Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Top scholars address Hegel’s History of Philosophy.

This volume approaches the study of Hegel’s History of Philosophy from a variety of angles, while centering on Hegel’s Berlin “Lectures on the History of Philosophy” (1819–1831) which were given to students and later published. The lectures address most fundamentally what philosophy is—the philosophy of philosophy, so to speak. The contributors treat many significant and topical issues, including: discussions of Hegel’s overall idea of a history of philosophy; his treatment of various philosophers and philosophical views from the historical tradition; and the role of Hegel’s own philosophical system as a culmination in the development of philosophy historically. This unique collection provides incisive and provocative analyses on an area of study that until now has not garnered as much attention as it deserves.

“It is enjoyable and useful to have a tour of the history of philosophy conducted by thoughtful commentators on Hegel, and at the same time to have expert reflections on the nature and presuppositions of the tour.” — David Kolb, editor of New Perspectives on Hegel’s Philosophy of Religion

“This book is important for several reasons. First, it demonstrates in its own way the centrality of the history of philosophy for Hegel’s system, even though this topic is largely ignored in English-speaking Hegel scholarship. Second, it addresses the fundamental problem of the relation between history and system and Hegel’s solution to it. Even those not interested in the details of Hegel’s relation to Sextus Empiricus will be interested in Hegel’s solution to the problem of how truth can have a history.” — Brent Adkins, Loyola University
