Georg W.F. Hegel (1770–1831) is one of the most important and sophisticated modern thinkers, but only now are his substantial contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of history, and philosophy of religion gaining the recognition they deserve.
This companion is the first collection of essays to do justice to the extraordinary richness and diversity of Hegel’s philosophy. Specially commissioned essays from international scholars cover all the main areas of Hegel’s mature thought, as well as his influence on significant thinkers, such as Heidegger, Adorno, Derrida, and McDowell.
More than just an overview of Hegel’s work, the essays in this volume draw on the most up–to–date research to offer new perspectives on his thought. With insights for students and specialists alike, A Companion to Hegel provides a valuable understanding of the work of a subtle and challenging philosopher of the natural and the human world.
