‘Hegel’s Quest for Certainty’ by Joseph C. Flay

Published by State University of New York Press in 1985.


In a major contribution to Hegel scholarship, Professor Flay has written two books in one. The first is a close and original reading of the Phenomenology of Spirit and the second, an invaluable source book containing a bibliography (more than 450 titles) and footnotes which discuss in detail the secondary resource material.

The main strength of Flay’s analysis which sets him apart from most others is his correct and firm grasp of the architectonic of the Phenomenology as an introduction to the Hegelian system.

Joseph C. Flay is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Pennsylvania State University.
