Product description

"This collection of Kojeve's thoughts about Hegel constitutesone of the few important philosophical books of the twentiethcentury a book, knowledge of which is requisite to the fullawareness of our situation and to the grasp of the most modernperspective on the eternal questions of philosophy." Allan Bloom (from the Introduction)During the years 1933 1939, the Russian-born and German-educated Marxist political philosopher Alexandre Kojeve (1902 1968) brilliantly explicated through a series of lectures the philosophy of Hegel as it was developed in the Phenomenology of Spirit. This collection of lectures originally compiled by Raymond Queneau and edited for its English-language translation by Allan Bloom shows the intensity of Kojeve's study and thought and the depth of his insight into Hegel's Phenomenology. More important for Kojeve was above all a philosopher and not an ideologue this profound and venturesome work on Hegel will expose the readers to the excitement of discovering a great mind in all its force and power."

During the years 1933-1939, the Marxist political philosopher Alexandre Kojeve brilliantly explicated--through a series of lectures--the philosophy of Hegel as it was developed in the Phenomenology of Spirit. Based on the major work by Kojeve, this collection of lectures was chosen by Bloom to show the intensity of Kojeve's study and thought and the depth of his insight into Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit.
