A very strong collection of essays that goes beyond the critical poles that have tended to divide Hegel's readers in recent years. Rather than assuming we already know Hegel, these essays approach the philosopher as an infinitely complex and shifting set of ideas and texts that must be constantly reread, insofar as those texts continue to unfold new meanings through ongoing transformations in the history of philosophy and material culture, before and after Hegel. -- Kenneth Reinhard, University of California, Los Angeles These are exciting times for the student of Hegel. In place of a previously regnant understanding of the great philosopher, depicting him as an absolute idealist unable to comprehend difference, a staid liberal who walked away from his early enthusiasm for the French Revolution, we have a 'new' Hegel. This superb collection gives us the lineaments of this latter Hegel, who grappled unsparingly with difference and whose systematicity allowed breaks and interruptions. -- Kenneth Surin, Duke University
