This original and challenging book presents a radical revision of traditional assessments of Hegel. Gillian Rose argues that the classical origins of contemporary non-Marxist and Marxist sociology rest on the -neo-Kantian' paradigm and that Hegel's thought anticipates and criticises the limitations of this pardaigm and the problems of methodologism and moralism in sociological method. Hegel's major mature works are expounded in the light og his early radical writings. From this unusal perspective Dr Rose shows that Hegel's speculative discourse is a powerful critique of bourgeois property relations and law, of art and religion as misrepresentation and of the inversions and end of culture. The book concludes with a discussion of the end of philosophy, the repetition of sociology and the culture and fate of Marxism.
