This collection gathers together in English translation Hegel’s most important political writings, apart from the Philosophy of Right, and provides insights into how Hegel’s educational and religious views conflicted with the political values around which Prussian authorities organized their authoritarian regime.

The ethical and metaphysical texts in this collection both illuminate and contrast with those political and historical texts in which Hegel draws important conclusions about the modern world from remarkable comparative analyses of recent developments in England, France and Germany.

The translator of these texts, H. B. Nisbet, was responsible for the acclaimed rendition of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, and Lawrence Dickey’s lucid editorial commentary introduces this distinctive corpus of political writing by one of the very greatest thinkers in the European tradition.

With a full chronology, general introduction, explanatory annotation, glossary and bibliography, this volume seeks to give students with no specialist knowledge access to both the practical and metaphysical aspects of Hegel’s political thought.
