This man was a gigantic genius. Period.

His philosophical constructs cover every conceiveable subject from religion to law to history to politics. There are "left" and "right" Hegelians, including Marx, Lenin, Mussolini. Forced onto the stage of Kierkegaard(who mocked his intricate mental structures), and even the thought of the late Pope John Paul II and the current pope. Love him or hate him, he was a huge mind who created his own logic.
A good general introduction to Hegel with selections from 'The Philosophy of History,' 'The History of Philosophy,' 'The Science of Logic,' 'Philosophy of Right,' 'Lectures on Aesthetics,' and 'The Phenomenology of Spirit' ... older translations but I actually prefer this rendering of the 'Phenomenology' as somewhat clearer than the more recent and popular one of Miller ... Friedrich also edited Modern's 'The Philosophy of Kant'...

I picked this Modern Library collection up cheaply at a used bookstore in Manhattan, but didn't get around to reading it until preparing for Ardis Collin's course on Hegel taught during the second semester of 1981/2 at Loyola University Chicago. Since some of the texts are mere extracts, I would not recommend this edition for any serious student of Hegel.

11/01/2011 - Just started reading this. Reading Hegel, Schopenhauer, and Kierkegaard 'Either/Or' for the 'Creature Feature' screenplays. Already read 'Fear and Trembling'. Wondering if I should read Kant.

German philosopher and one of the founding figures of German Idealism. Influenced by Kant's transcendental idealism and Rousseau's politics, Hegel formulated an elaborate system of historical development of ethics, government, and religion through the dialectical unfolding of the Absolute. Hegel was one of the most well-known historicist philosopher, and his thought presaged continental philosophy ...more
