About the Authors
  • Hegel's The Phenomenology of Spirit (1807) is one of the most influential texts in the history of modern philosophy. In it, Hegel proposed an arresting and novel picture of the relation of mind to world and of people to each other. Like Kant before him, Hegel offered up a systematic account of the nature of knowledge, the influence of society and history on claims to knowledge, and the social character of human agency itself. A bold new understanding of what, after Hegel, came to be called 'subjectivity' arose from this work, and it was instrumental in the formation of later philosophies, such as existentialism, Marxism, and American pragmatism, each of which reacted to Hegel's radical claims in different ways. This edition offers a new translation, an introduction, and glossaries to assist readers' understanding of this central text, and will be essential for scholars and students of Hegel.

    • A new English translation of Hegel's most influential text, rendering its technical terminology accurately and consistently
    • Includes an introduction to provide context for the work and its translation, and a two-way glossary to enable readers to compare German and English terms
    • This early nineteenth-century text proposed a radical picture of the relation of mind to world and of people to each other, and was key to the formation of later philosophies

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Pinkard provides an admirably clear statement of his position on translating it, and his stated aim of rendering the text as clearly as possible without letting his interpretation of Hegel's philosophical positions form the terms of translation is well realized … He also provides a trusty overview of the Phenomenology's main themes and a lively account of the history of its production.' Fred Rush, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

    'A welcome update of a philosophical classic.' C. R. McCall, Choice
