‘Introduction to the Philosophy of History’ by Georg W. F. Hegel


This short book admirably picks up the spirit of what Hegel is saying. It is said to be more accurate than Hartmann’s, and trans­lates a more readable text than does Nisbet’s. It includes (as Hartmann’s does not) an excerpt, which serves as chapter five, from ‘The Geo­graphical Basis of History‘ (particularly interesting for what it says of America), and a brief chapter six, entitled ‘The Division of History.’ The volume closes with an appendix, translating §§341–360 of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right and deals directly with the very concept of ‘World History‘. It constitutes a big help in coming to grips with what Hegel means by ‘Spirit.’
