Lectures on the Philosophy of World History by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Book DescriptionAn English translation of Hegel's introduction to his lectures on the philosophy of history, based directly on the standard German edition by Johannes Hoffmeister, first published in 1955. The previous English translation, by J. Sibree, first appeared in 1857 and was based on the defective German edition of Karl Hegel, to which Hoffmeister's edition added a large amount of new material previously unknown to English readers, derived from earlier editors. In the introduction to his lectures, Hegel lays down the principles and aims which underlie his philosophy of history, and provides an outline of the philosophy of history itself. The comprehensive and voluminous survey of world history which followed the introduction in the original lectures is of less interest to students of Hegel's thought than the introduction, and is therefore not included in this volume.

Books By Author Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Hegel, Hardback (March 2007)
Hegel's lectures have had as great a historical impact as the works he himself published. His 1829 lectures on the proofs of the existence of God are of particular importance because they represent what he actually wrote as distinct from auditors' transcriptions of oral lectures. This work provides a translation of these lectures.
Hegel's Preface to the Phenomenology of Spirit, Hardback (December 2004)
A translation, with running commentary, of what is perhaps the most important short piece of Hegel's writing - "Phenomenology of Spirit". This book offers an explanation of the text and elucidates difficult issues in Hegel, making his claims and intentions intelligible to the beginner while offering insights to the scholar and advanced student.
