Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oh my To understand this book fully, you need a serious background in philosophy and a penchant for obscure prose. Lots of great stuff in here, but dense and technical as it can be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast This just about killed me, but I finished it. "Finished" as in I got bits and pieces and will be rereading it for the rest of my life if I want to get the slightest grasp on it. But I love books like that - the easy one's are boring.

From Our Editors

Hegel's intellectual pursuit of what he called the Absolute Spirit was nothing less than an attempt to understand the true workings of the world, and to derive the internal order and progression of the universe. Through reason's dialectic, he believed, creation's guiding principles would unfold, and the Absolute would manifest itself in increasing measures in the thought and history of humanity. Hegel built upon the ideas of Spinoza, Rousseau and Kant - though he did not agree with them on all points - and went on to reshape Western thought. His influence can be detected in the writings of everyone from Kierkegaard to Marx. This book is a wonderful starting point for anyone who wishes to understand Hegel's achievements, and will prove valuable to both experts and novices.
