Picturing Hegel : An Illustrated Guide to Hegel's Encyclopaedia Logic
In her innovative take on G.W. F. Hegel's The Encyclopaedia Logic, Julie E. Maybee uses pictures and diagrams to cut through the philosopher's dense, difficult writing. Picturing Hegel: An Illustrated Guide to Hegel's Encyclopaedia Logic utilizes diagrams in order to rehabilitate Hegel's logic for serious consideration by showing how each stage develops step-by-step from earlier stages according to definite, logical patterns. This interpretation makes Hegel's work accessible and understandable for new and experienced readers alike.

To anyone who takes Hegel's own self-conception seriously, there is no way around studying his system of speculative logic, since this was, to him, the basis of his other philosophical accomplishments. Maybee's book is a remarkable achievement in making Hegel's logic accessible to students as well as specialists. -- Allen Wood, Indiana University, Bloomington One of the chief merits of her detailed account is its balanced approach...Maybee's account will provoke the reader to rethink what counts as logic. Even if we do not teach speculative logic in our introductory classes, Maybee's patient and persistent explanation of this difficult text is a rewarding read. Journal of the History of Philosophy
