The first anthology explicitly dedicated to Hegel's linguistic thought, Hegel and Language presents various facets of a new wave of Hegel scholarship. The chapters are organized around themes that include the possibility of systematic philosophy, truth and objectivity, and the relation of Hegel's thought to analytic and postmodern approaches to language. While there is considerable diversity among the various approaches to and assessments of Hegel's linguistic thought, the volume as a whole demonstrates that not only was language central for Hegel, but also that his linguistic thought still has much to offer contemporary philosophy. The book also includes an extensive introductory survey of the linguistic thought of the entire German Idealist movement and the contemporary issues that emerged from it.

Review quote

"This book contains a range of distinct considerations brought to bear on Hegel's views and uses of language. The essays are not mere expositions of Hegel's views but are serious attempts at interpretation of the significance of Hegel's views, evaluation of the cogency and intelligibility of his position, and suggestions as to how these views relate to Hegel's philosophical predecessors and to later philosophy of language."
