From the Back Cover

Offering the first comprehensive examination of Hegel's theory of the unconscious abyss, Jon Mills rectifies a much neglected area of Hegel scholarship. Mills shows that the unconscious is the foundation for conscious and self-conscious life and is responsible for the normative and pathological forces that fuel psychic development. In addition, Mills illustrates how Hegel's idea of the unconscious abyss transcends his time and is a pivotal concept to his entire philosophical system-one that advances the current understanding of the psychoanalytic mind.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mills does a impressive job of articulating the night-like mine of the unconscious. He establishes it as a duality of sleeping and emerging and then develops the emerging in a systematic way. He and Winfield are the two best on Hegel's psychology. I found a lot of new important content here. It is probably post-grad material but it is fairly accessible to many levels. Certainly a new area of interest for Hegel followers. Highly recommended.

He also includes a section on the sickness of the soul and the regression of mind from consciousness back into the abyss. While the bulk of the book is dedicated to progression unto consciousness, there is the included material on regression.
