Lloyd Spencer & Andrzej Krauze: Hegel for beginners
Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel is one of the greatest philisophers of all time. No other philosopher has had such a profound influence on the ideas and political events of the 20th century. Hegel for beginners guides us through a spectacular system which aimed to make sense of history. It alsoprovides new perspectives on contemporary postmodern debates about “meta-narratives” (Lyotard) and the “end of history” (Fukuyama). It is an ideal introduction to this key figure in the history of philisophy and indispensable for anyone trying to understand such key modern thinkers as Marx, Lacan, Sartre and Adorno.
