Dear Colleagues, I would like to announce the publication of a new introductory volume on G.W.F. Hegel, Reading Hegel: The Introductions (melbourne: re-press, 2008). Bringing together for the first time all major Introductions in one place, the book ambitiously attempts to present readers with Hegel's systematic thought through his Introductions alone. While each of Hegel's Introductions can stand alone, capturing a facet of his overarching idea of truth, compiled together, they lay out the intricate tapestry of Hegel's thought, woven with a dialectic that progresses from one book to another, one philosophical moment to another.
I do not think of the Philos list as an advertising platform. But what I did think it fit to inform the community about was a certain unique aspect of this publication, about which I am rather proud: the not-for-profit publisher, re-press (a pioneer of continental philosophy in the anglophone world) is providing the entire book as OPEN ACCESS, which is to say that it can be downloaded by anyone free of charge in pdf version. Obviously, it can also be purchased as a traditional printed book (in soft cover).
