"Stephen Houlgate has produced what is, without question, the most comprehensive and useful selection of Hegel texts yet. Not only has he provided generous selections from the whole range of Hegel's output, from the early writings through the mature system, but somehow he has also managed to include nearly every passage that has become important to later philosophers from Marx and Feuerbach through Heidegger, Adorno, Derrida and Deleuze. Add to this Houlgate's splendid introduction in which he lucidly outlines the fundamental gestures of Hegel's thought as radicalising and completing Kant's project for a critical philosophy, and one has a one-volume 'Hegel' that will deservedly dominate the field for years to come." J. M. Bernstein, Vanderbilt University
"Houlgate's collection is the best and most thoughtful assembly of Hegel's key writings in one volume to date. In some ways, this is the 'encyclopaedic' presentation of Hegel's thought that Hegel should have collected himself instead of the Encyclopaedia that he actually wrote." Terry Pinkard, Georgetown University
