About the Authors
  • This study explores the theme of freedom in the philosophy of Hegel and Nietzsche. First, Will Dudley sets Hegel's Philosophy of Right within a larger systematic account and deploys the Logic to interpret it. He demonstrates that freedom involves not only the establishment of certain social and political institutions but also the practice of philosophy itself. Then, he reveals how Nietzsche's discussions of decadence, nobility and tragedy lead to an analysis of freedom that critiques heteronomous choice and Kantian autonomy, and ultimately issues a positive conception of liberation.

    • Controversial comparative study of the theme of freedom in Hegel and Nietzsche demonstrating hitherto unacknowledged convergence of ideas
    • Provides interpretations that will influence future research
    • For a study of German philosophy it is written with unusual clarity
