's general intention."--The Modern Schoolman
