G. W. F. Hegel is without doubt one of the most important and influential thinkers in the whole history of philosophy. Covering all the key concepts of his work, Starting with Hegel provides an accessible introduction to this hugely significant thinker. Thematically structured, the book leads the reader through a thorough overview of the development of Hegel's thought.
Craig B. Matarrese shows how the questions that guided his early writings in fact shaped his entire career and thereby offers a more thorough understanding of the roots of his philosophical concerns. Providing coverage of the full range of Hegel's ideas, the book offers detailed examinations of all his key texts, including The Phenomenology of Spirit and The Philosophy of Right. Crucially the book introduces the major thinkers and events that proved influential in the development of Hegel's thought, including Kant, Schiller, Fichte, Schelling, the French Revolution, the Enlightenment and romanticism. This is the ideal introduction for anyone coming to the work of this hugely important thinker for the first time.
