This interesting study of a largely neglected aspect of Hegel's philosophy highlights a number of areas where Hegel's insights are of relevance to ongoing psychological, sociological, and political debates. The work is only marred by its repetitive presentation.

Hegel describes the philosophy of mind beginning with the Stoics who
espoused logic, physics and ethics. Logic is the art of argumentation
which Bertrand Russell perfected. Hegel discusses the absoluteness
of criticism which is self-explanatory.

Knowledge itself has dual parts; such as, unity and reality. Without
unity, knowledge would be incomplete and without reality- knowledge
would lack credibility in a practical sense. Philosophy has been
described as the supreme arbiter between goodness and the
conscience of agent.

Hegel describes the State as the mortal God in that it can be
subject to change very much like the representation of the
aristocracy under the laws of France just prior to the French
Revolution. The American Revolution is yet another example of
the mortality of governance by the British over the colonies
in America.

Hegel explains that art, religion and philosophy rest on the
original mind constrained by the reality of life and circumstance.
Psychology has been described as a science which is a
constituent part of philosophy; such as, the description of
the mind popularized by the Stoics in the above.

Overall, Hegel's Philosophy of Mind is a challenging read
for people who are comfortable with deep thinking and
contemplation in logic, the arts and sciences. There are areas
where Hegel's work intersects with Freud's analysis of the mind.

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.

Using Text-to-Speech there are very few mispronunciations. The X-Ray system is great for bringing up foot notes at the time you need them and helps in the index. Even with the price of free it is nice to have the lending option.

The preface alone is a major work in the study of philosophy, and the rest of the text proves just as difficult. Really though Hegel is a writer whose language is just as beautiful as Camus, but he demands of the reader both their attention and their patience.

Hegel's Philosophy is one of the pillars of western philosophy, thanks to that we had Shopenhauer's and Nietzsche's work. I well recommend these work.

We know that just because something is rational it is not necessarily real. Why? Because the rational, when we imagine it, does not always instantiate itself in the World or us. Thus what is rational,which we understood, did not necessarily occur. But, it still might, therefore Hegel can never be proved by experience to be wrong. But, I would would not advise taking his positive thinking philosophy as a guide for life. As Kierkegaard has explained, we need God, to be the One to do the thinking for us sometimes
