Overview

"This collection of Kojeve's thoughts about Hegel constitutesone of the few important philosophical books of the twentiethcentury—a book, knowledge of which is requisite to the fullawareness of our situation and to the grasp of the most modernperspective on the eternal questions of philosophy."—Allan Bloom (from the Introduction)

During the years 1933–1939, the Russian-born and German-educated Marxist political philosopher Alexandre Kojève (1902–1968) brilliantly explicated—through a series of lectures—the philosophy of Hegel as it was developed in the Phenomenology of Spirit. This collection of lectures—originally compiled by Raymond Queneau and edited for its English-language translation by Allan Bloom—shows the intensity of Kojève's study and thought and the depth of his insight into Hegel's Phenomenology. More important—for Kojève was above all a philosopher and not an ideologue—this profound and venturesome work on Hegel will expose the readers to the excitement of discovering a great mind in all its force and power.
