Summary

Explores the full extent of Hegel’s interest in tragedy and comedy throughout his works and extends from more literary and dramatic issues to questions about the role these genres play in the history of society and religion.

No philosopher has treated the subject of tragedy and comedy in as original and searching a manner as G. W. F. Hegel. His concern with these genres runs throughout both his early and late works and extends from aesthetic issues to questions in the history of society and religion. Hegel on Tragedy and Comedy is the first book to explore the full extent of Hegel’s interest in tragedy and comedy. The contributors analyze his treatment of both ancient and modern drama, including major essays on Sophocles, Aristophanes, Shakespeare, Goethe, and the German comedic tradition, and examine the relation of these genres to political, religious, and philosophical issues. In addition, the volume includes several essays on the role tragedy and comedy play in Hegel’s philosophy of history. This book will not only be valuable to those who wish for a general overview of Hegel’s treatment of tragedy and comedy but also to those who want to understand how his treatment of these genres is connected to the rest of his thought.

Mark Alznauer is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University and the author of Hegel’s Theory of Responsibility.
