Introduction to the "Philosophy of History" : With Selections from the "Philosophy of Right" Paperback

Description

...eminently readable ...admirably picks up the spirit of what Hegel is saying...more readable and accurate than Hartmann's, and it trans-lates a more readable text than does Nisbet's.

It includes (as Hartmann's does not) an excerpt, which serves as chapter five, from 'The Geo-graphical Basis of History' (particularly interesting for what it says of America), and a brief chapter six, entitled 'The Division of History.' The volume closes with an appendix, translating 341--360 of Hegel's Philosophy of Right and deals directly with the very concept of 'World History.' It constitutes a big help in coming to grips with what Hegel means by 'Spirit.' --Quentin Lauer, SJ, Fordham University, in International Philosophical Quarterly
