About the Authors
  • Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit, first published in 1807, is a work with few equals in systematic integrity, philosophical originality and historical influence. This collection of essays, contributed by leading Hegel scholars, examines all aspects of the work, from its argumentative strategies to its continuing relevance to philosophical debates. The collection combines close analysis with wide-ranging coverage of the text, and also traces connections with debates extending beyond Hegel scholarship, including issues in the philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of action, ethics, and philosophy of religion. In showing clearly that we have not yet exhausted the Phenomenology's insights, it demonstrates the need for contemporary philosophers to engage with Hegel.

    • An important contribution to the debate over Hegel's place in post-Enlightenment philosophy
    • This collection is designed to enable easier access to Hegel's very difficult text
    • Analyses the connections of the philosopher's work to various debates that extend beyond Hegel scholarship

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: '… the Phenomenology demands and indeed has elicited thoughtful interlocutors who must combine Hegel's own qualities - at once philosophically rigorous and focused, and also imaginative and comprehensive. The twelve contributors to Moyar and Quante's excellent volume are readers of just this variety. They wrestle with small portions of Hegel's challenging text and show how Hegel's insights can help advance and even transform our thinking about traditional philosophical problems … this volume is a considerable contribution to the ever-growing literature on Hegel's Phenomenology.' Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
