    1. Published in 2000, this is the first major biography of Hegel in English Hegel died in 1831 Why did it take so long Well, a big part of the reason may be that the man just didn t lead a particularly scintillating life Pinkard doesn t have a lot to work with in terms of human drama There s a lot of academic backbiting and university politics Compare, say, the life of Marx, and I think most would agree this is pretty thin stuff As far as his subject s personality, Pinkard keeps insisting that Hege [...]


    2. Formally this one should go on my biography shelf, but this work on Hegel s career so helpfully addressed my own reading limitations that I have to count it as a work of philosophy I had read The Phenomenology than once, and dutifully slogged through the readable lectures on aesthetics and the history of philosophy So before reading Pinkard s work I had a pretty good handle on Hegel in a history of ideas sort of way But Hegel never took my breath away as has practically every other major philo [...]


    3. Incredible Successfully debunks some of the notorious Hegelian myths and presents Hegel as a person that, over the course of the book, I came to admire even than before.


    4. G W F Hegel s philosophy, and the philosophies of those he influenced, especially Karl Marx, have been accused of obscurantism Analytic and positivistic philosophers, such as A J Ayer, Bertrand Russell, and the critical rationalist Karl Popper, accused Hegel and Hegelianism of being obscure About Hegel s philosophy, Arthur Schopenhauer wrote that it is a colossal piece of mystification, which will yet provide posterity with an inexhaustible theme for laughter at our times, that it is a pseudo p [...]


    5. I read this book during the winter and early spring of 2009 As I m sure you already know since you re taking the time to read what I have to say about this volume, which is not exactly a popular title this is an intellectual biography of the most important post Kantian philosopher, G.W.F Hegel This man had four names Wow I was taking an undergraduate course with Robert Brandom at the University of Pittsburgh on nineteenth century German philosophy as I was working through this book, and I do thi [...]


    6. Instrumental in my evolution from oil painting to I would reference this book throughout grad school and I read it as an undergrad What I specifically like about this book among the other Hegel books is Pinkard s way of translating the unintelligible gobbeldy gook into something I can digest Hegel is the last platform from which the contemporary artist takes that leap into her own right while leaving the past behind Real art is the making, not the made.


    7. It was everything it promised to be, a thorough overview of Hegel s life and a clear overview of his thoughts, work and influence I found it inspiring and helping to overcome to bridge to go and read Hegel himself I already made a start in his Philosophy of Right, which I hope is going to be the subject of my bachelor thesis.


    8. Terry Pinkard n Bankas yay nlar ndan kan Hegel biyografisini okumay bitirdim Kitab be endim Kant biyografisinden daha ba ar l Olanla anlat lan fark hep vard r ama bu kitap bu fark az tuttu u kan s n uyand rd bende Bir de zellikle ya ant lara daha l ml ve taraftarl ktan uzak bakmak gere ini hissetmeme yol a t Okumam iyi oldu diyeyim.


    9. An amazing work of scholarship that comes from a philosopher s point of view and yet ably weaves in the historical and biographical background Highly recommended, but at its heft its not for the casual reader.



    10. Interesante biograf a que intenta adem s dar una explicaci n clara de muchos de los conceptos b sicos de la obra de Hegel Bien escrita.


    11. A great biography, and lots of good insightful commentary on Hegel s most important work Beautifully written.
