Hegel (1770-1831) is one of the major philosophers of the nineteenth century. Many of the major philosophical movements of the twentieth century – from existentialism to analytic philosophy – grew out of reactions against Hegel. He is also one of the hardest philosophers to understand and his complex ideas, though rewarding, are often misunderstood.

In this magisterial and lucid introduction, Frederick Beiser covers every major aspect of Hegel’s thought. He places Hegel in the historical context of nineteenth-century Germany whilst clarifying the deep insights and originality of Hegel’s philosophy.


Frederick Beiser is Professor of Philosophy at Syracuse University. He is author of The Fate of Reason: German Philosophy from Kant to Fichte and editor of the Cambridge Companion to Hegel.
