Back cover copy

This is a first-time, meticulous translation of Kojeve's late, unfinished magnum opus, the "updating" of the Hegelian System of Knowledge, meaning its modification so as to make it comprehensible to the author himself and to his contemporaries. It is, however, much more than an exposition of its central terms, The Concept and Time and their identity. It is an acute, original review of the major themes of the West's philosophical tradition; it is, in fact, a philosophical education in itself. Robert Williamson has done this tradition a great service by making Kojeve's work accessible to Americans. - Eva Brann, Dean Emerita and Senior Faculty, St. John's College, Annapolis, Maryland We now recognize Alexandre Kojeve as one of the central figures of 20th century European philosophy. A translation of his The Concept, Time, and Discourse will enable English speaking readers to have a fuller understanding of his remarkably ambitious intellectual project. - Michael S. Roth, President, Wesleyan University, Middletown, more
