Product description


'… this is the most rounded and reliable life of Hegel there has ever been.' London Review of Books

'Terry Pinkard's biography is of the first rank. … [The] known material has never been marshalled with more spacious clarity.' Observer

'… makes [Hegel] into a real human being whose philosophical odyssey becomes credible, even touching.' Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History Emeritus, Yale University

'The fullest and undoubtedly the best ever account of Hegel's life in the English language.' Sunday Telegraph

'Terry Pinkard offers the most rounded, richly filled-out picture of Hegel, as both philosopher and man, that we have ever had in English. This will quickly become the standard biography of Hegel, and richly deserves to do so. In an age of fine Hegel scholarship, this is a towering achievement.' Boston Book Review

'An absorbing and thorough review of the great philosopher's life.' Observer

'This is the most extensive and full biography of Hegel to appear in English, a biography long overdue. It is a great pleasure to read.' Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie

'The English-speaking world has had to wait a long time for a good, detailed biography of Hegel. It now has this useful volume by Terry Pinkard to fill the gap … The result is a more complete picture of the man than we have ever had in English. We are all in his debt.' Bulletin of the Hegel Society of Great Britain

'… monumental book, written by a fine American Hegel scholar … all students of Hegel and of Hegelian idealism should welcome this work …' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Book Description

This major biography of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel offers not only a complete account of the life, but also a perspicuous overview of the key philosophical concepts in Hegel's work.
