Review Text

'Presents clearly and accurately the main ideas of the Philosophy of Right ... a most useful aid for reader's not familiar with Hegel's thought and terminology. It provides direct, yet intelligent, access into his moral, legal, social and political theory.' - Jean-Philippe Deranty, Australian Journal of Political Science


' ... Knowles's views are quite distinct and interesting ... which makes his book a valuable source to the philosophically advanced and Hegel specialist, as well as being a useful guide to the beginner.' - Bulletin of The Hegel Society of Great Britain
