‘This is a sympathetic and very enlightening introduction to Hegel’s thought, which will provide great assistance to those studying his work for the first time, while also being of interest to experts in the field. The new material on the Phenomenology, Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Subjective Spirit adds to what has always been one of the best texts on Hegel’s philosophy as a whole.’ Robert Stern, Professor of Philosophy, University of Sheffield


‘With the addition of five new chapters Houlgate’s book becomes, hands down, the best introduction to Hegel’s philosophy available. Houlgate is everywhere a lucid and patient guide to the depths and richness of Hegel’s thought. An indispensable book for newcomers to Hegel. Highly recommended.’ J. M. Bernstein, New School for Social Research
