Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an excellent treatment of a subject which has never been adequately dealt with in English...His book will be the most important study of Hegelian ethics since Bradley's Ethical Studies." H.S. Harris, York University

"Wood's book is outstanding and will help to move Hegel to the centre of current discussion in ethical and political theory." Michael Inwood, Times Literary Supplement

"Access to Hegel's thought is rarely easy. W. deserves high praise for leading the reader along paths that make it possible to locate key Hegelian concepts in relation both to the context in which Hegel proposed them and to a set of issues that, as much as in Hegel's day, still engender lively debate." Philip J. Rossi, Theological Studies

Book Description

Hegel's philosophy of society, politics and history is exposed to ethical debate on human rights, the justification of legal punishment, criteria of moral responsibility, and authority of individual conscience.

there are two sides to absolute freedom; reflective action and relation of right. this book gives you "relation of right" in a precise and understandable way. graduate or post-grad level. highly recommended

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Anton Sevilla on December 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
I was looking for somewhere to start. I had tried reading Hegel before (The Phenomenology of Spirit, Elements of the Philosophy of Right) and he made absolutely no sense to me. When reading parts that Watsuji Tetsuro wrote on Hegel, my reading speed would drop in half. Hegel is just really tough.

But Allen Wood is very accessible, and he makes up for all of Hegel's impenetrability. The book is arranged by theme rather than by period or by work so it is much easier to find sources for and compare and contrast say Hegel's idea of morality. Also, Wood carefully elaborates on how Hegel responds to Kant (and Fichte), helping clarify what makes Hegel unique but without caricaturing their differences. Also, Wood does a good job of situating Hegel in both the history of German philosophy and the various issues of contemporary thought (such as the communitarianism vs liberalism debate).

Having finished reading Wood's work, I proceeded to the Philosophy of Right, and it's quite astonishing how it finally makes sense! Of course, Wood is no substitute for reading the primary text and digesting it for oneself. But it's a great place to start. I'm surprised this is just the second review. It's an excellent work, had to give it my two thumbs up.
