      The first time I read this book I had to give it 1 star. I only read Hegel because I understood him to be a predecessor to Marx. As an introduction, or more, a platform to begin to comprehend Hegel, a prior other 'dialectical' text, I would not recommend this book. However, once one has a mildly firm grounding in the rhetoric of dialecticians, and the general trend of philosophies of 'being,' this book is a genuine masterpiece of lucidity. Therefore, it deserves one star for the mildly misleadin [...]

      Blew through this book over a few days.As part of my reading plan for the summer of 2012, working my way through Hegel's oeuvre, I was looking for introductions to Hegel to help get the overview of his magisterial system of philosophy--he is systematic to the highest degree, touching on just about every topic you can imagine.This book was helpful for sure and I return to it often to brush up on the main outlines of his thought. I certainly recommend this for anyone starting to read Hegel.

      Wonderful read. Great introduction to Hegel. It was nice to get some healthy criticism and defense of his philosophy near the end of the book. It makes me want to read "Phenomonology of Spirit" someday!

      I think this book is actually more useful to read after you've attempted to read some Hegel. I found that it clarified a few things that I found confusing to read on my own.
