G.W.F. Hegel's philosophy is notoriously difficult—but also richly rewarding because of his breadth of vision, extensive treatment of human concerns, and dedication to discovering unity within a world of diversity, opposing tendencies, and strife. Fox provides an engaging and illuminating guide to the work of a complex and original thinker whose arguments are very much alive and relevant today. For both beginners and those already familiar with Hegel's work, this excellent overview of one of philosophy's great geniuses offers many clarifications and insights.
"This is a delightful study, avoiding strongly technical vocabulary, and showing how Hegel's philosophy fits with other plausible ways of understanding the world." —John Burbridge, Prof. Emeritus of Philosophy
"The book is carefully and clearly written. It does not simplify Hegel, but it does make his thinking accessible—without compromising on the complexity and subtlety of Hegel's thought.
