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.

From the Jacket

'Hegel's Phenomenology was written, so the story goes, on the eve of Napoleon's destruction of the Holy Roman Empire and at the beginning of the German 'Wars of Liberation.' The book itself is no less dramatic or revolutionary. It is Hegel's grandest experiment, changing our vision of the world and the very nature of the philosophical ...

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.
