About the Authors
  • With a full chronology, general introduction, explanatory annotation, glossary and bibliography, this volume seeks to give students with no specialist knowledge access to both the practical and metaphysical aspects of Hegel's political thought. This collection gathers together for the first time in English translation Hegel's most important political writings, other than the Philosophy of Right, and provides insights into how Hegel's educational and religious views conflicted with the political values around which Prussian authorities organized their authoritarian regime.

    • Gives students with no specialist knowledge access to the practical and the metaphysical aspects of Hegel's political thought
    • First time that a collection of Hegel's most important works (other than Philosophy of Right) have appeared in English
    • Contains full supporting material (chronology, glossary, bibliography, notes and helpful general introduction)
