Since its publication in 1902, John Grier Hibben's classic work on Hegel's Encyclopedia
has been one of the clearest, most illuminating, most helpful, and most popular
expositions of this rich and difficult text. Nevertheless, its language has needed to be
modernized, its interpretations have needed to be revised and updated in view of recent
Hegel scholarship, and its findings have needed to be related to a wider context in the
history of philosophy. Writing as Hibben's co-author, Eric v.d. Luft has done all this
and more, adding two chapters and an annotated bibliography, expanding the glossary,
providing exact citations, keying the commentary directly to Hegel's section numbers,
supplying illustrations and examples, and strengthening the arguments. The result is
an excellent supplementary text for 21st-century students and Hegel scholars.
