Description

A modern, highly readable translation of a primary text in Western philosophy. Complete translation in English with introduction, notes and glossary. The glossary is keyed to the primary occurrences of important terms in the text and provides insights into the concepts beyond the translation, especially useful pedagogical device for students coming to Hegel for the first time. Focus Philosophical Library translations are close to and are non-interpretative of the original text, with the notes and a glossary intending to provide the reader with some sense of the terms and the concepts as they were understood by Hegel's immediate audience.show more

Review quote

On the White translation: "This is the best English translation of Hegel's monumental....Philosophy of Right. It is accurate, crisp and highly readable. The supplementary materials, especially the glossary, will prove tremendously helpful to first-time readers. White treats the text with philosophical seriousness and makes it possible for readers at all levels, especially those for whom Hegel is unexplored territory, to gain access to Hegel's thought and argument...." -- Peter Kalkavage, St. John's Collegeshow more

Back cover copy

The Focus Philosophical Library publishes clear, faithful editions enabling access for modern students to the essential ideas and wisdom of the world's greatest thinkers. A modern and readable translation of a primary text in Western philosophy that includes an introduction, notes, and glossary. The glossary is keyed to the primary occurrences of important terms in the text and provides insights into the concepts beyond the translation--an especially useful pedagogical device for students coming to Hegel for the first time. "White's edition of Hegel's monumental work on politics is excellent: useful to first-time readers and specialists alike. It is the best English translation of this work to date: accurate down to small details of the German, and highly readable. The Introduction, notes, and glossary provide just the right amount of information and, more importantly, provoke philosophic reflection. . . One rejoices in a translation that gives students and teachers access to a profound and difficult work that can provoke the most searching examination of modern political assumptions." - Peter Kalkavage, St. John's College Alan White is Mark Hopkins Professor of Philosophy at Williams College.show more
