This anthology, reflecting virtually every stage of Hegel's life and every area of his interests, provides the most complete picture yet of the intellectual development and activity of this towering figure of philosophy.

Previously scattered, often hard to find, these pieces are of markedly different genres and forms: introductions, rough drafts, book reviews, poems, speeches, sermons, individual treatises, even student notes and other firsthand reports. In most cases the translations are reprinted in their original forms, with the original introductions and critical and explanatory notes by the translator or other commentator. By virtue of their heterogeneity, these works bring out the full scope of Hegel's intellectual interests and activities. We see the different, often surprising sides of his personality and intellectual character as he plays the unaccustomed roles of poet, priest, reformer, and polemicist. The editor's introduction puts the pieces into chronological perspective and situates them with respect to Hegel's major works.

Altogether, these writings provide a greater understanding of Hegel, the man and the philosopher, and are essential to anyone wishing to trace the evolution of his thought and work.
