This fairly small book must take its place as the best introductory study of Hegel's Phenomenology available." -Philosophy and Phenomenological Research

Westphal's book is a comprehensive guide to the argument of the entire phenomenology.... will repay close study by serious undergraduate and graduate students of philosophy." -Choice

This detailed interpretation of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit seeks to show that the unity of this classic work may be found in the integration of its transcendental and sociological-historical themes.
