p>G.W.F. Hegel (1770–1831) is one of the most important and sophisticated modern thinkers, but only now are his substantial contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of history, and philosophy of religion gaining the recognition they deserve. This companion is the first collection of essays to do justice to the extraordinary richness and diversity of Hegel's philosophy. Specially commissioned essays from international scholars cover all the main areas of Hegel's mature thought, as well as his influence on significant thinkers, such as Heidegger, Adorno, Derrida, and McDowell. More than just an overview of Hegel's work, the essays in this volume draw on the most up–to–date research to offer new perspectives on his thought. With insights for students and specialists alike, A Companion to Hegel provides a valuable understanding of the work of a subtle and challenging philosopher of the natural and the human world.

Great Audio Tome Desublated by Publishers
- Nelson Alexander
Audible producers, take note. Hogan's Heroes?
Why do you have readers who do not speak German reading a book about Hegel?The terrible German pronunciation is VERY distracting. This is not Hogan's Heroes. Cartoonish accents are not needed.This is a very interesting and valuable book. Please take care in the future to hire readers who have a working knowledge of the German language. Why is this so difficult? "Sache" in German should not sound like Satcher. Wow. Really? This is simple stuff guys. And BTW, telling the reader about the differences in English and German consonants such as V and W would go a long way to making this audio book better. And then there are the vowels. Hearing a German word is enough to be able to spell it. "sein" and "sehen" are pronounced differently. It's not rocket science.Fortunately, the early chapter by Houlgate on the P of S is worth the whole book price. Please continue to add titles from Houlgate to the Audible collection. Consulting with the author would be a great step to add to the production process.
Please hire readers who can pronounce German words correctly. And double check with German people!
Try to convince me that these are actually the pronunciations of an early 19th C. Stuttgarter/Prussian scholar. Good luck with that.
please take better care. your listeners are aware.
