Editorial Reviews

A guide for the beginning student of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit explaining his difficult argument without using his technical vocabulary. Assumes some knowledge of the history of philosophy from Descartes to Kant. Paper edition (unseen), $9.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

This is an incredibly rich and provocative book for such a slim volume, and it will no doubt become a standard accompaniment to many classes on the Phenomenology, a kind of short, lucid skeleton key to the whole book.--Terry Pinkard, Georgetown University

Out of his magisterial scholarship Harris gives us three gifts in a surprisingly small package. First there is a lucid account of what Hegel’s philosophical goal is. Then there is a running summary of the Phenomenology. . . . Finally, we get a concise account of what it all means, Harris’s view of the interrelationships and relative significance of the various parts of the system. --Merold Westphal, Fordham University
