Hegel is, arguably, the most difficult of all philosophers. Interpreters have usually approached him as though he were developing Kantian and Fichtean themes. This book is the first to demonstrate in a systematic way that it makes much more sense to view Hegel's idealism in relation to the metaphysical and epistemological tradition stemming from Aristotle. No serious student of Hegel can afford to ignore this major new interpretation. It will also be of interest in such fields as political science and the history of ideas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...certainly the most complete and informative study of Hegel's interpretation of Aristotle and of the Aristotelian elements that can be found in Hegel's thought." Adriaan Peperzak, Loyola University Chicago

"He demonstrates an impressive and enviable mastery of the secondary literature on Hegel and Aristotle in Italian, German, French, and English. Hegel and Aristotle promises to become a classic work of reference." J.M. Fritzman, Philosophical Inquiry
