Description

An easy-to-digest introduction the "science of the experience of consciousness" as the German Idealist philosopher GEORG WILHELM FRIEDRICH HEGEL (1770-1831) understood it, this condensed version of Hegel's The Phenomenology of Spirit--which the author created himself for his Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences--explores Hegel's take on: - what mind is - consciousness and the intellect - the theoretical mind - memory, intuition, and imagination - the morality of conscience - moral life, or social ethics - and much more. This 1894 translation of the 1827-1830 German original, by Scottish philosopher and Oxford University professor WILLIAM WALLACE (1843-1897), remains a favorite of Hegel students, and is celebrated for its style and eloquence. This edition also features Wallace's five original introductory essays on the scope of a philosophy of mind, the aims and methods of psychology, the psychological aspects of ethics, psycho-genesis, and the role of ethics in politics.
