Hegel (1770-1831) is one of the major philosophers of the nineteenth century. Many of the major philosophical movements of the twentieth century - from existentialism to analytic philosophy - grew out of reactions against Hegel. He is also one of the hardest philosophers to understand and his complex ideas, though rewarding, are often misunderstood. In this magisterial and lucid introduction, Frederick Beiser covers every major aspect of Hegel's thought. He places Hegel in the historical context of nineteenth-century Germany whilst clarifying the deep insights and originality of Hegel's philosophy. A masterpiece of clarity and scholarship, Hegel is both the ideal starting point for those coming to Hegel for the first time and essential reading for any student or scholar of nineteenth century philosophy.

The Open Society and Its Enemies

Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in 1945, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a 'vigorous and profound defence of democracy', its now legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems. Popper's highly accessible style, his erudite and lucid explanations of the thought of great philosophers and the recent resurgence of totalitarian regimes around the world are just three of the reasons for the enduring popularity of The Open Society and Its Enemies, and for why it demands to be read both today and in years to come. This is the second of two volumes of The Open Society and Its Enemies.

Hegel und der Schatten des dialektischen Materialismus

Seit zwei Jahrhunderten operiert die westliche Philosophie im Schatten von Hegel. Es ist ein sehr langer Schatten, und jede neue Philosophengeneration ersinnt seither neue Wege, um aus ihm herauszutreten. Während die einen dies mittels neuer theoretischer Konzepte versuchen, überziehen die anderen sein Denken schlicht mit Hohn und Spott. Slavoj Žižek unternimmt in seinem monumentalen Buch erst gar nicht den Versuch, aus diesem Schatten herauszutreten, macht es sich aber auch keineswegs darin bequem. Seine Devise lautet nicht: Zurück zu Hegel! Sondern: Wir müssen hegelianischer sein als der Meister selbst, um wie er die Brüche und Verwerfungen in der Realität verstehen und kritisieren zu können. In dieser hyperhegelianischen Manier und mit gewohnt pointierten Abschweifungen in (fast) alle Bereiche von Philosophie, Kunst und Leben rettet Žižek Hegels radikal emanzipatorisches Projekt für unsere Zeit.

The Philosophy of Hegel

Few philosophers can induce as much puzzlement among students as Hegel. His works are notoriously dense and make very few concessions for a readership unfamiliar with his systematic view of the world. Allen Speight's introduction to Hegel's philosophy takes a chronological perspective on the development of Hegel's system. In this way, some of the most important questions in Hegelian scholarship are illuminated by examining in their respective contexts works such as the "Phenomenology and the Logic". Speight begins with the young Hegel and his writings prior to the "Phenomenology" focusing on the notion of positivity and how Hegel's social, economic and religious concerns became linked to systematic and logical ones. He then examines the "Phenomenology" in detail, including its treatment of scepticism, the problem of immediacy, the transition from "consciousness" to "self-consciousness", and the emergence of the social and historical category of "Spirit". The following chapter explores the Logic, paying particular attention to a number of vexed issues associated with Hegel's claims to systematicity and the relation between the categories of Hegel's logic and nature or spirit (Geist). The final chapters discuss Hegel's ethical and political thought and the three elements of his notion of "absolute spirit": art, religion and philosophy, as well as the importance of history to his philosophical approach as a whole.
