Summary

The first translation into English and the first detailed interpretation of Hegel's System der Sittlichkeit (1802-3) and of Philosophie des Geistes, the two earliest surviving versions of Hegel's social theory. Hegel's central concept of the spirit evolved in these two works. An 87-page interpretation by Harris precedes the translations.

"This edition by H. S. Harris and Sir Malcolm Knox continues the high quality of early Hegel texts recently published in English. Together with the recent translations by H. S. Harris and Walter Cerf, Faith and Knowledge and The Difference Between the Systems of Fichte and Schelling (also published by SUNY Press), this volume provides key texts for the historical reconstruction and early evolution of Hegelian doctrine. . . . These volumes belong in the libraries of all colleges and universities where 19th-century philosophy, especially German Idealism, is seriously studied . . . . Highly recommended." -- Choice

"This book is an excellent contribution to greater and complete understanding of Hegel. The editors and translators have done painstaking work in translating and simplifying Hegel's difficult style . . . . The book is interesting and worthy of study for it sets forth Hegel's view of finite governments and their relation to the universe which exerts an unconscious influence over man." -- Contemporary Philosophy

H. S. Harris is Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Glendon College, York University. Sir Malcolm Knox is principal of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
