Editorial Reviews

Review


"Michael Inwood's major revision of the Wallace and Miller translation oh Hegel's Philosophy of Mind is a welcome addition to the English-language Hegel library.... Inwood has provided a much-improved translation of an absolutely central text, along with a helpful set of notes that provide a fine starting-point for genuine historical and contemporary engagement with one of Hegel's most rewarding works."--Sebastian Rand, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Format: Paperback
G.W.F. Hegel is surely one of the most notable figures in German Philosophy. His 'Philosophy of Mind' (also known as 'The Philosophy of Spirit') is the third part of an encyclopaedia work showing, in essence, the dialectical 'nature' of the world as a Notion. In his earlier works in this triad (The 'Logic' and 'The Philosophy of Nature') Hegel dealt with, first, the logically necessary principle of explanation for the world and then, secondly, the essence of nature as prior to the development of the Mind. This work deals with the nature of Mind as it goes from subjectivity to objectivity through the stages Anthropological, Phenomenological and Psychological, producing Absolute Spirit, a notion that is then used by Hegel to explain the moral and legal. This is not an easier book to read; the language is convoluted and it may take several readings to gleam anything useful from it. This is partially due to the difficulty of translating German terms to the English and also partially due to the writing style of Hegel himself. However I do recommend that the reader persevere, as it is a very rewarding book to read. You need not agree entirely with what Hegel says to appreciate his philosophy and see the import of what he is trying to do; explain everything from a position of logical necessity. The accompanying Zusatz is also of great use, as it gives more concrete examples used in the actual lectures Hegel based this work upon. All in all, a momentuous book in the history of Philosophy itself and worth reading for the depth and breadth of ideas contained within it.

They want to make very sure you do not read Hegel out of context. We have a very long introduction that predefines what philosophy is and related sciences. Finally we have an over view of Hegel's system by comparing it to Mr. Herbert Spenser. We also get coverage of other thinkers such as Johann Friedrich Herbart, Kant, Shopenhauer, Leibniz, Fichte, Goethe, Aristotle, Boëthius, etc. They even toss in quotes in Latin form Terentius.

This work is very wordy as is most works of the time; so get used to wordy sentences that could be express today with less flamboyance. There is also some overlap of the same thoughts in different sections; it may be seen as redundancy but is really necessary to make the new point of insight. If you think this is all way out theory, keep reading as Hegel show how it applies to everyday life as in politics. Speaking of politics, there is a lot of information on the nature of the national mind. You will come away with the feeling that you got more than your money's worth.

The book was a lot more tattered up then what I was expecting, but I could still read it. I would have liked all the markings on it to have been told to me before the purchase.

Format: Hardcover
This work is seminal. Every philosophy after Hegel is either a reaction to him or a footnote. His method has achieved scientific verification in the past century in the areas of developmental psychology (Margaret Mahler), in historicism, in embryological development, and theology (Tillich). It shows that wisdom is timeless and although written 200 years ago, Hegel's truth is valid and not subject to fashions as they so often are in philosophy.
This said, I have to say it is not rewarding to read this book unless you have familiarity with German idealism through Kant. Also, a thorough reading of Hegel's Logic is a prerequiste. Few people will understand this book without reading it in the original German as Hegel himself reframes the German language into a new way of thinking. I think all great philosophies shape the language they speak in profound ways. That is why it is so difficult to understand Hegel in English translation. You would have to create a whole new philosophy along Hegelian lines made for the English thinker. This is the daunting task of all translators. There obviously are concepts in Western thought that are portable across "platforms" and this is why translating Hegel happens at all in English. However the way concepts are used, the "process" of the concepts -- the "syntagms" -- is not entirely the same in both languages.
I wrote my master's thesis in philosophy on this work. At that time I could think Hegelian with the best of them but have lost the skill. Now I can't even understand what I wrote 20 years after the fact without going back to school. I have not been speaking Hegelian since then. A pity.
So, to get the most out of it, read this book in a structured environment where one has easy access to help. It will change your life as it has mine.

Format: Paperback
An advanced course in Hegel is probably the course which shuttled me forward toward a career in philosophy (and, eventually, theology). It is partly the responsibility of Hegel's thought and part my teacher (look up books by DG Leahy if you are interested in the first real new philosophy of the 21st century). Anyway, back to Hegel's "Mind." In this work, Hegel has created a tour-de-force in systematic philosophy following Kant.
though Kant has adopted the dualism of Plato, Hegel's synthesizing of Kant's ideas has resulted in an amazingly complex but understandable and brilliant work. Hegel proposes that the Mind is the second moment in a three-fold syllogism, following Nature but preceeding Logic (Reason). Here, Hegel explores the nuances of the Mind. Though the other two volumes of the three volume set are important, it seems Mind contains all the ideas of the other two.
If you enjoy hard German philosophy and have a penchant for the absolute idea, read Hegel as soon as possible!
