دومین باری بود که این کتاب رو میخوندم. بخش دیالکتیک ابژه و دیالکتیک سوژه رو از خود پدیدارشناسی خوندم، ولی مابقی رو صرفاً از این تفسیر ازش اطلاعاتی دارم. پدیدارشناسی ترجمهی خوبی به فارسی نداره و کتاب بهشدت دشوار و سختفهمی هم هست، بنابراین خوندن تفسیری در کنارش بهنظرم قطعاً لازمه و این یکی از بهترین تفسیرهاست. روانه ولی سادهسازی بیشازحد نشده که جان کلام کشته شه.

If one is going to tackle Hegel, this may be the way to do it. I enjoyed this companion guide as I was not interested in reading the difficult and dated text of Hegel. There are a few excellent analogies and quotations from other philosophers which do a trtemendously good job of explaining the phenomenology of spirit. I now have a decent grip on this much of Hegel's philosophy, why it is useful, and why it is outdated.

Stern's writing is well-structured and readable, and he touches on most of the topics in Hegel's work; but he leaves unclear what Hegel's actual ideas are.

The first chapter provides a

This is the best text to help understand the PoS I've found. I recommend reading the PoS first, section by section, then read this guidebook. Then go back to the specific paragraphs this guidebook mentions and reread them in the text.

I don’t enjoy Hegel, but if you have to read the Phenomenology of Spirit, this is a good way to get through it. This is a very helpful guide through a difficult book.

This is a must-have book to understand Hegel's work. It makes it much easier to understand The Phenomenology of Spirit, if a person reads this book first!
