In the Spirit of Hegel Summary

In the Spirit of Hegel: A Study of G. W. F. Hegel's `Phenomenology of Spirit' by Robert C. Solomon (Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Philosophy, University of Texas, Austin)

The Phenomenology of Spirit was Hegel's grandest experiment, changing our vision of the world and the very nature of philosophical enterprise. In this book, Solomon captures the bold and exhilarating spirit, presenting the Phenomenology as a thoroughly personal as well as philosophical work. He begins with a historical introduction, which lays the groundwork for a section-by-section analysis of the Phenomenology. Both the initiated and readers unacquainted with the intricacies of German idealism will find this to be an accessible and exciting introduction to this great philosopher's monumental work.
