Hegel is an immensely important yet difficult philosopher. His Philosophy of Mind is one of the main pillars of his thought. Michael Inwood, highly respected for his previous work on Hegel, presents this central work to the modern reader in an accurate new translation supported by a philosophically sophisticated editorial introduction and elucidating scholarly commentary.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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
