About the Authors
  • This series makes available in English important recent work by German philosophers on major figures in the German philosophical tradition. The volumes will provide critical perspectives on philosophers of great significance to the Anglo-American philosophical community--perspectives that have been largely ignored except by a handful of writers on German philosophy. This collection brings together in translation the finest post-war German language scholarship on Hegel's social and political philosophy, concentrating on the Elements of the Philosophy of Right.

    • Strong collection of first German scholarship on Hegel's social and political philosophy
    • Hegel studies do well for us (e.g. Pippin's Hegel's Idealism, Pinkard biography)
    • Broad interdisciplinary appeal
