Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Comprehensive overview of Hegel’s thought on history.

Nearly two centuries after declaring “the end of history,” Hegel remains a rich source of insights into our historical nature. The essays collected here interpret and develop those insights, while also challenging Hegel’s philosophical approach to comprehend present and future phenomena that he could neither experience nor imagine. They represent the very best in contemporary scholarship on Hegel and history, and collectively they address all of the important and disputed topics in the field: Hegel’s claim that history has an end, whether his philosophy of history is Eurocentric or racist, how elements of what he terms “subjective spirit” and “objective spirit” contribute to historical development, and the relationship between religion and his philosophy of history.   

Will Dudley is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Williams College. He is the author of Hegel, Nietzsche, and Philosophy: Thinking Freedom and Understanding German Idealism.
